Get High Quality Dental Implants At Dental Clinic In SW Calgary
As the name suggests, a dental implant is a replacement for your natural tooth and consists of a titanium screw instead of a tooth root. The screw is fixed into your jaw and provides a solid base on which to mount your replacement tooth.
A dental implant looks and performs like a normal tooth, which is why people have them for functional as well as cosmetic reasons. Look after them well, and dental implants have the potential to last for years.
Dental implants don’t come cheap. In fact, you can expect to pay anything from $3000 to $4500 for a single dental implant. And the price of a mouth-full of dental implants can vary to a similar degree. The price variations can be down to material costs and the state of the patient’s health, with diabetes and gum disease both affecting the cost of treatment.
The success of dental implants relies on the bonds that form between the artificial root and the surrounding bone tissue. The procedure uses titanium rods which are expensive, as are the artificial teeth that are used. All these materials impact the cost of the implants, as does the location of the implants and the structural integrity of the surrounding tissue. Bone or gum tissue grafts may also be required prior to dental implants, hence the wide variation in costs.
But the cosmetic and functional benefits of dental implants are clear, and the procedure can have benefits on the overall health structure of the jaw. Given the expense of dental implants, the Calgary dental care team at ADx can offer most patients finance agreements to help them afford to have dental implants in Calgary.
Can I Get A Dental Implant In Calgary?
As a responsible dental practice, ADx Dental cannot offer dental implants to patients who lack the healthy jawbone structure that’s essential for the procedure. Other patients may require a bone graft ahead of dental implants.
Dr Tran, a highly experienced Calgary SW dentist, will carry out a full examination of your mouth, using a 3D scan and your jaw and teeth. Molds will also be made of both your jaws to show their precise alignment. This will provide Dr Tran with the information he needs to decide whether or not you are suitable for dental implants and, if so, where the best place is in your jaw to place the implant/s.
If you get the go-ahead, Dr Tran will carry out the dental implant surgery in Calgary. You may need to wear dentures and follow a restricted diet to keep your implants in place.
3 to 6 months later, when your implant has bonded to your jaw, your artificial teeth will be put in place. Dental implants from ADx Dental are designed to be long-lasting and to look totally natural, giving you teeth that look great and function normally.
