Are Dental Implants for Me?

When you think about the ideal candidate for dental implants, you imagine someone who is in good general and oral health. Since dental implants are replacing and imitating the same structure of a natural tooth, adequate bone health in your jaw is required to support the implant; making the most ideal candidates individuals with healthy gums.

As a solution to missing or replacing teeth, dental implants are created to intimately connect with your gum tissue and underlying bone to secure the implant. A critical member of your dental implant team, periodontists use their expertise and knowledge to ensure a successful implant for every patient.

Dental Implants Facts

  • It has been estimated that 69 percent of Americans age 35 to 44 have at least one missing tooth, and one in four over the age of 74 have lost ALL their natural teeth.
  • Dental implants are the only dental restoration option that preserves and stimulates natural bone, actually helping to stimulate bone growth and prevent bone loss.
  • Usually made of titanium, a dental implant replaces the root of the missing tooth root and provides a strong and sturdy foundation for one or more replacement teeth or crowns
  • Teeth restored with dental implants can't get cavities! An replacement tooth, or crown, doesn't decay like a natural tooth, but you still must brush, floss and care for it and your surrounding natural teeth and gums in the same manner as natural teeth. Regular professional cleanings and dental check-ups also are essential.
