Implant Restoration

At Richmond Dental, we are your implant dentists in Calgary. Dental implants are a permanent solution to missing teeth. An implant provides you with a stable and reliable replacement and are the closest feeling you get to your own natural teeth. With a dental implant you can enjoy eating as you normally do, you can feel temperatures of hot and cold foods, you can talk without worry, and showcase your beautiful smile with ease.

Our dentists in Calgary can offer you a number of solutions to best choose your type of implant. A dental implant is surgically placed into the bone of your jaw, and through a process known as osseointegration, the implant will fuse together with the bone. These posts are made from titanium which is a biocompatible material allowing for this specialized integration to take place. A dental implant essentially replaces the root of the tooth allowing it to provide feedback to the jawbone and help to maintain its health.

Then, we put an abutment on top of the titanium post. The abutment is the part in between the implant and the eventual crown or bridge. It plays an integral role in keeping the transplant stable and working. Once the implant and abutment are in place, we put on the crown or bridge. Because there are different types of crowns, there are options to suit your budget. You can have inexpensive implants or luxurious ones with a clean cosmetic look and our dentists in Calgary can help you select which one would work best for your budget.

The process of an implant restoration takes place over several months. The first surgery is the process of placing screws into the jawbone. Following this process, your mouth will need some time to heal. The second surgery, the implants, which were hidden below the gum line, are revealed and the titanium posts are attached. You’ll need 6-8 months for a full heal to take place. These posts will hold the abutment and the artificial tooth or teeth.

The surgery is done at our dental clinic in Calgary and the use of a local anesthesia is used to make you comfortable during the process. In certain situations there are forms of sedation available either through nitrous oxide or IV drip. At Richmond Dental, our goal is to provide you with the ultimate care and comfort and to educate you on the whole process. Ask as many questions as you like, we’re here to help you through the process and give you back a great smile.
