Replacing Missing Teeth in Okotoks
Dental implants are a comprehensive way to replace missing teeth. The implant posts stabilize prosthetic teeth while providing necessary support for the bone to remain strong and functional. This procedure prevents resorption, a process that shrinks the jaw bone to compensate for the loss of tooth roots.
Dental implants can be provided to support the following restorations:
Single-unit crowns can be placed for patients missing a tooth. Patients undergoing an extraction are also able to receive an implant directly after the procedure at our office.
Multi-unit bridges replace up to a short row of teeth using as little as two dental implant posts as anchors. This process preserves the integrity of healthy teeth while providing necessary support for the restoration.
Implant-supported dentures replace an entire arch of teeth using either four or six implant posts that are strategically placed to support an entire denture. Our patients have the benefit of choosing between removable and fixed implant-supported dentures to fit their lifestyle.
How We Perform Implant Placement & Restoration
Biocompatible titanium implant posts are placed into the vacant space and fuse with the bone to act as the tooth’s root. Attached to this is an abutment that angles and connects the prosthetic replacement to complete the restoration and return functionality to our patients' bite.
We use high-quality tools and materials that provide both aesthetic and functional benefits. Our process involves utilizing CBCT scanners and digital x-rays to map out your smile and generate a treatment plan that fits your unique needs. The guided implant placement approach our dentists use for select cases makes for a procedure that is as accurate as it is efficient.
Therapeutic use of platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) after placement speeds up healing, encourages faster integration of the dental post, and allows implant restoration to occur sooner.
To be eligible for dental implants, patients must have adequate bone density and good-standing health. We offer preparatory treatment, such as bone grafting, ridge augmentation, and sinus lifts to allow some patients who would otherwise be ineligible receive dental implants safely.
