Dental Implants – Who does it work for
Anyone who is missing one or more teeth due to injury, disease or decay may be a candidate for dental implants. The main limitation is the amount of available bone. At your first consultation, your dentist will evaluate whether dental implants are a viable solution for you, and the best course of action.
Occasionally, older patients express concern that their age may prevent them from enjoying the benefits of dental implants. However, health is more of a determining factor than age.
If you’re healthy enough to have a tooth extracted, you’re probably healthy enough to receive dental implants!
Implant-supported replacement teeth look, feel and function like natural teeth. This means that you can eat and drink whatever you are used to.
Most importantly, dental implants often improve quality of life in a very concrete way. People who have felt embarrassed and worried because of their tooth problems are often overwhelmed by what new permanent teeth can do for their self-esteem.
