Dental Implants - Am I a right candidate?
Dental Implants Calgary:
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is inserted into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants may be an option for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason.
If you have lost one or more teeth you can consider the option of dental implants. But not all can be considered as successful candidates for Dental Implant procedure. Here are few criteria that need to be fulfilled to be a successful dental implant candidate:
- Have Healthy Teeth and gums.
- Have sufficient bone density to support the implants
- Are non smokers and are willing to stop smoking during their dental implant procedure.
Advantages of Dental Implants
- Dental Implants looks and feels like your natural teeth
- Dental Implants can last a life time if cared properly
- Your Implanted Tooth cannot be affected with dental cavities.
Different types of Dental Implants:
Single Tooth Replacement:
As the name suggest, this implant is used to support single missing tooth.
Multiple Tooth Replacement:
Here multiple missing teeth can be replaced with multiple implants supporting fixed bridgework.
Combinations of fixed and removable bridgework:
This is generally where implants are used to support a section of fixed bridgework.
This is where two or more implants, either standard or mini-implants, are placed to provide stabilization of the denture and preserve the underlying bone.
