Dental Implants in St. Albert

While crowns and bridges offer a temporary solution to replace a missing tooth, consider a dental implant as a permanent replacement that restores the look and functionality of your tooth.

What Is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant is a dental restoration that uses a titanium post surgically inserted into the jawbone to serve as an artificial tooth root. This post is then topped with an abutment that protrudes above the gumline, providing a secure anchor for a dental crown that replaces the missing tooth.

Why Get a Dental Implant?

Gaps in between your teeth can cause the surrounding teeth to shift, affecting your biting function and resulting in the chipping and cracking of the teeth. Dental implants offer a permanent solution to restore functionality for a healthy and beautiful smile.
