Are You a Candidate for Implants?
If you are missing one, several, or even all of your teeth, implants can be a good solution. However, your dentist will consider a number of factors before recommending this treatment option. First, he will examine your jaw health. If you have suffered bone recession, you may not have enough tissue to support the posts. In many cases, however, Dr. Eldin or Dr. Amer can perform a bone graft or sinus lift. These procedures can restore lost bone tissue or build up a smaller area of the jaw, providing a strong base for the implants. Your periodontal health will also affect your candidacy for treatment. Gum disease can cause tissue recession and implant failure. However, after proper care, you may still be able to receive implants. Finally, Dr. Eldin or Dr. Amer will evaluate your physical wellness since you should have overall good health before undergoing elective surgery.
Reasons to Consider Dental Implants
Implant-supported restorations are the most durable and stable treatment available. When you practice good oral hygiene and attend regular appointment, implants can last for life. Because of their unparalleled stability, you will not typically need to make any changes to your diet. Your new restoration will also look incredibly lifelike. It will be custom-made to match your smile, and you will not have to worry about metal clasps or adhesive. Finally, implants can prevent bone recession and additional tooth loss, protecting your appearance and overall oral health for decades.
