Dental Implants in Calgary, AB

You may have heard people talking about dental implants and created a sense of dread based on what you’ve heard. But that’s not the case if you understand exactly what’s involved in the procedure ahead of time. Your comfort is our priority, so let’s lay out some details you might need to understand when considering dental implants in SW Calgary.

First, you may be wondering why you even need an implant. Simply put, if you’re missing a tooth, an implant is used to fill the space. But why is it important that the space be filled? Since a missing tooth can create problems for the surrounding teeth, such as improper alignment, an implant is used to fill the space.

You may also need an implant if a tooth you still have has become too sick to treat. As such, it will need to be removed and an implant put in its place.

A dental implant is an artificial tooth that will take the place of a real one that’s missing. Implants are designed to attach to the jawbone to secure it to the bone. It’s kind of like an anchor for the artificial tooth.

You won’t have to worry about your implant being noticeable to others since a good implant should only appear on an x-ray that your dentist will see. In fact, some dentists can’t even tell you have an implant without first looking at an x-ray.

Note, though, that if multiple teeth are missing, a bridge may be needed to replace them at the same time. The team at Comfort Care Dental in Calgary, AB can help you understand exactly what’s needed before you get started.

Keep in mind this is not a one-and-done procedure. It can take up to two months of healing time after the implant has been placed before a crown can be placed on top of it – often the last step in the process. But the healing time is different for everyone depending on the strength of the bone the implant is anchored to.

Dental implants are the perfect way to take care of a missing tooth and give you the winning smile you’ve been dreaming of.
