When you have one or more missing teeth, Abougoush Family Dental Care offers a number of solutions from dentures and bridges to dental implants. Calgary patients often prefer dental implants due to their closer resemblance to the function and appearance of natural teeth. At Abougoush Family Dental Care, we provide support to popular prosthetics like bridges and dentures by inserting dental implants. Calgary patients can use dental implants to find permanent relief from a number of oral health problems, including:

  • Teeth shifting into open spaces
  • Bone loss in the jaw
  • Speech impediments
  • Chewing difficulties

If you have missing teeth, or a damaged tooth that requires extraction, our dentist in Calgary can help.

What Steps Are Followed to Surgically Insert Dental Implants?

A dental implant is a permanent dental prosthetic made of a titanium metal rod that is surgically placed into your jawbone. This whole process is usually done in two parts:

  1. The titanium post is set into your jawbone. Over the course of a few weeks, the post fuses with the bone of your jaw and becomes a sturdy anchor for the replacement tooth.
  2. A natural-looking replacement tooth is secured to the post. The result is a sturdy and natural-looking prosthetic tooth that blends nicely with surrounding teeth.

Most patients prefer dental implants to other tooth replacement methods because of their strength and appearance.

Why Dental Implants Can Benefit Patients of All Ages

Dental implants in Calgary offer benefits to both young and old patients. As long as there is enough bone to support the prosthetic, dental implants can be used for a single missing tooth or a string of missing teeth in both the upper and lower jaw. It’s important to fill in the gaps missing teeth leave behind to keep your natural teeth that are left from shifting out of place and causing more problems. As a bonus, dental implants will not irritate your gums, and will allow you to speak, smile, and eat with the same confidence and efficiency you would have with your natural teeth. You can talk with one of our dentists to see if you are a good candidate for dental implants.
