We have options to replace missing teeth or increase the retention of dentures, neither of which was an option just a few decades ago.
Airdrie Dental Implants
Restore Your Bite with Airdrie Dental Implants
If missing teeth are affecting your confidence, ability to chew or your bite, dental implants may be a suitable option for you. Dental implants can replace a single tooth, multiple teeth or be the support for prosthesis like dentures. At Yankee Valley Dental in Airdrie, Dr. Parsa will discuss with you all the options so that you are confident with your choice.
Just like a hip replacement where the surgeon uses titanium to replace a damaged hip, an implant is a titanium posts that mimics the root of a natural root. Depending on how you choose to restore dental implants, you can either get a crown on top or attach it to your full or partial dentures.
Dr. Parsa does the dental implant surgery right at our Yankee Valley Dental office under local anesthesia, or with sedation if you choose to get that option. The surgery is generally very comfortable for patients with little to no pain following the procedure. Dr. Parsa may suggest bone grafting to augment the jaw bone. This may be done at the time of the tooth replacement or at a later date.
There is a lot to consider when deciding if dental implants are the right option for you. It’s important that the rest of the mouth is healthy prior to choosing to have a dental implant. Dental implants can get bone loss around them just like teeth, and patients with gum disease or periodontitis must first get that disease under control to minimize the risk of losing the dental implant.
Dr. Parsa will spent a lot of time discussing your medical health to decide with you if dental implant is a suitable option for you.
Smoking can decrease the success rate of dental implants. If you are a smoker, it is highly recommended to consider cessation prior to getting dental implants. Diabetes can also be a factor in whether your dental implants integrate, however, if your diabetes is under control, you may still be a good candidate for dental implants.
Other systemic conditions that may affect the success of dental implants are autoimmune diseases.

Testimonial of Our Service
I saw Dr. Parsa to get my wisdom teeth removed when she was working in Calgary. I had been told by another general dentist that I have to see the specialist to get them out but put it off because it was hundreds of dollars just for the consultation. I was in soooo much pain when I saw Dr. Parsa and was so relieved when she was able to take them out for me. It saved me a lot of money since my insurance covered her fees. I also had sedation since I was really nervous about the procedure and don’t think I could have gone through it without. So grateful that she was able to help me out. I highly recommended Dr. Parsa anyone looking for a dentist!
