Are You a Good Candidate for Dental Implants?

A dental implant is a replacement tooth that is crafted to resemble the natural structure of an original tooth. Implants can replace a single tooth, a series of missing teeth or a full arch of teeth.

Implants most closely resemble real teeth in terms of how they appear and function. They look natural, give you back your chewing power and help keep the surrounding gums and bone healthy.

Many people who have previously been denied implant treatment due to certain health and dental conditions can now successfully receive implants. This is because of the significant technological advances that have been made surrounding implant diagnosis, planning and placement over the last twenty years.

As an example, solutions now exist for people who lack (or thought they lacked) sufficient bone or healthy gum tissue to sustain a dental implant. Developments in 3D digital technology now allow a dentist to see areas of bone density that traditional x-rays may have failed to capture.

Even if you do lack adequate bone or gum tissue, our doctors are highly skilled at providing effective and minimally invasive ways of building these up so that you can become a candidate for a dental implant.

State-of-the-art implant planning and placement software and new techniques for implant placement mean implants can be more precisely and comfortably placed. With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime.
