Am I a Candidate for Dental Implants?
Are your teeth on the verge of falling out? Have you been wearing dentures for years? Are you genetically predisposed to bad teeth? Are you missing even just one tooth? Chances are, you are a candidate for dental implants!
A huge benefit to dental implants over all other tooth replacement options, is that implants replace a tooth root. The tooth root is essential to keeping your jaw bone strong and healthy. Without a root, bone quickly begins to wear away. This causes your face to sink, leaving you with an older appearance, and weakened facial structure.
A successful dental implant procedure requires a sufficient amount of healthy bone in which to be embedded and anchor to. Issues like diabetes, and long term smoking can severely affect the amount of bone you have, the strength of the remaining bone and your body’s ability to heal. With that being said Dr. Sean at All Bright Dental has had numerous successful cases of patients who’ve had illnesses or a history of smoking.
Bone grafts are commonly done prior to and during dental implant procedures. Bone grafts take natural or synthetic bone and add it to areas where bone is deficient in order to build up a solid foundation. So should you suspect you may be lacking the necessary amount, don’t count yourself out.
