Are You A Candidate For Implants?
At Today’s Dental Comfort, we want every patient to love their smile. If you have recently experienced tooth loss or are dealing with severe decay and need a tooth replacement, you might be struggling with your feelings. When experiencing such high emotions, it can be difficult to make a decision on a tooth replacement option, but we are here to help. Our team will evaluate your situation and make a recommendation based on your needs, lifestyle and budget. One of our top recommendations is always dental implants due to the many benefits they offer to patients.
Why Choose Dental Implants?
Patients love dental implants because they closely resemble their natural teeth. Due to the process of the implants, which includes an artificial tooth root being implanted in the jawbone, there aren’t the same issues with slipping and loose teeth as with other options like dentures. Patients love that they can enjoy their favorite foods and clean their implants as they do their natural teeth.
Am I a Candidate for Implants?
When implants were a new treatment option many years ago, there were a number of patients that weren’t eligible for a variety of reasons. Thanks to the advancements in dental technology as well as updates to the treatment process, more patients are eligible than ever before. That being said, unfortunately, there are still some patients who may not currently be eligible for treatment at this time. Our goal is for patients to have success with treatment, and certain patients may not experience the results they would hope for in certain circumstances. For example, patients with certain illnesses, such as cancer and diabetes, may not be an ideal candidate at this time. Patients who are smokers or use tobacco products also have a higher chance of a failed treatment. Patients who are interested in dental implants should be aware that this process is lengthier than with other options. If a quick result is your goal, another type of treatment may be more beneficial.
