Dental implants are a great way to replace missing teeth. A dental implant is an artificial root made of titanium metal. It is inserted into the jawbone to replace the root of the natural tooth. An artificial replacement tooth is attached to the implant. The implant acts as an anchor to hold the replacement tooth in place. Implants are surgically placed into the upper or lower jaw bone by a General Dentist or a specialist called a Periodontist. The teeth which are attached to implants are very natural looking and can restore a person’s smile and function back to how it was prior to losing the tooth!
Complete and Partial Dentures:
Dentures are removable dental appliances which act as a replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissue. They are made to resemble your natural teeth and can also enhance your smile. It not only improves a person’s esthetics but also speech and ability to eat.
Dentures are classified into complete dentures, partial dentures or implant-supported dentures. To replace multiple missing teeth, a partial denture may be the most cost-effective option. At our NW Calgary denture clinic, this procedure can be done in as little as 2-3 appointments.
Over time, dentures have to be remade, relined or repaired due to normal wear and tear. Our NW Calgary denture clinic also offers denture reline and repair in a timely manner.
