Calgary Dental Implants

Your teeth were designed to last for life, but what happens if they don’t?


Heavily restored, decayed or traumatized teeth may become non-restorable. At this point, patients may require tooth extraction. Calgary patients have several options when it comes to restoring their smile.

Why is it important to replace missing teeth?

Missing teeth can negatively affect:

  • Your overall health
  • Your appearance
  • Your self-esteem
  • Your chewing ability
  • The health and alignment of your existing teeth

Because of this, our Calgary dentists always recommend a dental implant or other tooth replacement option.

Dental Implants: Calgary Dentist Dr. Korol's Overview

There are many restoration options at our clinic in Calgary. Dental implants, however, are the most natural, predictable way to replace a missing tooth.

After a tooth extraction, Calgary patients often opt for dental implants because they are a substitute for the roots of missing teeth. They are placed under the gum line and into the jawbone. These implants act as an anchor for a replacement tooth, bridge or removable denture.

Dental Implants:

  • Feel and function like a natural tooth
  • Have been proven more long lasting than bridges and partial dentures for replacing missing teeth
  • Can last a lifetime with proper care
  • Dental implants help protect and maintain the jawbone

What Are The Benefits Of Dental Implants? 

Dentists at our clinic see four key benefits to dental implants.

Dental Implants:

  1. Maintain jaw health
  2. Don’t decay
  3. Don’t require neighboring teeth to be ground down
  4. Are permanent and fixed

1. Dental Implants Maintain Jaw Health

If a tooth is removed and not replaced, the surrounding jawbone begins to shrink and wear down over time because the bone is no longer in function. Without healthy teeth and bone structure, your lips, cheeks, and eyes can sag and appear wrinkled. Implants maintain the surrounding jawbone and maintain a youthful-looking facial appearance.  

2. Dental Implants Don’t Decay

Cavities cannot occur on a dental implant or implant crown. However, that doesn’t mean that you can skip your Calgary dental exams. Routine check ups at your dentist will help ensure the gums and bone surrounding the implant stay healthy for years to come

3. Your Calgary Dentist Won’t Need To Alter The Neighboring Teeth

We always notify our patients in Calgary that dental bridges and partial dentures often require the grinding away of healthy tooth structure. This grinding is done on either side of the missing teeth to replace the tooth or teeth that are missing. Dental implants do not require damaging or grinding away the neighboring teeth. They also help prevent neighboring teeth from shifting and becoming crooked or misaligned.

4. Permanent Dentures Let You Speak and Eat With Ease

Partial dentures can shift and move, causing slurred speech or lisping. They can also alter impair your ability to taste, chew and enjoy your food. Permanent, non-removable restorations allow you to eat, smile, laugh and speak without worry. Enjoy life without worrying about your teeth! With help from a dentist in Calgary, dental implants can help improve your quality of life.
