What is a Dental Implant Procedure?
This procedure for dental implant integration has been available for more than 45 years, initially on an experimental basis. It was first introduced and patented by Dr. Per-Ingvar Branemark, for use in surgical applications in Sweden where he completed most of his research.
Dr. Branemark has clinically introduced effective implant treatments into dentistry, thus reversing the stigma associated with implantology that prevailed in the dental community. Previously reserved for oral surgeons, implant procedures became widely available, to be performed also by general dentists, thus drastically reducing dental implants cost.
Dental Implants vs Dentures: What’s the Difference?
Dental implants and dentures accomplish two separate goals in your mouth. Dentures or dental bridges restore teeth above the gum line. Implants serve as chewing support fixtures to accept the load beneath the gum line. In other words, implants are imbedded in the jaw bone for support; dentures or bridges restore the actual pearly whites. Therefore, the dental implant versus dentures argument is lost before it is initiated. Dental implants and dentures will harmoniously work together.

Are Dental Implants Cheap?
Dental Implants vs Crowns
Dental Implants vs Bridges
If your practitioner advises you to cut down your natural teeth to accept the dental bridge, ask them whether or not they would advise the same solution for their mother. Wait a moment and see them blush.
At Pearl we have a dental implants bridges “new school” solution that does not require reducing natural tooth structures. First, the implants are integrated in your jaw bone. They act as fixtures to support the dental implant bridges that are affixed to them above the gum line. The best feature of dental implant bridges is that they do not decay. This may well explain why dental implant bridges are not widely offered in general dental practices.
Dental Implants Cost
Statistically, cost of dental implants is the single most prohibitive factor that hinders treatment acceptance by patients. The unfortunate consequence is preventing them from improving their wellbeing.
Dental implant cost varies greatly with the treatment option. The better the practitioner, the more value attributed to their time and abilities. The better question to pose would be, would you want an eye surgery done by an amateur doctor found in two for one special newspaper ads? Or would you find the best ophthalmic surgeon in your vicinity and finance his fees on your line of credit, irrespective of the numbers?
Please pause and consider this subject for a moment. It seems we both know the answer. Dental implant cost should always be measured in view of value, not dollars. If you comprehend what immeasurable benefit you gain and life changing decision you make by accepting ANY implant option, dental implant cost becomes secondary. Any serious consideration of the cost of dental implants rapidly dissipates. Indeed, cost of dental implants is negligible when viewed through the prism of life improvement that this treatment option brings to your portfolio.
What is a Tooth Replacement Procedure?
Tooth implant procedure is perhaps the most revolutionary technique that can only be compared to the widespread use of local anesthetics for pain control. The opportunities made available since the advancement of tooth implant procedures are enormous. No more are dental providers bound by the rules of “what is lost is lost.” Mouth function can be fully regained with tooth dental procedures done at Pearl Denture and Dental Care.
Why should I seek treatment from a denturist rather than a dentist?
Can I repair my dentures in my home? Should I?
Am I in need of a rebase?
Changes to tissues are gradual and seldom perceived. With professional expertise, the fit of dentures in conjunction with oral tissues is accomplished through assessment and precise measurements. Pearl ReCare completes these evaluations during your annual recall visits, further illustrating our ongoing commitment to your oral health.
Why would my bottom denture be loose and the top fit perfectly?
On the subject of dentures, Aristotle and Pearl Denture Care concur that once natural teeth are lost, mouth functions change. Unfortunately, after natural teeth are lost, conventional dentures can only be placed on gums and muscles. Doing so results in severe limitation of muscle mobility. All major muscles of the tongue and mouth floor originate and attach on the lower jaw. By comparison, no major muscles are involved in the fit of your top dentures. There is the answer. Functionality of mandibular (bottom) dentures can be greatly enhanced through the placement of only two implants, securing bottom dentures and reversing your negative experiences for your lifetime.
For the most part, I am happy with my dentures. But why do they shift when I am chewing?
At Pearl Denture Care, we will restore you to the beautiful smile you once had, from the aesthetic perspective. From the functional standpoint, we can employ dental implants to return the function of your natural teeth.
Because dentures only replace the look of natural teeth and not the function, we can predictably and precisely anchor your beautiful new teeth to the bone through implants. Once you set a treatment planning appointment with your practitioner, we will examine your alternatives and see if implants are the best solution for you.
What happens in the event of an emergency? Do I have options?
Cheap Dental Implants
It is vital to assess the “cheapness” of a service based on the benefit it provides and to ensure that no questions remain unanswered. As a rule, cheap dental implant is the one that is manufactured in Communist China by a company that has been in the automotive fastener business. When they decide to move to another industry, customer support will be lost and you will be left with practically irreversible solutions. At Pearl we call it “All on 4 or none on 3.”
In Calgary we see a number of cases completed abroad during winter months. We have yet to see one that does not fail within a short period of time, returning the patient to our clinic. At Pearl Denture and Dental Care cost effective “cheap dental implant” options are available for your specific situation and do not compromise the quality of restorations.
