Dental Implant Candidates
Dental implants are quickly becoming the most popular method of tooth replacement for patients with one or more severely damaged or missing teeth. Comprised of an implanted titanium post that mimics the tooth root, dental implants can support a variety of custom-made restorations. Unlike removable tooth replacements, dental implants can provide unparalleled stability, reliability, and function. Furthermore, this tooth restoration technique offers outstanding aesthetics to create a natural looking smile that suits you.
With so many clear advantages over more traditional methods of tooth replacement, patients often want to choose dental implants. However, not everyone is a good candidate for dental implants. The first step in rejuvenating your smile with dental implants is determining whether or not they are right for you.
In addition to have one or more missing or severely damaged teeth, patients who are good candidates for dental implants must exhibit the following characteristics:
- Healthy gum tissue and good overall dental health
- A fully developed jawbone
- Sufficient jawbone density to support implants
- Good overall health
The best way to determine if dental implants are appropriate for you is to schedule an appointment with one of our experienced dentists. During the consultation, your dentist will perform an oral exam, assess the condition of your gums and jawbone, review your medical history, and recommend a treatment plan that can meet your needs. For patients who may not be ideal candidates for dental implants, our dentists can offer other reconstructive solutions, such as dental bridges, partials, or removable dentures.
