Am I a good candidate for dental implants?
Dental implants are a fantastic way to replace missing teeth. Implants are posts made from biocompatible titanium that are designed to integrate with your bone and provide a stable foundation for your dental implant crown. They provide an anchor, similar to the tooth root, to which a restoration may be mounted to complete your smile and your chewing surface.
Most patients are good candidates for dental implants. To find out if you are a good candidate for tooth replacement with dental implants, we will evaluate your bone density and medical history. Certain illnesses and medications can prevent you from having dental implants.
We will also discuss your lifestyle to make sure that dental implants are a good choice for you. If you already have partials, dental bridges, or dentures, dental implants can secure your dentistry to give you more stability and self-confidence when you eat and speak. They also have the added benefit of assisting in the prevention of the bone loss that occurs when you start to lose teeth.
