Am I a Candidate for Dental Implants?
For best results, you should have healthy gums and enough bone tissue in your jaw to support your implants. However, because of the variety of implants we offer and treatments such as bone and gum grafts, most people are good implant candidates. Keep in mind that for your implants to be successful, you should brush and floss your teeth, maintain good gum health, eat a balanced diet and avoid tobacco. You also need to be able to commit to regular appointments with our dentists for your cleanings and exams.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants are permanent restorations, and you can brush and floss them just as you do with your natural teeth. In addition, while a bridge or dentures replace only the crown, dental implants replace the crown and the root, which increases their stability and strengthens your jawbone.
