Dental Implants in North Edmonton
A dental implant restores a lost tooth to look, feel, fit, and function like a natural tooth.
What are dental implants?
A dental implant is a high-tech replacement tooth mimicking the whole tooth structure. It is a metal screw device surgically inserted into the jawbone and acts as an anchor for an artificial tooth called a crown.
Who Might Need A Dental Implant?
Implants are often the solution if you have one or more missing teeth and damaged or rotting teeth that may be irreparable. The jawbone can deteriorate when a tooth is lost or pulled and not replaced. Dental implants will maintain a healthy bite, keeping each tooth firmly in place while supporting a healthy jawbone and preventing bone deterioration.
If you are self-conscious about the appearance of your smile, a dental implant will help with that. Your ability to eat, smile, and laugh without experiencing discomfort, stress, or holding back is crucial and will significantly influence your life as a whole.
Benefits Of Dental Implants
- Natural look: You will enjoy your time without worrying about your teeth, as the implant will retain your natural face shape and smile.
- Long-term solution: Dental implants may need periodic adjustments but can last a lifetime when properly placed and taken care of.
- Strengthening the bone: Due to a lack of stimulation, the jawbone in the area left by a missing tooth deteriorates. An implant stimulates natural bone growth and prevents it from weakening.
Dental Implant Restoration
Types Of Dental Implant Restoration:
Dental crown- This is the most common implant restoration. The crown is placed over the implant crown with special tools that screw it in place.
A dental bridge- A bridge fills the cavity caused by several lost teeth in a row. You may replace multiple teeth with only one or two implants to support a dental bridge. A complete implant-supported bridge is an arch of upper or lower teeth attached to four or more implants.
Implant denture- Implant-supported dentures are comfortable, stable, and easily removed.

How It Feels
Getting a metal implant into your jaw may seem uncomfortable, but modern techniques have made the process much more tolerable. To ensure that the surgical procedure causes you no discomfort, we will provide a local anesthetic to numb your mouth.
Our modern dental equipment helps us to insert implants precisely and with little tissue disruption. You will have less pain and downtime during recovery. You could feel some discomfort from having to keep your mouth open for brief periods, but that’s about it.
Following the operation, it is common to suffer some swelling, pain, and maybe bruising in the following hours. Fortunately, the discomfort isn’t severe and can be dealt with easily. We will provide you with detailed guidelines for alleviating pain even before the anesthesia wears off. Within a week, you should experience less pain at the surgical implant site.
The Dental Implant Process
Fixing the implant
Before your dentist can securely put a final restoration, the implant must recover for a few months. Your dentist may make a temporary restoration for you during the healing phase.
