Tooth decay or loss of a tooth can be very painful. Suddenly, some of the simple things you took for granted, like chewing your food, can become challenging. Our experienced team of dentists at the Parkland Mall Dental Centre is dedicated to finding the right solutions for your dental problems.
An implant is essentially an artificial root that integrates with your jaw bone and replaces the root of a natural tooth. Dental implants can be used to replace a missing tooth and are very commonly used to secure crowns, bridges and dentures. Implants are a popular choice because they allow the patient to live with an experience that’s very similar to the one provided by natural teeth. Dental implants also help preserve the underlying bone for an all-over healthier smile and structure. Our dental clinic in Red Deer works with a team of dental specialists to maximize success.
If you are missing a single tooth, an implant can be placed and then fitted with a crown, providing a restoration that is so lifelike, it’s unlikely anyone will realize it’s not your natural tooth. For replacing multiple missing teeth, sometimes a fixed bridge is used.
Dental implants have numerous advantages. They help you with your overall self-esteem and are an exceptionally strong and natural looking replacement of your own tooth/teeth. Being able to eat your food effectively can help support your overall health. Dental implants can also be used to permanently affix dentures. The dental implants act like natural teeth and let you carry your regular routine without any hassle.
Getting dental implants can also assist in supporting your speech, comfort, and your chewing abilities. With dental implants, you do not have to remove them. You can carry out your daily routine with your dental implants in and completely forget about them, unlike
alternatives such as removable dentures, which can require additional maintenance throughout the day.
Planning for dental implants focuses on the general health condition of the patient. There are a few health conditions that could exclude patients from receiving implants as they can increase the risk of failure. Poor oral hygiene, heavy smokers and diabetics are all at greater risk for a variant of gum disease that affects implants. For a dental implant to become permanently stable, the body must be able to grow bone to the surface of the implant.
