Who Is a Good Candidate for Dental Implants?
Replacing missing teeth with implants is a great solution. However, it is not for everyone. How can you know if you are a good candidate for dental implants?
In general, good candidates for implants include those who:
- Are missing one, several, or all of their teeth
- Have reached an age where their jawbone has stopped growing
- Have good oral and overall health
- Have a sufficient amount of bone in the jaw to support and anchor the implants
- Are committed to good oral hygiene practices post-treatment
To determine if dental implants are right for you, we invite you to come in for a dental exam. During the exam, we will conduct a comprehensive evaluation of your mouth, teeth, jaw, and overall health. The assessment will involve the use of a digital x-ray to identify any bone loss and other issues we need to take into consideration. Following the evaluation, we can help you make an informed decision about your treatment options.
Mini Implants vs. Conventional Implants
Using the latest technology and methods, Dr. K offers both conventional implants and mini implants. What is the difference between these two methods?
Traditional dental implants are designed to restore the function and form of a missing tooth. One of the drawbacks of this solution is that it requires a decent amount of bone within the jaw. Patients who have experienced bone loss in their jaw typically require bone grafting and other costly procedures to create enough structure to support the implant anchor.
Mini implants are a helpful way to overcome the problem of bone atrophy. These smaller implants are about half the diameter of traditional ones, and therefore do not require as much healthy bone. This provides an efficient and cost-effective way to restore missing teeth without the need for preliminary treatment.
