Providing Better Smiles to Calgary & nearby areas of Alberta
The dental implant procedure, like every medical procedure that involves even small alterations to the human body, carries with it certain risks. In the case of dental implants, infection is one of the most common complications. Dr. Silver will walk you through the procedure at your initial consultation and discuss with you potential risks of implant placement and how to minimise the risk. But there is a risk of infection during the procedure, as there is during any surgical procedure.
Further, dental implants are vulnerable to the same risks of gum disease and infection as your normal teeth. That’s why basic dental hygiene is so important. Brush and floss twice a day, and come to Dr. Silver for frequent, regularly scheduled dental check-ups and cleanings. If you’re an Alberta resident and you think you might be a good candidate for dental implants, please contact the Southcentre Dental Clinic today.
