Am I A Candidate For Dental Implants?
If you’re interested in dental implants, the first question that needs answering is whether you’re a good candidate for the procedure. Thanks to advances in dental technology and surgical techniques, nearly any patient can qualify for dental implants now.
If Dr. Sullivan determines that you have insufficient jawbone mass or unhealthy gum tissues, one or more supplemental treatments can prepare you for implant placement. Otherwise, your candidacy for implants comes down to just a few simple questions.
Dental implants are likely right for you, if:
You Want Stunning, Natural-Looking Restorations
The porcelain crowns or dentures that top your implants are custom-designed to blend in beautifully with your natural teeth. With dental implants, you can completely rejuvenate your smile to promote a youthful and healthy appearance.
You Want Confidence, Freedom, and Happiness
No one should feel afraid to smile — with dental implants, you’ll no longer have to. They’ll also restore full function to your bite so you can chew your favorite foods without concern.
You Want Long-Term Protection for Your Health
Through a process called osseointegration, dental implants take the place of your natural tooth root to support your replacement tooth. Because the implant fixture fuses directly with your jawbone, it stimulates healthy bone growth and prevents you from developing major complications for your oral health.
