At Joly Dental Care in Edmonton, there are a variety of dental services available for replacing missing teeth. One alternative to dental bridges or dentures includes dental implants. Dental implants can be used to replace missing teeth roots and provide extra support to artificial replacement teeth. You will find that dental implants are both comfortable and resemble your natural teeth quite easily.
What Are Dental Implants?
A dental implant is an artificial root. Usually made of titanium metal, a dental implant is surgically inserted into your jawbone to act as a support to dental prosthesis and replace the root of a tooth. An artificial replacement tooth is then attached to the dental implant so that it can be anchored to the jaw and held in place. Implants provide a sturdy foundation for both fixed and removable replacement teeth like dentures, bridges, crowns, and more.
Dental implants are a viable option for many patients. You are a good candidate for dental implants if you are in good general health, have healthy gums, and have enough bone in your jaw to hold the implant. If you find that you do not have enough bone in your jaw for a dental implant to be placed, a bone graft is often the solution. You can discuss whether or not dental implants are right for you by contacting Joly Dental Care for a consultation.
