Denture Implants in Calgary

Denture implants are a natural-looking and successful alternative to traditional dentures. They are a long-lasting solution for patients with missing teeth due to age, injury and/or gum disease.

How are denture implants different from regular dentures?

While a regular denture rests on your gum, denture implants are made up of one or more replacement teeth connected to an implant in the jaw.

At Future Smiles, we offer FREE consultations, in-home visits, high-quality, competitively priced denture implants, and flexible financing options to help you get the healthy, beautiful smile you deserve!

Benefits of Denture Implants

Are you unhappy with the performance of your existing dentures? Denture implants can offer many incredible advantages over more traditional tooth replacement options including:

  • a more natural look, feel and function
  • no more movement, slippage or need for messy adhesives
  • no more sore spots
  • improved chewing and speaking ability
  • preservation of your jaw bone strength
  • improved oral health

 

Denture Implant Process

If you are considering implant-supported dentures, understanding the steps involved will help you know what to expect. All-in-all, it usually takes at least two surgeries and a minimum of 5 months to complete.

Step 1 - Initial Consultation

During the consultation and before the tooth implants, impressions and x-rays are taken so that models can be created.

Step 2 - Tooth Implants

Over the span of 2 surgeries, the tooth implants will be placed and allowed to fuse with your jawbone (3-6 months).

After the second surgery, abutments are placed on your implants. Your experienced denturist will make another impression to create a denture framework and artificial teeth.

Step 3 - Insertion

A metal bar is placed over the abutments and you will try on your artificial teeth. If you are happy with the fit, they will be permanently secured into place.

Your professional denturist will show you how to care for your new implant-supported dentures and possibly schedule follow up appointments to check your oral health.

However, there are some factors that may affect your candidacy including:
