At Canmore Dental Centre, we offer dental implants to patients in Canmore and the surrounding area. When we lose teeth as adults, our primary concern is the annoyance of having to contend with a gap in our bite and smile. We do not realize that there are far greater concerns than difficulties with biting and chewing. Bone, like all living tissue, must work to remain healthy and strong. When teeth are removed, the bone that held them in becomes weak and begins to erode away. Bridges and dentures do fill the gaps, but they do nothing to stop the bone erosion. Once again, science has provided the answer – dental implants.
How it Works
A dental implant is a tiny threaded post made from titanium alloy, a strong, biocompatible metal. Through a tiny incision, the implant is threaded into the jaw or mandible, becoming actually fused with the bone. Once fused, this durable, permanent post is ready to receive your ceramic replacement tooth. Not only is the restored tooth stable and ready for use, the bone below the gum is regularly exercised, stopping bone erosion in its tracks. For this reason, implants are also a viable option to help support dentures.
Whether you require a single implant or a full-mouth restoration, we are available at your convenience.
Please let family and friends know that they have a whole new reason to smile. They can book their implant consultation with Dr. Maier today.
