ARE YOU A CANDIDATE FOR DENTAL IMPLANTS?
- Are you missing one or more teeth?
- Is your lacking confidence because of your teeth or smile?
- Do you want natural-looking replacement teeth?
- Does wearing a denture restrict your ability to eat and smile comfortably?
Dental implants can replace missing teeth for people of all ages, young and old. Clinical studies have proven implants to be highly successful regardless of your age, (ten year results indicate better than 95 percent success). Nearly everyone is a candidate for dental implants and there are very few medical conditions that would rule out dental implant treatment.
As part of your treatment evaluation, your dental team will carefully review your medical and oral health and examine the condition of your teeth and gums, as well as the amount and quality of your jawbone. Specific x-rays and models will help your prosthodontist determine whether you are a candidate for dental implants.
