When Should I Consider Dental Implants?

Dental implants offer a wide range of benefits, which is why many patients wonder if using them can help give them a more beautiful and lasting smile after the loss of teeth. If you’re missing one or more teeth, including one or both arches, dental implants can be one of the best ways to address these issues. That said, implants aren’t right for everyone. During an initial evaluation, our skilled dentists check for:

  • Sufficient jawbone density in the area to be treated
  • Good overall health (gum disease is not necessarily a strike against dental implants, though)
  • Understanding of the process of implant placement and recovery

Some individuals choose to have dental implants after finding traditional removable dentures to be unsatisfying and uncomfortable. Others lose a single tooth and want a natural-looking replacement that functions the same as a natural tooth. If you’re bothered by the loss of teeth, we can help you determine if dental implants or another approach can provide the optimal result. Call us today for more information.
