When Dental Implants are the Right Choice
You currently have dentures and would like to stabilize them – If you feel like your dentures just aren’t all that you’d like them to be, dental implants will transform their appearance, fit, and function. Implants connect with your jaw bone, acting as new foundations for dentures. They are anchored to the jaw and sit snugly against the gums, and operate in an entirely new way.
You’re hoping for a long-term solution to tooth loss – Successful implants will last for decades, or even for the rest of your life. They offer a restorative solution that will stay with you for many years to come.
You’re in good oral and systemic health – Because implant placement is surgical, you’ll need to be in good health so that there aren’t any complications or infections.
You have experienced recent tooth loss – Implants are ideal for recent tooth loss because the bone density in the area has not yet resorbed, and there is adequate bone mass present to integrate with the implant.
You’re comfortable with an extended healing process – While there will be some healing time involved, the final result is well worth the process. Make sure you’re prepared to see it through – just ask if you have any questions about what to expect.
