If you are looking for a permanent and natural solution to replace missing teeth, implant dentistry might be right for you! Dental tooth implant procedures are among the most successful options available.
Here are some additional factors to think about when considering implant dentistry:
Adequate Bone | It is necessary to have adequate bone mass in order to place a tooth implant. Often, when teeth have been missing, bone mass has been lost. If bone mass is an issue, Salt Lake City dentist Dr. Thomas can suggest options for bone grafting.
Age | Implant dentistry is an excellent solution to restore missing teeth, regardless of age. For children, receiving a tooth implant is usually postponed until the jawbone is mature. However, there are instances when implant dentistry might be part of a child’s orthodontic treatment.
Periodontal Disease | If your missing teeth are a result of periodontal disease or decay, you might still be an excellent candidate for implant dentistry.
Dentures | A tooth implant specialist like Dr. Thomas in Salt Lake City, Utah can stabilize and secure your dentures with mini dental implants. Combining implant dentistry with removable dentures can significantly improve the comfort and function of your dentures.
Oral Health | If your health allows for routine dental treatment, and there is adequate jawbone structure, you can probably have a tooth implant placed.
Dental Hygiene | If you are committed to regular dental care, including brushing, flossing and routine dental exams, it is likely that you will enjoy a high success rate with your tooth implant.
Smoking | Although smoking lowers the success rate of a tooth implant, it doesn’t eliminate the possibility of being a candidate for implant dentistry.
