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 and 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 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 Living Wellness Dental Northland, serving patients in Calgary, Airdrie, Canmore, Red Deer, and nearby Alberta communities, we offer “flapless” dental implants. Conventional implants require a surgical incision through the 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
