Dental Implants

Your Downtown Calgary Choice for Dental Implants!

If you have one or more missing teeth, and are looking for a long-term aesthetic solution for replacing them, Canterra Dental is here to help! With dental implants, you can achieve the smile you have always dreamed of.

What is a dental implant?

Made of titanium or ceramic, dental implants are small and sturdy screw devices that are surgically implanted within the jawbone where the roots of the missing tooth once were. They provide retention or support, ultimately providing the foundation, or solid base, for the artificial tooth replacement. After the completion of the healing period, they are fitted with a dental crown or bridge, thereby completing the restoration. They feel, look and function just like your natural teeth, allowing you to smile, eat and speak with greater confidence.
