Providing Better Smiles to Calgary & nearby areas of Alberta
If you are missing one or more teeth, you may be eager to fill that gap with a dental implant. A dental implant is a great way to create a lasting solution to complete your smile – they maintain a 95% success rate if cared for properly. If you work with Calgary implant dentist Dr. Jennifer Silver, you can expect a dedicated and caring staff to help you through the dental implant process.
The first meeting you will have with Dr. Silver will help determine which type of dental implant is the right choice for you and whether your gums and jaw could support the implant. The next time you come in, you will undergo a quick surgical procedure to implant the anchor into your jawbone. This procedure usually is carried out in 15 minutes or less and involves conscious sedation. You will be awake for the procedure, but you most likely won’t remember it afterwards. Once the dental implant is inserted into your jaw, it will take several months for your jaw to heal. During this time, your jawbone will fuse with the implant, making it highly stable. After your jaw has completely healed, Dr. Silver will connect a titanium post, called an abutment, to the implant and attach a dental crown to the abutment. Your new prosthetic tooth will look and function just like your natural teeth, enabling you to eat whatever you like with a clear conscience. Please contact our Calgary office today to schedule your initial impant consultation at Southcentre Dental Clinic.
Dr. Silver graduated with a Doctor of Dental Surgery from the University of Melbourne, Australia. Dr. Silver believes in treating the whole patient and has a special interest in helping patients with TMJ pain and sleep Apnea.
