When it comes to finding the best treatment for your one or more missing teeth, look to Dr. Chuck Majors for a professional consultation for your smile. Not all treatments are same, just like not all patients are the same. Before beginning the dental implants process, it’s important to consult and determine if dental implants are the best treatment option for you.
While MajorSmiles.com will never turn away a patient, there are a few aspects of the ideal patient that we look for in those interested in dental implants. Keep in mind that even if you don’t fall under all the requirements, this does not disqualify you from treatment.
The ideal dental implant patient will have:
Some patients may be surprised that jawbone and gum tissue support is needed for an artificial tooth. Dental implants can lend their success to a process known as osseointegration, which bonds the implant to the jawbone. For this to succeed, sufficient jawbone is needed for the implant to be gently placed.
Also, having generally good oral health is essential to the success of the dental implant as well. Tooth decay and other diseases have the ability to affect neighboring teeth, so it’s important to take care of those prior to dental implants.
If Dr. Majors explains that you don’t have sufficient jawbone for the dental implant procedure, not all is lost! Prior to your dental implants, Dr. Majors may recommend a bone graft be done to stimulate bone growth in your jaw. This process is explained more in detail on our bone graft page.
While dental implants are a great solution for missing teeth, not everyone may qualify for them. Below is a list of attributes that could hinder the success of dental implants, especially the osseointegration process.
These lifestyle changes CAN affect your treatment options. Call to find out more.
