Though it may seem uncommon, many people experience situations that result in the loss of a permanent tooth. This loss may be due to injury or trauma to the tooth, advanced decay, periodontal disease, or necessary extraction. Once a permanent tooth is lost, the effects can be long-lasting when it comes to feeling confident about your appearance. Dental implants in Calgary, AB may be the solution.
Dental implants are part of restorative dentistry in which our dentist near you constructs implanted roots to anchor replacement teeth; if you are missing one or more teeth and considering dental implants, contact Meadows View Dental for information about implants near you.
The dental implant process can take several weeks to complete and requires expertise in oral surgery. Dr. Arathi Bimagani offers professional skills in restorative dentistry in SE Calgary, AB. Essentially, dental implants work through titanium posts implanted in the bone of a socket that is missing a tooth. These posts function as new tooth roots for a replacement tooth. As the bone heals, the jawbone grows around the implanted post and keeps it in place.
Dr. Arathi Bimagani then creates a model of your bite with impressions of your teeth. The new tooth, designed to look and feel like the original, is affixed to a connector post, which is then attached to the implanted post.
Dental implants can be a solution for those whose missing teeth are causing discomfort, stress, and/or a negative self-image. Meadows View Dental offers implants for new and existing patients. Schedule an appointment to see if dental implants are the right restorative solution for you.
There are many measures designed to replace missing teeth, such as dentures and bridges. Dental implants offer significant benefits in comparison because they are designed to be a permanent solution. Implants function just the same as your original teeth would.
