Dental implants can one option to replace missing teeth. Tooth implants help restore form and function to your mouth.
Expressions Dental™ is a dental clinic in Calgary which provides implant placement. Our general dentist, Dr. D. David, performs the procedure on qualifying patients. Before starting a dental implant procedure, x-rays and scans are taken of the bone to assess the condition. Sometimes the structure or quality of the bone is insufficient to place the implant, so in that case we may suggest bone grafting and/or other procedures to get the site ready for an implant.
The implantation process involves placing a titanium post into the missing part of bone. An Implant takes time to become a part of the missing area. It may take three to six months to heal and integrate with the surrounding bone. As soon as the implant fuses with the bone, a special post is then attached to the implant to give support to a new porcelain or gold crown. At the end, we attach a crown on that post to restore form and function.
