What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are surgically implanted into the jawbone. They provide a permanent base for replacement teeth such as a crown. Over time, the artificial tooth roots fuse with the jawbone to create a permanent solution. Dental implants are the best alternative to regular teeth, as the look and functionality of the implant mimics that of a natural tooth. Implants can be used when replacing one tooth or for a whole mouthful of teeth.
Am I a Candidate for Dental Implants?
Due to the surgical nature of the procedure, patients who are still growing, such as children or teens would not be a candidate due to their growing and changing bodies and facial features. A patient also needs to have an adequate jawbone to hold the implant in place. This can be determined during the initial appointment.
Before recommending treatment, we will do a thorough examination of the jaw, teeth, and mouth. We will also examine your overall health. This will be done through the use of various X-rays and scans of the face. We need to be sure that your facial structure is capable of handling the effects of the procedure.
Dental implants are a wonderful tooth replacement option and have truly changed the lives of many of our patients. If you are located in the Silverdale, WA area and are interested in learning more about dental implants, please call our office today to schedule an appointment.
