Who Qualifies for Dental Implants?
To qualify for Dental implants, you will need to have an adequate amount of jawbone tissue to support the prosthetic.
You should also have gums free of periodontal disease, as gum disease can lead to an increased risk of tooth loss and implant failure. If you have any questions about teeth replacement with a strong and secure prosthetic, do not hesitate to get in touch with us today.
A dental implant is a metal material that a periodontist or oral surgeon surgically fits into the jaw. Once in place and the bone surrounding the implant has had time to heal, a replacement tooth is attached to the post by our dentists.
Dental implants are expensive but provides superior benefits compared to others.
Dental implants are stronger than natural teeth and generally last 10-20 years. They are also a more favorable approach than bridgework since they do not depend on neighboring teeth for support.
To receive dental implants, you need to have healthy gums and adequate bone to support the implant post. You must also be committed to excellent oral hygiene and regular dental visits, as these are critical to the long-term success of dental implants.
