Dental Implants in Calgary are one of the most sought after solutions to overcome missing/broken teeth or chipped teeth. Not only does Dental Implants Calgary masks your missing teeth, but these are also permanent solutions with several other advantages as well.
This article is about commonly used basic techniques to place Dental Implants in your mouth. The type of treatment procedure used to place your dental implants largely depends on the severity of the case and also the best suited treatment method chosen by your Calgary Dentist.
Implants can be inserted into your mouth either by One Stage or Two Stage surgical techniques. As the name suggest these Implants surgeries can be operated in one step or two steps respectively.
In one step procedure an abutment is placed during the surgery. An abutment acts like a connector that connects the implant from the bone into the mouth. The abutment comes out through the gum tissues. After that a time frame of 3 to 6 months as a healing period in which your dental implants fuses into the bone. Once the implant has been fused into your bone a crown is then placed over the implant, that gives you the look and feel of a natural teeth. Generally your dentist will recommend a one stage implant procedure only when your jaw bone quality is good, as this will give implants an good initial stability.
In a two stage dental implant procedure, the implants are placed on the jawbones and covered with gum tissues. The implants are not exposed to the mouth but are wrapped by the gum tissues and are left to heal. Once the implants are healed, another set of surgery is performed where the abutment for securing the crowns are fixed. This type of surgery is used in scenarios where the bone quality is poor, and there is need to regenerate bone around the implants.
