How Do I Know If I Am a Candidate for Dental Implants

November 21st, 2018

Are you hiding your smile due to missing one or more of your teeth? If so, dental implants may be a good option for you. They look and feel so natural, leaving you with an improved quality of life and a beautiful, confident smile!

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are artificial replacement tooth roots that provide a strong foundation for fixed or removable replacement teeth. They are designed to match your natural teeth, leaving you with incredibly natural looking and feeling results.

Why implants?

Dental implants are the second best thing to your natural teeth. They look and feel like your own teeth, and because they are fused with your bone, they are permanent. They are the only restorations that will preserve your bone by acting just like real tooth roots.

Your new implants will help with improved speech and comfort, and will also allow you to eat anything you want with no restrictions. You will enjoy improved oral health and increased confidence. Best of all, you won’t have to deal with removable dentures or bridges. Implants are incredibly durable, with the potential of lasting a lifetime with proper care. They come with a success rate of up to 98 percent. No other restoration can compare to dental implants!

Are You a Candidate for Dental Implants?

Dental implants may be an option for you if you are missing one, several, or even all of your teeth. The best candidates are in good oral and general health, and with a jawbone with enough bone to support an implant. If you do not have sufficient bone, that does not necessarily rule you out as a candidate. Procedures such as bone grafting can help build up the bone where we will place the implant.

Some chronic illnesses such as diabetes or leukemia may interfere with healing after implant surgery. Using tobacco can also slow healing. Talk to us about whether you are a good candidate for dental implants. We will help you decide on the right restorative procedure for you based on your individual needs and condition.
