Dr. Shruti Chahal provides restorative dental treatments for missing teeth at Foothills Dentistry. Dental implants are one of the most versatile treatments used to restore single missing teeth or secure dental bridges or dentures. There are multiple benefits of dental implants that patients experience in our Calgary, AB dental office.
The Benefits of Dental Implants
Implants offer many advantages to patients over removable or temporary restorations. Dental implants:
- Improve Tooth and Gum Health: Patients who have lost teeth are at risk of developing more complex dental issues down the road. When you are missing just one tooth, the remaining teeth may shift and overcrowd to fill in the gap. It is difficult to clean between overcrowded teeth, and plaque can easily build up on the teeth and gums. Restoring missing teeth with implants prevents complications down the road and supports a balanced and healthy smile.
- Make Eating and Speaking Easier: Traditional dentures or dental bridges do not fully restore the function of the bite. Dental implants replace the tooth at its root, to create a more stable foundation used to support a denture or bridge. Implant-supported restorations do not come with dietary restrictions so patients can enjoy the foods they love.
- Have a High Success Rate: When done correctly, implant treatment has up to a 95% success rate. Before implant treatment, we make sure that patients are in good health. Patients should also refrain from smoking or tobacco use during treatment as this can hinder the healing process.
- Look and Feel Natural: Dental implants blend in with the look of your natural smile. Even if you require an implant denture for whole arches of lost teeth, we can ensure that your custom restoration looks and feels natural. Once implants are healed and capped off with dental crowns or dental restoration, they feel and look just like natural teeth.
