Am I a good candidate for Dental Implants? Examination and Dental/Medical Evaluation:
Each individual presents a unique picture of requirements and capabilities. An examination with x-rays and a thorough Dental/Medical evaluation will determine if anyone is a good candidate for dental implants.
A thorough Dental & Medical evaluation, consultation, and treatment planning is necessary to determine precisely the type, style, and detail of any individual's Implant case.
Our Doctors will perform a detailed examination before deciding to undertake any implant case. We will determine the condition of your bone and tissue as well as your general health pertaining to your ability to receive an implant case. A thorough discussion of your options will occur as well as a review of the financial obligation so that you will be able to help decide what style of implant best suits your needs and requirements.
Types of Implant cases to be considered:
1) Single tooth replacement:
This is for the patient who has lost only a single tooth and wants a fixed replacement.
2) Multiple tooth replacement:
This is for patients who have lost two, or more, teeth and wants an implant case to restore them without having to have a conventional bridge or a removable partial denture. Implants are an excellent modality for the elimination of having to use a removable partial denture.
3) Full removable denture stabilization:
A full removable denture can be retained by as few as two, or up to several implants, while still being supported by your gum tissue.
Implants can be used to support a fixed bridge by connecting implants to natural teeth or connecting several implants together.
Complete bridge support patients with all natural teeth missing can have them restored completely with fixed bridges anchored by implants. This type of fixed (cemented or retained by screws) restoration is removable only by your dentist.
