Dental implants have become the most popular procedure for tooth replacement because they provide a permanent solution for restoring a healthy, attractive, and functional smile. However, every patient is different and only a qualified doctor can determine if your health and oral condition are adequate for dental implants. Here are some considerations when trying to determine if dental implants are right for you.
Ideal candidates for dental implants should be missing one or more teeth and should also fit the criteria below:
As mentioned above, dental implant success depends on healthy gums and sufficient jawbone thickness. However, should either of these things be lacking, additional procedures may be necessary to adequately prepare the patient for the dental implant procedure. Most providers evaluate patients on a case-by-case basis to determine if additional procedures are necessary. For more information, please see our Dental Implants InfoSite page on Supplemental Procedures.
If you want to replace your missing and damaged teeth, dental implants could be a great option for you. And now that you know all about what makes a good candidate for dental implants, why not take a look at the placement process?
