Whether you’re missing one tooth or an entire row of teeth, you’re likely looking for an appealing way to restore your smile. Many of our patients in Calgary and other areas of Alberta have found that dental implants are an ideal choice for tooth replacement.
But what characteristics make a patient suitable for implant dentistry? Our Alberta dentists will carefully evaluate you for the following:
- Good dental health and hygiene
- Freedom from gum disease
- Enough bone density in your jaw to support an implant
- No presence of chronic health issues that could lead to post-operative complications, such as diabetes
A comprehensive evaluation at our office in Calgary is the first step to determine whether or not you’re a candidate for dental implants. Our dentists will assess the health of your teeth and gums and potentially use digital X-rays, CT scan or other imaging to get a full picture of your entire mouth.
Implant dentistry does require oral surgery – to qualify for implants, you will need to be healthy enough to undergo the procedure. If your tooth loss wasn’t caused by gum disease or another systemic health problem, dental implants could be an ideal option for restoring your smile.
To find out if dental implants are the perfect tooth replacement solution for you, please contact Aesthetic Dental Studio or call 403-543-4600 today to schedule your initial evaluation. Our dentists serve patients in Calgary and communities throughout Alberta.
