Edmonton Dentist | Why We Recommend Dental Implants

At the tooth doctor, your Edmonton dentist, we recommend dental implants for people who have missing teeth, or improperly fitting dentures. By having dentures that don’t fit well, or partials that keep slipping out you can improve your quality of life by seeking the help of the tooth doctor. We can fit you with an implant that will prevent your dentures from slipping out at the most inappropriate moment.


As an Edmonton dentist we have helped many people achieve a great smile and improve their overall health and well-being by performing dental implant surgery. One of the main features of dental implants is their durability.

Dental implants are made from titanium, and the crown is made from very strong materials like porcelain. These materials don’t break down like your natural teeth, or like other dental appliances.

It is possible to damage a porcelain crown, but they are easily replaced. The overall cost of a dental implant is much less then a denture when you consider the time frame. If you properly maintain your oral health, and care for your dental implant as a natural tooth, it should last you your entire life.

Dentures often need to be replaced and depending on how many times you need to replace them, can cost you considerably more than a dental implant.

Dental implant technology has developed incredibly last several years. It is now very difficult to tell the difference between natural teeth and a dental implant. When you’re working with professional Edmonton dentist, like the tooth doctor, you can achieve amazing results with your dental implant.


Implants can help improve confidence when eating and interacting with others. When you compare dentures and partials, there are certain foods that you avoid, as well as certain social situations that prevent some people from going out in public.

You will her the stories of people’s dentures flying out of their mouth when they sneeze, or try and blow out the birthday cake candles. These things are very embarrassing and can make people self-conscious about their dentures.

Having improved confidence is a major benefit to receiving and implant. Dental implants are great for replacing single teeth, or helping with securing bridges or dentures. There is much more comforting convenience associated with the dental implants then there is with a denture.

Edmonton dentist | why you should choose a dental implant

The tooth doctor is an Edmonton dentist that cares about a person’s overall well-being. In fact Dr. Peter Yoo says “my goal for our patients is to provide a practical and conservative approach for long-lasting dental health. We strive to saves many teeth as possible, for as long as possible, for as cheap as possible.”

A recent study looked at patient satisfaction rates 8 to 14 years after undergoing implant dentistry treatment. Of those who responded, 81% reported high levels of comfort when biting and chewing; 94% of those who responded reported high levels of satisfaction with their smile aesthetics even many years later.

Biting and chewing is very important to our overall health. With dentures, people lose around 80% of their biting power. This takes a lot of foods off the menu. If you are someone who enjoys the occasional Apple, or raw vegetables then eating these foods is much more difficult than it was before dentures.

With a dental implant, it is inserted directly into the jaw bone and replaces your natural tooth. Once everything has healed, you can eat all the same foods that you always did. With the expert care of an Edmonton dentist like Dr. Peter Yoo, the implant will be properly fitted so that there is no interference from surrounding teeth or with your bite.

This is very important as crushing and pulverizing food with your teeth is the first step in the digestion process. Being able to properly cheer food means that you are going to get the maximum amount of nutrition out of those foods.
