You may have already decided that you want to explore the option of having dental implant therapy, but is it even an option?
Periodontal disease (gum disease) can cause moderate to severe bone loss as well as the loss of teeth. Your dentist will work with you to ensure that your mouth is free of any disease prior to the placement of the implant. Through dedicated home care and professional cleanings, patients who have lost teeth due to gum disease can make excellent implant candidates.
Patients who smoke or use tobacco products may have a more difficult time responding to dental therapies such as dental implant placement.
Talk to your implant dentist to explore your options or to discuss a tobacco cessation program before your procedure.
Traditional tooth replacement treatments require the alteration of healthy adjacent teeth, or wearing removable appliances.
Dental implants don’t. With a dental implant, you can enjoy what looks and feels like a natural tooth all over again.
