Is a dental implant the best tooth replacement option for me?
There are several solutions to replace missing teeth, including:
Dental implants offer the most effective results to replace your missing teeth. However, in order to be a candidate for implants, you must have enough bone structure in your jaw to support the implant. At your initial consultation, Calgary dentists Dr. Sahra Kanji and Dr. Mehbs Ali will evaluate your oral health to determine whether dental implants are right for you.
How much experience does Dr. Ali and Dr. Kanji have placing dental implants?
Dr. Ali has been helping patients in Calgary get high quality dental implants since 1997. He regularly participates in continuing education courses to ensure that he remains current on dental implant procedures. Dr. Ali regularly achieves beautiful implant results that provide you with a prosthetic tooth that will be just as strong as your natural teeth. Please have a look at some of our implant images in the before and after gallery to get a better idea of the outcome you can expect to achieve.
What are the benefits of dental implants compared with other methods of tooth replacement?
Dental implants are the only restoration that provides a permanent solution to replace your missing tooth. The surgical implantation process ensures an unparalleled level of stability for the replacement tooth. Dental implants are regarded as the ultimate way to replace a tooth due to the fact that your prosthetic tooth looks and functions almost exactly like your natural teeth.
Are there any risks involved with dental implant surgery?
There are risks to any type of dental surgery, and dental implants are no exception. There is the chance that the false titanium tooth root may not fuse correctly with the jawbone. Infection of the gum tissue is also a possibility. Some dental implant patients have experienced loosening of their dental implant and sinus issues due to disruption of the sinus cavity. However, Dr. Kanji and Dr. Ali use guided implant technology to help minimize these risks.
Keep in mind that only a very small percentage of dental implant procedures are unsuccessful. To lower your risks, please follow Dr. Kanji and Dr. Ali’s pre-and post-operative instructions and refrain from smoking. We only accept dental implant patients who have healthy immune systems and sufficient bone density to guard against adverse effects.
