Are You a Candidate for Dental Implants?
Dental implants are an excellent choice for patients who are looking for a permanent tooth replacement option. If you are unfamiliar, dental implants provide a permanent base for replacement teeth. Over time, the prosthesis fuses with the jawbone to create a permanent and lasting solution. They are popular among patients because not only do they restore the function of your teeth, but they are also aesthetically pleasing and blend in seamlessly with the rest of your smile. While more patients than ever before are eligible for treatment, there are still some patients who may not qualify at this time:
Patients Who Are Smokers
Our goal is for you to have a successful treatment, and if you smoke or use any type of tobacco product, it affects the blood flow to the gums, decreasing your chance of successful treatment.
Patients with Certain Medical Conditions
When you meet with our team, please be honest about any medical conditions or treatments you are receiving. Unfortunately, there are certain circumstances where you may not be an ideal candidate for implant treatment.
