Biological and holistic dentists offer “flapless” implant restoration for patients in Calgary, Ab
Biological and holistic dentists, Kindal Robertson, DDS, and James Redd, DDS, at Wellness Dental in Calgary, AB, believe in helping our patients to live well. Our approach to dental care is to treat the whole person, addressing physical, mental, and oral health. Combining biological and holistic dentistry into our family and general dental care, we seek the safest, least invasive, and most effective treatment plans, which are custom-tailored to each patient’s unique needs and goals.
Drs. Robertson and Redd focus on creating a partnership with our patients, emphasizing prevention, education, and lifelong wellness, and using only biocompatible materials and procedures that reduce the risk of future adverse reactions. We are a mercury-free practice and offer porcelain and composite materials and gentle procedures that interact naturally with your body. In addition, we provide reactivity testing to ensure that your body’s specific sensitivity to certain dental products is identified and addressed.
At times in life, events may occur that require surgical restoration or reconstructive intervention, such as the loss of your teeth, whether caused by decay, gum disease, injury, or other damage. Tooth loss can be a traumatic experience, with a profound impact on your appearance, confidence, and self-esteem, as well as potentially affecting your overall health. The roots of your teeth provide stability and strength to the bones and tissues surrounding them. As teeth are lost, remaining teeth may shift and loosen as the bone structure weakens.
Dental implants replace the roots of missing teeth and look and feel like your natural teeth, improving speech, eating, and comfort, while reinforcing the bone foundation and keeping the rest of your teeth in place. Implants are surgically placed into the bone, which fuses to the inserted post. Implants may be used to secure dentures and other prosthetic teeth.
At Wellness Dental, serving patients in Calgary, Airdrie, Canmore, Red Deer, and nearby Alberta communities, we offer “flapless” dental implants. Conventional implants require a surgical incision through gum tissue into the bone which may cause tissue and bone loss. Flapless dental implant surgery uses a less invasive and less traumatic precision tool, called a tissue punch.
Using highly advanced technology, flapless dental implant surgery has significant advantages over conventional surgical procedures, such as:
- Minimally invasive
- Smaller incision
- Decreased patient discomfort
- Less surgical time and reduced recovery time
- Less need for sutures
- Immediate “loading” of the implant
