What are Dental Implants?
When you are looking into tooth replacement options, there is one option that best mimics your natural teeth — dental implants. Dental implants are used to replace the entire tooth structure, including the tooth root. The process is completed in various steps and involves surgically placing an artificial tooth root into the jawbone. Once healed, the process is completed in our office with a natural-looking artificial tooth structure such as a dental crown. Implants can be used to replace one tooth or multiple teeth.
Who is a Candidate for Dental Implants?
Some patients are hesitant to inquire about dental implants because they assume they wouldn’t be eligible for treatment. Thanks to the advancements in dental technology and treatment procedures, more patients than ever are eligible. Our main concern is the state of a patient’s oral health. We also want to ensure that each patient understands the time commitment involved for this treatment. From start to finish, this treatment will take several months. Unfortunately, patients who are smokers and those with certain medical conditions are not eligible.
