Providing Better Smiles to Calgary & nearby areas of Alberta

If you are missing any teeth and have made the decision to get dental implants, the next step for you is determining which type of dental implant is right for you. Here at Southcentre Dental Clinic in Calgary, Dr. Steven Cload and his team will work with you to figure out which type of dental implant would work best for you based on the number of teeth you have missing, as well as your jawbone structure.

Endosteal Implants

These implants are the most common form of dental implant. The procedure involves drilling an artificial titanium root into your jawbone, which anchors it securely. Once healed, a porcelain crown or bridge can be attached firmly to the root.

Subperiosteal Implants

If your jawbone structure is a little weaker and can’t support an artificial root drilled directly into the bone, a subperiosteal implant involves placing the implant so that it rests on top of the jawbone from which the porcelain crown or bridge can be attached to.

If you would like to learn more about your options for dental implants, Dr. Cload and his team at Southcentre Dental Clinic would love to set up an appointment to talk with you.
