Some of our patients are interested in learning more about dental implants but hold off on speaking to a member of our team because they are afraid they won’t be a good candidate. Does this sound like you or someone you know? If so, we are here to tell you that more patients than ever before are eligible for dental implants. Read on to learn more.
Am I a Candidate for Dental Implants?
Our number one tooth replacement recommendation is always dental implants. Dental implants are also a popular choice for many patients because of the many benefits this treatment provides, and the finished product closely resembles your natural teeth. Due to the advancements in technology and dental treatments over the years, we can offer more types of dental implants than ever before. We may recommend a single implant, an implant bridge, or even implant supported dentures. There are also more patients who are eligible for treatment than ever before. That being said, unfortunately, there are still some patients who may not currently be eligible for treatment at this time. Our ultimate goal is for patients to have success with dental implant treatment. SInce the treatment is more involved than other options, certain patients will not be ideal candidates, such as:
Patients With Certain Medical Conditions
Patients receiving certain medical treatments or who have been diagnosed with certain conditions may not be eligible for treatment. For patients such as those starting cancer treatment or the transplant process, we can evaluate the state of your oral health prior to treatment and create a plan for before and after treatment.
