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

Are you in search for solutions to restore one or more missing teeth? If so, you may want to consider dental implants. They deliver incredible results, leaving you with natural looking and feeling teeth. With implants, you will smile with confidence once again!

 

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are titanium replacement tooth roots, similar in shape to screws. After surgically placing your implant, we use a connector known as an abutment to hold and support your crowns which are custom-made to match your natural teeth.

 

The Dental Implant Advantage

Dental implants are the best and strongest restorative options available today! When placed in your jawbone, they bond with your natural bone, providing a sturdy base to support one or more artificial teeth called crowns. Your restorations will look, feel, and function just like natural teeth.

Dental implants will restore your youthful appearance by retaining your natural facial structure and your smile. Their most significant advantage is that they help to preserve your healthy bone and prevent bone resorption by acting like natural tooth roots. With implants, you will enjoy improved speech and confidence and will be able to eat anything you want without any restrictions.

Implants boast a success rate of up to 98% and are incredibly durable, providing a choice long-term solution. With proper care, they have the potential of lasting a lifetime!

 

Ideal Candidates for Dental Implants

Dental implants are the choice restorations for patients missing one or more of their teeth. The best candidates enjoy good oral and general health and have an adequate bone mass to support an implant. If bone loss has occurred, you may still be able to receive a bone graft to build up the bone where we will place your implant.

Certain conditions such as diabetes or leukemia, or habits such as tobacco use, may interfere with your ability to receive an implant because they may inhibit healing. When you come in for your consultation, we will help you determine whether dental implants are right for you.
