Maintain a Healthy Smile with Dental Implants in Edmonton
Even if you practice excellent dental hygiene, you may have to repair or replace a damaged tooth someday. Accidents happen to everyone, and sometimes accidents break teeth. Luckily, in these situations, a crown or a dental implant can restore your smile. Come to the dentists at Dederich Dental Clinic when you need dental implants or crowns in Edmonton.
If a tooth's damage extends to its roots, patients can choose to replace the entire damaged tooth with a new, natural-looking dental implant. Dental implants work well for patients with healthy gums and jawbones that give the implant a secure setting.
A dental implant has two parts: a titanium root and a crown, which looks like a normal tooth. Our office has both a periodontist and a general dentist on staff, so we can install the base of the implant and put the implant's crown in place, all in one convenient location.
If the tooth has less extensive damage, a dentist may recommend a crown to cover the existing tooth and prevent further damage. Crowns work well for teeth that have cracks, that appear discoloured, or need a repair more extensive than a filling.
To install the crown, the dentist files down the existing tooth, takes an impression, and creates a permanent crown to place over the existing tooth. After the dentist affixes the permanent crown to the tooth, it looks and feels like the natural tooth it replaced.
