Calgary Dental Implants: Restore Your Smile

Dental implants are a transformative solution for missing teeth in Calgary. Our team offers advanced implant technology and personalized care to restore not just your smile, but your confidence and ability to eat and speak with ease.

What is a dental implant?

Nothing compares to the natural tooth. However, people can lose teeth for various reasons, including decay, trauma, gum disease, and bone disease. You need teeth to eat, chew, and speak. We at The Port Dental offer dental implants in Calgary with choices to replace your missing tooth: dentures, crown and bridge, and implants! Implants are the most recent prosthetic advancements and the closest substitute for missing teeth.

Dental Implants are surgical fixtures resembling screws that are placed into the jawbone to replace a missing tooth. On this screw, a crown is affixed, which is a permanent dental implant that looks and functions similar to the crown portion of a natural tooth. The titanium tooth root prosthesis is a permanent tooth implant made of biocompatible materials that will remain secure in the jaw bone without causing complications.

Why do you need Dental Implants?

People come up with requirements for dental implants in Calgary, SE, where they are looking to replace one or more teeth. The tooth implant can work as a single tooth or bridge or support for a full mouth denture. Yes! Implants are an excellent option to replace single, multiple, or whole sets of teeth. Our dentists in Calgary can help you determine whether you need partial implants or full dental implants.

Dental implants are used to replace missing or broken teeth in adults of all ages. While replacing implants in adolescence, facial growth and development must be complete before considering implant surgery. When considering tooth implants, it is necessary to consider your smoking habits and health conditions like diabetes and osteoporosis. All of these conditions have the potential to impair the healing and placement of permanent dental implants.

Dental implants may be beneficial in reversing bone loss. Indeed, one of the primary advantages of getting dental implants in Calgary over tooth replacement procedures is bone loss due to the biocompatibility of the titanium used in the implants, which naturally stimulates bone growth.

What are the types of Dental Implants?

Mini dental implants 

These are used in areas with insufficient space or bone to support a full-size implant, such as the lower front teeth. Small permanent teeth implants can also be used to secure removable overdentures.

Standard size implants 

It is a type of implant restoration made of biocompatible titanium and uses insufficient bone and space to support them. They are also known as conventional dental implants and are approximately the size of a natural tooth root. In most dental implant surgeries for seniors, standard implants support the crowns independently of one another. Additionally, they can be used in pairs to secure a multi-tooth bridge.

Implant-Supported Dentures

Implant-supported dentures are a type of overdenture that is supported and stabilized by dental implants. They are especially beneficial for patients who lack teeth in either the upper or lower jaw. They will be used to provide structural support and increase the procedure’s longevity.
