Tooth Implant Dentistry In Wetaskiwin
For those missing even one tooth, the gap isn’t actually one of the major problems. What’s of far greater concern is the bone loss that inevitably follows tooth loss. At our practice, we solve the problems associated with this bone loss by offering dental implants as our restorative tooth option of choice. Dental implants fused to the jawbone can preserve bone, improve function, and enhance psychological well-being.
What is a Dental Implant?
Implants are special surgical grade titanium posts that are created with precise specifications for your mouth. These posts function as synthetic tooth roots and can fuse directly with your jawbone the same way a natural tooth root does. A tooth implant provides support for your jawbone, and prevents bone deterioration. When we combine a dental implant with a beautiful, porcelain crown in Wetaskiwin, we can create a perfect, artificial tooth replacement.
The Implant Dentistry Process
- Your implant will be manufactured in a strictly sterile environment.
- Once the implant is ready, we will place the implant into the jawbone right below the gum surface. Over time, as your smile heals, the bone will bond to the post in a process called osseointegration, forming a secure foundation.
- After your mouth has had an appropriate amount of time to heal, Dr. Mahoney will use that foundation to attach the abutment and crown, creating a perfect replacement tooth that is both beautiful and completely functional.
At our office near Leduc and Camrose, we have the skill and experience to both place and restore the implant. You won’t have to worry about going to different places or different surgeons for each step of the procedure. The entire procedure can be performed at our office for your convenience by a team that you trust. We utilize CT scanner technology to determine if a candidate is right for the procedure and to accurately place the implants.
