Those who have missing teeth will find that there are several options available to restore dental function, maintain dental structure, and achieve a radiant smile. Dental implants are a durable, long-lasting tooth root replacement solution often employed by Dr. Robertson and Drs. Cameron and David MacLean. At Living Wellness Dental Dorchester we take steps to ensure that selected products react well to your physiology. We use latest technology to minimize oral trauma and set our clients in the Calgary, AB area on the road to speedy recovery. You will find, in speaking with the Living Wellness Dental Dorchester team, that titanium dental implants are a smart, affordable and popular choice.
Why is titanium used for implants?
Because implants are placed into the jaw’s bone, they need to be made out of a material with strength to stand up to the normal wear and tear of biting and grinding functions. Titanium implants have been proven to have the strength and durability needed for the job and, in most cases, they have been found to be biocompatible with the body. Taking steps to evaluate biocompatibility is critical as it ensures that the body will not react poorly to the implant, thereby increasing the likelihood of successful placement. Titanium is widely used in the medical world for other implant and bone replacements throughout the body and continues to be a safe, sturdy metal for the human body and its necessary functions.
Are titanium dental implants safe?
Absolutely! Our team at Living Wellness Dental Dorchester would never use materials in the smile that are unsafe for our clients. Titanium continues to be a popular choice for implants as it is biocompatible and has a low risk of rejection.
How does a dental implant work?
The dental implant itself is a small post-like object that is placed during oral surgery into the jawbone. Leading-edge technologies are used at Living Wellness Dental Dorchester to increase precision and decrease dental trauma. The implant(s) is placed where the natural tooth (or teeth) was lost. In situations where patients are obtaining implant-retained dentures, the implants will be placed strategically along the dental arch. Placement of the implants, in addition to the application of wholistic regenerative materials (platelet rich fibrin) stimulates the process of osseointegration (bone growth) which solidifies around the implant and holds it in place. Solutions for missing teeth include:
- Dental bridges
- Dental crowns
The type of restoration will vary depending on the patient’s needs.
