Restore The Look, Feel And Function Of Your Smile!
At Infinity Dental Group, we understand that losing one or more teeth can have a major impact on the shape of your mouth, the appearance of your smile and the feel and function of your remaining teeth. Missing teeth can also affect your ability to speak, bite and chew food and can contribute to the degeneration of your other teeth.
Dental implants in Edmonton are made of titanium and are a practical way to replace one or more missing teeth and restore the function and appearance of your smile. Implants are also a great option for patients that struggle with loose or poor fitting dentures. Implant supported dentures, sometimes known as anchored dentures, provide more stable support and eliminate gaps and shifting.
Unlike fillings or crowns that are bonded to the tooth, dental implants are placed into the jawbone. Like the root of a natural tooth, implants bond directly to the jaw bone. After administering a local anaesthetic, the doctor will gently place the implant into the jaw bone below the gum line. The jawbone must then heal for 3-6 months, after which a permanent artificial tooth is created to fit on top of the implant. This artificial tooth will look, feel and function just like your natural tooth. As time passes, your jaw bone and gums will continue to grow around the implant, providing extra stability and a very natural appearance.
Our doctors are trained to assess whether or not a dental implant is the right choice for you and your smile. Contact us today and we will set up a consultation, listen to your concerns and explain your options.
