Overview: Dental Implants are the Cadillac of replacement teeth. From a few missing teeth to a full replacement, Denturists at Future Smiles Clinic in Calgary, AB offer this gold standard in dentistry. But before you get that million-dollar smile... what EXACTLY are Dental Implants?
 

_____________

 

Unlike regular dentures, dental implants are the closest you can get to real teeth and they are custom designed for each individual's unique mouth. Implants are securely locked into the jaw so you can throw caution to the wind and not have to worry about loose dentures, the fear of dentures breaking, or any embarrassing moments involving your dentures falling out.

 

The Mayans may have been the first to use dental implants but the Future Smiles Denture Clinic in SW Calgary has perfected the procedure! While the process is not a one-stop visit you certainly don’t have to clear your calendar for months! After a consultation with your denturist, plans and a schedule will be drawn up for your new teeth. The number of implants will vary from patient to patient, from a complete overhaul to just a few missing teeth, dental implants is a viable option for many dental needs.

 

When it’s time to take your seat at denturist office, the titanium posts are surgically placed and fused into your jawbone and the replacement teeth are then screwed onto the ends of the posts. And viola! You’ll have a brand new set of teeth.

 

How Do I Care For My Dentures?

With Dental Implants comes a great smile, and with a great smile comes great responsibility! They may look and feel like real teeth but this means they will also need the same care as real teeth.

What’s on the list?

  • Brushing
  • Flossing
  • Regular check-ups with your dentist.

 

What’s off the list?

  • Relines
  • Rebase
  • Repairing broken dentures.

 

Bottom Line: Regular dentures need to be replaced every 5-7 years and require adjustments that make dental implants cost effective in the long run. The investment in denture implants compounded daily will pay off with a great smile, confidence and comfort! Go ahead and bite into as many apples as you want and with impunity!
