Are dental implants right for me?
Many conditions such as missing or broken teeth can not only change your appearance, but can be painful, cause embarrassment, and potentially result in damage to other surrounding healthy teeth. If you have a tooth that is missing or needs replacing, implants are an excellent option. Implants preserve the natural facial contours and restore oral function in a manner that is almost impossible to tell from natural teeth. That means you can show off your improved smile with confidence, and participate in social situations, never being limited by what’s on the table.
Many patients describe dental implants as a more desirable option than fixed bridges or removable dentures. Their quality of life is exceptionally improved as patients are more confident in public situations because of the comfort and security implants offer.
However, it is important that you are in good health. Diabetes, cancer, or radiation to the jaw may affect the ability of the dental implant to properly graft to your jawbone. Alcoholism and periodontal gum disease can also cause problems with implants. These and any other existing medical conditions should be discussed with your dentist prior to making a decision about whether implants are right for you.
