Are Dental Implants Right for You?
When you lose a tooth, you lose both the root and the crown. To replace the tooth, it’s necessary to first replace the root with a small dental implant.
Dental implants are a highly effective, established treatment for replacing a tooth or teeth lost as a result of injury, disease or extraction. These natural-looking and feeling restorations can greatly improve your quality of life while boosting your confidence level and overall oral health.

He uses 2D and 3D technologies, including Computerized Tomography (CT) imaging, to pre-plan your implant procedures prior to actually performing them.
Facts About Dental Implants
In the hands of a highly trained dental implant specialist, these procedures are very safe and secure. Here are some facts to help put your mind at ease when considering dental implants:
- Dental implant surgery is 98% effective.
- Dental implants are generally made from titanium, which is biocompatible with the human body.
- Dental implants stimulate your natural bone under your missing tooth and are the only restorative method to do so.
- Dental implants can last for nearly 30 years, in some cases.
- To avoid staining, dental implants require the same level of care as natural teeth.
How to Determine If You Are a Dental Implant Candidate
The major determinant of whether or not you are a candidate for dental implants is whether you have enough healthy bone under your teeth. In order to have a successful dental implant experience, there has to be enough bone for your dental implant to attach to, otherwise supplemental material will need to be grafted onto your jawbone. Your local dentist will thoroughly examine your oral health to determine your candidacy before recommending you invest in dental implants.
