Dentures that rest on the gums have a long history in dentistry. But a revolution is taking place, and these traditional dentures are no longer the only option. At Wetaskiwin Family Dental in Wetaskiwin, we offer state-of-the-art, implant-supported dentures.
Dental implants are titanium posts that are inserted into your jaw. Within a few months, the post fused with the bone. This forms a rock-solid foundation for a replacement tooth.
One implant can support one artificial tooth. Multiple implants can support a dental bridge or full dental arch.
Dental implants provide the following benefits:
- Stability. Implants don’t move around in your mouth.
- Form and Function. Implants look and function like natural teeth.
- Like a New Root. Dental implants mimic a natural tooth root, promoting healthy bone.
- Bone Retention. The implant prevents bone recession and stimulates blood circulation.
- Comfort. No gum irritation.
- Appearance. Get your smile back!
Before you can get a dental implant, we have to make sure you’ve got enough healthy bone to support it. Even if you have lost bone mass due to the recession, though, a bone graft can stimulate new bone growth. In a matter of months, you should have enough to support the implants.
