If I’m losing multiple teeth, why shouldn’t I just get dentures?
Dentures are a great option for our patients who have lost most or all of their teeth. A denture is designed to fit over your palate, and it replaces an entire arch of missing teeth. Because it blocks the palate, however, your ability to taste and enjoy foods may be inhibited.
For our patients who are missing one or multiple teeth but still retain a good number of healthy teeth, we have other incredible options!
Dental implants are a great way to restore one or more missing teeth and also protect the health of your jawbone. An implant is surgically placed into your bone, and because it’s biocompatible, it integrates with your bone over time. This creates a firm foundation for your new tooth or dental prosthetic.
An implant crown is made of high-quality porcelain that is designed to closely mimic your natural tooth. You’ll be able to eat, chew, talk, and smile just as you were used to before your tooth loss. Dental implants can also be used to support prosthetics such as a partial denture or dental bridge, which can be used to restore multiple missing teeth.
Best of all, Dr. Crawford can guide you through implant dentistry here at Calgary Dental House from start to finish.
