Have you found yourself at a crossroads recently as you looked into tooth replacement solutions? This is a common story – patients often learn about the exceptional benefits of dental implants and then immediately worry that they might not qualify for treatment. Rather than assuming this treatment isn’t for you, we encourage you to learn more about candidacy. Fortunately, implants offer a wonderful solution to a wide variety of patients. Even more exciting? If you’re not already a great candidate, there’s a good chance we can assist you in becoming one.
You Are Ready For The Process
Choosing dental implants is not something you do lightly – however, making this decision is certainly a wonderful investment in your future smile. You see, to begin the process you will undergo the surgical implantation of implant posts into your jawbone. After surgery, you will heal for at least three months as the post fuses with your bone tissue. It’s important that you are prepared for the complex treatment rather than expecting an instant tooth replacement.
Your Jawbone Is Healthy
Your jawbone will provide all of the support your dental implant requires. If your jaw tissue is damaged, it may not be healthy or full enough for implant placement. Fortunately, bone grafting often provides a successful option for restoring your jaw health, so you may move forward with treatment.
You Are Fit For Oral Surgery
You will need to be healthy enough to undergo and recover from oral surgery if you intend on receiving dental implants. Otherwise, we may suggest alternative options for completing your smile.
