Dental Implants – A Long Term Solution
Do you need quality and affordable dental implants in Grande Prairie and the surrounding areas? Losing teeth is the last thing you would want. The problem is that some situations that cause tooth loss are not in your ability to control. Besides gum disease, you can also lose your tooth due to cavities, physical injury, or trauma. Other diseases and risk factors like diabetes, smoking, poor nutrition, arthritis, and hypertension can also cause tooth loss.
Missing or broken teeth can make you self-conscious about your smile, and it can also affect some of the people you will interact with in your life. If not taken care of, a broken or missing tooth can cause bad breath, gingivitis, and a plethora of other issues. Besides being a cosmetic issue, teeth loss can also affect the function of your mouth. It is vital to address the issue quickly to avoid permanent damage, periodontal disease, gum recession, and bone loss.
You do not have to converse or smile weirdly or feel self-conscious about your smile when all you need do is to contact a leading dental implant specialist in Grande Prairie such as Dr. Gregory Broyde of West Grande Prairie Dental.
You can smile and eat your favorite food again when you take advantage of our dental implant services in Grande Prairie.
Made from titanium posts and fused with to the bone, dental implants replicate the roots of the teeth. They are placed surgically into the bone to ensure they stop at the height of your gum line.
You should allow the site healing for three months for the lower jaw and four months for the upper jaw. It is advisable to let the site heal for six months if bone grafting was performed.
After healing, we will proceed to the next part of the implant, which is the crown. The crown can either be cemented or screwed.
