Are dental implants right for me?
If you have missing teeth, you have probably discovered the modern, tooth-replacement option called dental implants. Because they replace the entire tooth, including the root, dental implants are stable and long-lasting with the proper care. Their benefits are the reason that so many people are seeking dental implants as a solution to missing teeth.
An exam with your Northern Heights dentist will help you decide if dental implants are right for you.
Here are some factors that can determine if you are a good candidate for dental implants.
- You have enough healthy bone.
- You are committed to good oral hygiene care.
- You keep your professional dental cleaning and exam appointments.
- You have healthy gums.
Evaluation of your bone, teeth, gums, and goals for your smile will help Dr. Lindsay Essenmacher ensure that your dental implant treatment is a success. Certain medication and smoking might make dental veneers riskier. We can discuss each of your tooth-replacement options and help you make a choice that works best for you.
For patients seeking an alternative to dental implant treatment, we also offer fixed dental bridges, partial dentures, full dentures, and implant dentures.
