Dental Implants Restorations Procedures Calgary

Dental Implants Calgary

Dental Implants CalgaryAn alternative to a bridge or traditional dentures, dental implants replace missing teeth and ensure that your facial contours and jaw bone are preserved after tooth loss. Implants can give you back the confidence to eat what you like, laugh when it’s funny, and smile for no reason at all. Tiny titanium posts placed in your jaw bone mimic your natural tooth root wherever teeth are missing. Your bone will surround and bond with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for the rest of the tooth. A crown will be placed on top of the post for a natural looking, completely functional artificial tooth. Come to Sierra Dental in Calgary for dental implants and change your smile!

At Sierra Dental we have been helping our patients achieve beautiful smiles for more than 30 years. A great smile is a result of proper daily care, regular cleanings, orthodontics, and cosmetic procedures, such as dental implants. Let us help you create a great smile because of our passion for dentistry, experience, and personal care.

Dental Implants ProcedureIf you have experienced tooth loss, schedule an appointment with us to talk about options for maintaining your smile. Remember, implants are the most permanent and natural option to replace missing teeth, and only require two procedures over the course of three months. The first step is to place the implant in the bone. After this surgery, the patient goes home to heal and allow the titanium post to adhere to the bone. Once it’s strong and secures a dental crown is placed on top and you have a beautiful replacement tooth. Our team of skilled professionals can help guide you through the healing process and make sure you understand how to best care for your new teeth. Call our office today to learn more about your implant options, or to schedule a consultation.

FAQs

What to eat after a dental implant?

You don’t have to stick to an only-water diet for two weeks:



  • Dairy products are great when you’re adhering to a soft food diet. If you are lactose intolerant opt for milk alternatives like almond, soy or coconut.

  • If dairy is not your thing, you can get protein elsewhere from nut butter, eggs, soft fish, oatmeal, oat bran and cream of wheat.

  • Do not forget to eat your fruits and vegetables. You do not have to puree everything but make sure that whatever fruits and veggies you do eat are soft enough that they require little to no chewing.

  • Other staples of a soft food diet are baked or mashed potatoes, beans, rice, soft bread, applesauce, stew, and soup.


Immediately following your implantation surgery, especially if you have been placed under sedation, you should replenish any fluids that have been lost. Drink cool liquids and avoid using a straw.

What food should I avoid after a dental implant?



  • Any food that needs to be thoroughly chewed like steak needs to be avoided while you’re on your soft food diet.

  • Food that could cause pain to your gums, like chips, popcorn, nuts, and shells should not be consumed while you recover from your implant surgery.

  • Toast is a big no-no in the two weeks that follow your dental implant surgery. All bread consumed must be soft so as to not hurt your gums and the roof of your mouth.

  • Watch out for baby food. You don’t have to avoid it completely but the sugar and fat content of store-bought baby food is often very high.


Stay away from anything carbonated and food and drinks that are extremely hot.

Can teeth extraction and dental implants be done simultaneously?

Teeth extraction and dental implants can be done simultaneously if you understand the procedures and have the right dentist to apply them. Consult with your dental professional to determine the best options for your needs.
