The Simplicity of Dental Implants

Posted in Dental Implants

If you have lost any teeth due to gum disease or for any other reason, your dentist will likely recommend dental implants for you. A dental implant is basically an artificial tooth root that is surgically placed into your jawbone, to later hold a crown or a denture.

Who would be a good candidate?

Ideally, patients should:

  • Be in good oral and general health
  • Have plenty of bone in your jaw for support
  • Not have gum disease, instead, having healthy gums
  • Be committed to regular dental check-ups and good oral hygiene
  • Not be heavy smokers or have any uncontrolled chronic condition

Tooth-Replacement Restoration of Choice

There are many reasons why implants are the recommended treatment option for patients in need of replacement teeth. They are made to last for a lifetime, unlike other tooth-replacement options. Patients can keep them for a long time with proper cleaning and care. Another reason why implants are great is because they look, feel and function just like your natural teeth! This makes them easier to clean and more comfortable too!

Will Implants be covered by insurance?

As implants become more common, some insurance companies are starting to cover a portion of the treatment, depending on your plan. It is always a good idea to ask your dentist for a pre-treatment estimate before you start any dental work, so that you know what to expect.

Are you interested in implants?

Each potential implant candidate will need to be evaluated by their dentist based on their dental situation, oral health as well as their general well-being. Contact your dentist to find out if you would be a good candidate for this predictable tooth replacement option!
