19 Mar Why We Can’t Stop Smiling – Dental Implants
If you are facing tooth loss or are already missing teeth, we have an excellent solution for you! Dental implants artificially replace an entire tooth, and one huge advantage of this treatment is the protective effect on your jawbone, preventing further bone loss.
What Are Dental Implants?
Implants consist of a small titanium screw or post, precisely placed into your jawbone during a short surgical procedure. Once the implant is inserted, it begins to heal and integrate with your jawbone, a process that takes between three and six months to complete. After the implant has fully healed, it provides a strong anchorage point for your new artificial tooth.
A Versatile Treatment
Here at Lethbridge Dental Clinic, we can use dental implants to support a single crown, while multiple implants can support a bridge, including full-arch bridges. It’s also possible to use dental implants to secure dentures as the implants have special attachments allowing the denture to be clipped firmly in place.
Nowadays, dental implants are frequently regarded as the gold standard for restoring missing teeth, and they have an extremely high success rate. We only use the highest quality implant components, and they are placed using the very latest techniques.
