Dental Implants - Tooth Replacement in Edmonton, Alberta
Dental implants, also known as tooth implants, are a good choice for patients who are missing one or more teeth. They are surgically fastened below the gum line using an anchor. Tooth implants fuse to the jawbone and serve as a foundation for replacement teeth, dental crowns, or bridges. The final result is a new, natural-looking smile with no gaps. Filling in gaps is important because surrounding teeth can drift when there is an open space next to them, causing problems such as gum disease and decay.
If you have more questions about implant dentistry, or would like to learn if dental implants are right for your tooth replacement, contact Dr. Podilsky in Edmonton, Alberta today.
Candidates for Tooth Implants
Because surgery is required, only people with healthy gums and strong jawbones are considered good candidates for dental implants. Older people often believe that their age will limit their ability to be a candidate for tooth implants, but this is not the case. As long as they are in good health, they can undergo the surgery. If you believe you may be a good candidate for dental implants, contact Dr. Podilsky in Edmonton, Alberta today.
Dental Implant Surgery
After determining that you are a good candidate for dental implants, Dr. Podilsky will then decide which type of implant is right for your treatment. There are two types of dental implants in use today: endosteal (placed in the bone) and subperiosteal (placed on the bone). The anchor of the implant is surgically implanted in the jaw and the bone is then allowed to fuse around it for a period of several weeks. After the implant has taken root, an artificial tooth is created and fitted to the post of the implant.
Caring for Your Dental Implants
Your new tooth implants should be cared for like the rest of your teeth, with daily flossing and brushing, as well as regular visits to the dentist. With proper care and maintenance, your dental implants should last for many years to come.
