Who is a good candidate for dental implants?

Dental implants are a great option for patients seeking a perfect natural looking smile. Implants are permanent, durable, and are built to last upwards of 25 years. Compared to other solutions, implants typically never need replacement. They give patients the feeling of natural teeth and look aesthetically pleasing. Implants allow patients to live a healthy life eating and drinking the foods they love.

As part of our implant evaluation we will determine if a patient is a good candidate for dental implants. Typically, anyone is a good candidate for implants, but we do look for specific things when we evaluate the condition of a patient’s teeth.

You may be a good candidate if you have any of the following:

  • Have missing, broken, or cracked teeth
  • Patient is in good oral and general health
  • Patient has adequate bone in the jaw to support the dental implants. Bone grafting can be done if needed to provide additional support.
  • Your dentures or partials are loose fitting or uncomfortable
  • Your jaw looks sunken in
  • Teeth are not functioning properly when you speak or eat
  • Patient is old enough and has stopped growing

Our goal is to give you a smile you can be proud of. We listen to our patients and work to give each patient exceptional care. Our office is equipped with state of the art technology, and we strive to make patients feel welcome and relaxed when they walk into our office.

How long do dental implants last?

Many patients wonder how strong dental implants are, and how long they will last. Dental implants are the strongest tooth restoration option available to patients. They last upwards of 25 years, or a lifetime if they are cared for properly. Dental implants are built of titanium and are anchored to the bone rather than the tooth’s roots. This allows the implants to be stronger, and in some cases can withstand more pressure than our natural teeth.

Implants look and feel like natural teeth, and feel very comfortable in the mouth. Implants are permanent and make it easier to eat and speak giving patient’s confidence. There is no soaking or cleaning with implants like with other restorative solutions such as dentures.

Implants give patients a beautiful natural looking smile they can be proud of. Any patient is a candidate for implants, and bone grafting can be done if needed to provide the required support for the implants.

Benefits of dental implants:

  • Provide long term value financially
  • Implants preserve the natural bone in the mouth, and this helps to stimulate new bone growth.
  • Implants do not slip or click like other solutions
  • Implants are built to last and with proper oral hygiene habits they can last patient’s a lifetime
  • Look and feel like natural teeth
