The dental implant procedure will begin with a candidacy evalutation from Dr. Chahal at our Calgary location. Once your candidacy is determined your dental implant surgery will be scheduled. Whether you are having a single tooth replaced, several teeth replaced, or undergoing the procedure for dental implants dentures known as All-On-4. Calgary Smile Clinic in Calgary will go the extra mile to ensure your treatment is comfortable and successful.
In order to place the tooth implant, a tiny hole is drilled in the jawbone called a pilot hole. This hole is then used to place a small titanium screw which will serve as the anchor for the implant. The screw is covered with a temporary dental crown and allowed to fully integrate into the jawbone. This healing time is known as osseointegration.
Once the surgery has healed, a the permanent crown is placed and will be virtually indistinguishable from your other teeth. You can eat normally, enjoy talking and laughing with confidence and smile bigger than ever!
