Are you missing one or more teeth?
You may want to consider replacing missing teeth with dental implants. Dental implants are small titanium posts that your dentist will surgically insert into the jaw bone. A well placed dental implant mimics the function of the natural tooth root, providing a suitable foundation for a dental crown, denture, or dental bridge. Dental implants offer patients a long lasting, natural looking solution for their lost teeth.
At Foothills Dentistry, Dr. Shruti Chahal and Dr. Taneshwar Chahal offer full-service dental implants for patients with missing teeth. They offer years of combined training and expertise in implant dentistry, restorative dentistry, and other procedures. Our Calgary dentist office is your one-stop shop for all your implant dentistry needs. To determine if you are an ideal candidate for the implant procedure, contact our office to schedule an appointment. We will be happy to explore your tooth replacement options with you and determine if dental implants are right for you.
Why Choose Dental Implants?
Dental implants are one of the most common solutions dentists use to address missing teeth. They mimic the appearance and function of the natural tooth and tooth root, which makes them one of the most popular tooth replacement treatments among patients. Not only do patients choose dental implants for their appearance, but they also choose them for the many advantages they offer for your dental health. Patients undergoing the implant process can look forward to these key benefits:
- Helps preserve the natural bone structure in the jaw
- Long-term solution for missing teeth
- Can replace one or more missing teeth
- Restores function and beauty to your smile
- Reduces the appearance of facial sagging
- Helps improve chewing and speaking function caused by missing teeth
- A high patient success rate
- No eating restrictions due to missing teeth
How Is The Dental Implant Procedure Performed?
As a full-service dental practice in Calgary, Alberta, Foothills dentistry offers a complete range of dental implant services for patients in need of advanced restorative dentistry treatment. Our dentist in Calgary will evaluate the teeth, gums, and surrounding bone structure to determine if you are an ideal candidate for dental implants. In many cases, patients who undergo the dental implant procedure will need to have an adequate amount of healthy bone structure. That is what the dentist will use to support the dental implants. However, we may recommend certain treatments to help prepare the jaw for the dental implant process. Your unique treatment plan will depend on the specifics of your case.
We utilize advanced technology during the planning placement of your dental implants. Advanced dental technology helps create a more accurate and efficient dental implant treatment plan, which increases patient success and satisfaction.
In most cases, your dentist will complete the dental implant procedure over a series of months. Once the dental implants are in place, they may take 3-6 months to fully fuse into the jaw bone. After the implants have fused, the abutment is placed and we will take another set of impressions for the fabrication of your final restoration. The type of restoration you receive will depend on the location and number of missing teeth. After the fabrication of your restoration, we will place your restoration during your final visit. We perform all aspects of your dental implant care from the comfort of our Calgary dentist office.
Dental Implants FAQs
Will dental implants last a lifetime?
Implant crowns can last up to 20 years depending on one’s diet, oral health, and the placement of the implant. The post lasts a lifetime. The better care you take of your oral and overall health the longer dental implants are likely to last. Studies have shown that dental implant crowns last at least 10 years if not many more. After that, your dentist will simply remove and replace them.
Will tooth implants impact an MRI or airport security?
Tooth implants contain titanium metal. This is not a magnetic material, so implants should have no effect on airport security or MRIs. In order to have an effect on either, tooth implants would have to possess material with magnetic properties.
Which tooth implants are the best?
The three types of dental implants are endosteal, zygomatic, and subperiosteal. Endosteal is the safest and most popular choice. Endosteal implants contain small screws that go into the jawbone and hold the new tooth in place. Since these tooth implants contain titanium, the body is less likely to reject them than other metals.
Do tooth implants work like real teeth?
Many patients choose dental implants because they are the closest option one can choose to match the look and feel of natural teeth. They are permanent fake teeth that function and look just like your natural ones. Because they are permanent they should always stay in your mouth and feel the same as your other teeth.
Can dentists complete tooth implants in one day?
Yes. There are dental implant procedures that dentists and oral surgeons can complete in one day. Dental professionals refer to them as “immediate load” or “same-day” implants. However, not all patients are good candidates for this type of procedure. You could consult a dentist to determine the best treatment plan for your needs.
Can I get tooth implants while pregnant?
If you are pregnant, you should probably wait to get tooth implants. Doctors usually postpone elective dental procedures until after delivery. There are potential risks to the developing fetus, such as exposure to radiation during X-rays and the use of anesthesia. Local anesthesia is safe during pregnancy, but your dentist may recommend general anesthesia because of the placement of the tooth implant. Dentists and medical professionals do not usually recommend general anesthesia during pregnancy. If you have dental issues during pregnancy, it’s best to consult with your dentist and obstetrician for guidance on safe treatment
