There are many benefits to receiving a dental implant. One of the most important reasons that people choose to get implants is that they look more natural than dentures. In fact, when you are working with an Edmonton dentist who has great experience with dental implants, it can be very difficult to tell the difference between an implant and a real tooth.

This can provide the patient with confidence when speaking in front of other people, and just interacting with others overall. If you are someone with dentures, dental implants can help you also.

A skilled Edmonton dentist will place implants so that you can easily put your dentures in and take them out. The benefits of having implants holding your dentures in place is they will not slip around in your mouth. You will have the ability to eat and speak with confidence because of the implants being directly inserted into your jawbone.


It is not a short process getting dental implants, but the overall benefit outweighs the time period that it takes for proper fitting and the osseointegration of the implants.

A dental implant to replace the tooth provides more comforted convenience than a partial denture or bridge. With a titanium implant and porcelain crown, you can go about your life as usual, once everything has healed.

You care for your dental implant the same way you care for your natural teeth. Brushing and flossing every day is part of the routine, as well as regular checkups with the tooth doctor.

The overall cost difference between dentures and implants is significant. Dentures often need to be replaced and they can cost several thousand dollars. With a properly maintained dental implant, you should never have to replace it at all.

Even though you may spend a couple thousand dollars on an implant treatment, over your lifetime this works out to pennies per day. When you consider the benefits of having a solid dental implant, this is a very small price to pay for improved confidence, and overall health.

Edmonton Dentist | supporting overall health

Getting a dental implant is important for your overall health says the Edmonton dentist at the tooth doctor. More than just cosmetics, implants can help you maintain a healthy diet.

When someone has dentures, or partials, they lose much of their biting power. It is said that with dentures, people lose up to 80% of their bite power thus resulting in the inability to eat certain foods.

If you enjoy eating vegetables, fruits, nuts and other harder foods, you’ll find that will not enjoy them as much when you wear dentures.

Implants help you maintain your bite pressure so you can enjoy all the same foods that you always had. Crushing and pulverizing food is the first point indigestion for our bodies. That’s why it’s so important to maintain healthy teeth and gums.

The Edmonton dentist at the tooth doctor says “my goal for our patients is to provide a practical and conservative approach long-lasting dental health. We strive to save as many teeth as possible, for as long as possible, for as cheap as possible.”

We’ve all heard the tales of people losing their dentures when they sneeze or try and blow out candles on the birthday cake. This is very embarrassing and in some cases, can prevent people from wanting to go out in public.


Even if you have dentures, you can still benefit from having dental implants. A skilled Edmonton dentist will place implants in your job own and then apply locators to your dentures. These locators snap into your dental implants creating a firm fit.

No more sticky pastes or adhesives will be required to maintain your dentures position. You’ll be able to easily remove and replace your dentures with confidence. You will also be able to enjoy foods that you once had an issue with.

One big benefit to having dental implants is their durability. Dental implants are made out of titanium and will not rot, rust, or decay over time. You do have to maintain proper oral care so that the bone maintains density and strength. Your dental crown is impervious to cavities also. You can ship a crown, but with proper care and attention you should never have to repair, or replace your dental implant.

When you compare this with dentures and partials that often need replacing, you will be saving money over the lifetime of having your dental implant.

Dental implants help you maintain strong and healthy jawbones. As you are chewing and biting things, it applies pressure to your jaw which stimulates bone growth. Patients with dentures suffer a negative result. The bone shrinks over time because of the lack of ongoing pressure from chewing and biting therefore, dentures become loose and your ability to speak and chew is diminished.

Contact the tooth doctor at 780-758-6684 and schedule a free consultation with Dr. Peter Yoo. You will be glad to discuss all of the benefits of getting a dental implant.
