What is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is a small titanium screw that replaces the root of a missing tooth. It is inserted into the jawbone and serves as an anchor for an artificial replacement tooth to be attached. They can be used to replace a single tooth, multiple teeth (bridges) or to secure and support dentures. Dental implants are a means of replacing missing teeth.
Optimum Dentistry offers its patients a method to replace one or more missing teeth. Dental implants avoid involving other teeth to support restorations such as bridges.
Our Doctors work with surgeons in Calgary to place the dental implants. After healing has taken place, we fabricate the crown or bridge to be placed on top of the dental implant.
