Have Missing Teeth?
Dental Implants could be a great way to fill the gap.

Just like with dental veneers, the lifespan of dental implants can vary by many factors including:
·         Dental hygiene
·         Quality of care 
·         The materials of the implants 
To understand how long a dental implant last, it's important to know about the 3 key parts an implant is comprised of:
1. The implant: Usually a titanium screw
2. An abutment: A metal post that connects the replacement tooth to the implant
3. The crown: A porcelain resin or metal tooth that replaces your missing tooth

Among these parts, the titanium implant itself can last a lifetime with great care, regular dental check-ups and strong oral hygiene. The crown itself can have a lifespan of 10–15 years or beyond with consistent and careful maintenance over time. 

This includes a routine of:
· Brushing your teeth twice a day for a minimum of 2 minutes
· With a fluoride toothpaste!
· Flossing at least once a day
· Getting professional cleanings every 6 months

This can also include habits such as:
· Avoiding exerting a lot of pressure on hard foods with your implanted tooth
· Respecting that your teeth are not mechanical tools!
· Opening things with your teeth can be very harmful to your teeth and jaw, dental implants not.
· Finding a solution to bruxism, if you're prone to grinding your teeth at night or during the day as a stress response. Recognize and potentially find a solution to clenching

Dental implants may be a great way to fill the gap

dental implants dentist airdrie

Do you have a missing tooth and want to know what could replace it? You may have heard of implants but are not sure if they are right for you. Dental implants are an alternative to partial or complete dentures or dental bridges.

They replace a tooth’s roots and act as a support for an artificial replacement tooth. The dental implant performs the role of an anchor by holding the replacement tooth in the right place.

Would I make a suitable candidate for dental implants?

If your general health is good, your gums are healthy and you have sufficient bone in your jaw to fix an implant, dental implants Airdrie could be a very suitable replacement tooth option. If we find that your jawbone has reduced in size or normal development has not taken place, you could opt to have a bone graft to strengthen the bone in the area of the missing tooth.

Dental implants are not the only option for missing teeth and you may prefer to choose traditional dentures instead. Dental implants are an alternative to dentures, not a replacement for them. We can discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the various procedures that are available and make a suggestion of what we think may be suitable in your circumstances.

The process of fitting a dental implant is no experiment

dental implant procedure airdrie

Here at You First Dental, we will examine your mouth carefully and take x-rays of your jaw, head and teeth to discover if you are a candidate for dental implants Airdrie. If you go ahead with dental implants, we will fit a dental implant beneath your gum tissue and into your jawbone.

As the gum tissue goes through the healing process the implant will begin to bond with the surrounding bone and attach itself to the gum. This process may take many months.

As soon as the gum tissue has successfully healed, we will then attach an abutment to the dental implant, which is a post that links the new tooth to the implant. We will then fit a replacement tooth made of artificial material and which is attached to the abutment.

If a number of teeth need replacing, a fixed dental bridge or crown can be firmly attached to dental implants. This is a dental restoration that plays the role of one or more lost teeth by extending to an area that for some reason or another lacks teeth. The bridge is fixed firmly in the correct place by dental implants, which have already been placed on both sides of the missing teeth or tooth.

Looking forward to the day you can fill that gap?

A missing tooth or missing teeth can be more than just a nuisance. A replacement that is strong enough to resist the normal biting, chewing and grinding while eating is an attractive prospect. It makes sense to be fully informed on what is available so that you can make the choice that suits you best.

When you make an appointment at You First Dental here in Airdrie, your missing tooth and surrounding mouth will be examined carefully and we can then discuss the options available to you to replace that annoying gap in your mouth. We provide free consultations as well as financing options.

Dental Implants FAQ's

There are three common types of dental implants that you can choose from Endosteal, subperiosteal, and zygomatic. Endosteal is the safest and most common, followed by subperiosteal, and then zygomatic being the last and most complex. It is rarely used.
On average they can last 25 years. Taking good care of your oral hygiene will make dental implants last longer than that.
There is no exact cost since every patients needs differ but on average the cost of dental implant varies between $3000 and $5000. This usually includes crown placement, the post and abutment.
