What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are screws and placements put in the gums of the mouth that prosthetic teeth are screwed into. This is a process that has to been gone through in steps in order to let the gums and mouth heal with time. Once the process is done, though, the teeth are more permanent than without having the screws and other mechanisms put in place.
Many patients choose to go this route over dentures since they're more permanent, as well as looking real. It is a great alternative to removable dentures that would otherwise slip out of place, or a partial when just a few teeth are missing. Replacing one, two or even three teeth through this method provides the patient with a more confident smile.
Dental Implants Intro
Are You a Good Candidate for Dental Implants?
Not everyone can qualify for dental implant surgery. The ideal candidate has to have enough bone in their gums to hold the implants in place. This has to be evaluated by the dentist, as well as having a good oral hygiene record. Each patient is taken on a patient by patient basis to ensure that they're the best candidate for the process.
Not only that, but your past and present medical and dental history will be taken into consideration during the process.
If you are considering dental implants, it is important to speak with a dentist regarding the specific steps that need to be taken to find out if you're an ideal candidate.
