Am I a good candidate for dental implants?
Dental implants have recently become the tooth replacement method of choice for dentists and patients alike. They offer a permanent solution for replacement of missing teeth and are designed to look, feel, and function just like your natural tooth.
Many factors go into deciding if a patient is a good candidate for dental implants. These include, but are not limited to, the state of your overall and dental health, the volume and quality of bone needed to support the implants, and your time and budgetary concerns. Dental implants have proven very effective for patients who want to:
- Replace one or more missing teeth
- Support and stabilize an existing bridge or denture
- Preserve jawbone density and strength
- Improve a sunken facial appearance caused by tooth loss
Dental implants are completely independent of surrounding teeth, so they also provide a tooth replacement option that does not put stress on adjacent healthy teeth.
