Dental Implants

Your NW Calgary Choice for Dental Implants!

If you have one or more missing teeth, you are putting the rest of your teeth under threat too. A permanent and durable solution to tooth loss, dental implants might be the answer. Montgomery Dental Centre is pleased to offer the convenience of dental implants for all your oral health needs.

What are Dental Implants?

A dental implant is an artificial metal post or screw that is placed in the bone where the missing tooth or teeth were. It acts as a replacement for the natural root of your tooth and is surgically fixed into the jaw to provide a solid base for the artificial tooth replacement. To complete the restoration, it is then fitted with a dental crown or bridge. It is a lifelong investment that will provide strength and protection where the missing tooth once was, and allow you to eat well and maintain optimal oral health.

What is the Process of Getting a Dental Implant?

Montgomery Dental Centre is committed to providing you with a safe, secure, and meticulous process, to ensure that your dental procedure is done properly.

We first remove the damaged tooth, to make way for the dental implants. We then secure the artificial post into your gums and send you home. You will return to us in 3-6 months after a process called osseointegration has occurred. This means that your body accepts the post and the post is strongly rooted within the tooth bone.

At your second appointment, once the artificial metal post is confirmed secure in your jawbone, we take an impression similar to that of a regular crown. It is sent to our laboratory, where a custom made tooth-shaped crown is made. This will be screwed onto or cemented to the artificial post. That’s it – your tooth has now been successfully replaced with your permanent solution dental crown!

When are Dental Implants Used?

Dental Implants can be used individually, or to support a number of dental prostheses, including implant-supported dental bridges, partial dentures, and complete dentures.

We offer Implant-Supported Overdentures, which help denture wearers who are having issues with the stability of their dentures, especially lower dentures. We can provide options whereby multiple implants can support the denture and provide a more stable platform for the denture, which makes it easier to enjoy meals, and limits the use of dental adhesive which might be irritating to gums.

For those who need multiple teeth, we can provide options where multiple artificial posts are placed strategically to best support the new teeth.

Benefits of Dental Implants

  • Significant improvement in the overall quality of life
  • The closest option to your natural teeth; they can look, feel and function just like your own teeth
  • Can improve the overall appearance of your smile
  • They maintain, or realign, facial structure and profile, and preserve bone
  • They are easy to clean and do not decay
  • They help preserve adjacent natural teeth
  • Implant-supported crowns and bridges have a longer functioning life than conventional crowns and bridges placed over the natural tooth structure
  • They help to prevent the appearance of premature aging due to bone loss
  • Eliminate embarrassing denture slippage, since the implants ‘anchor’ the dentures
  • They are cost-effective when taking into account the functioning life of the implant
  • The success rate is very high – in the 95% range. With proper care and good dental hygiene, it’s rare that implants will fail
