Are You a Candidate for Dental Implants?

Missing teeth make it hard to feel confident in your smile. They can also make it hard to eat, speak, and even breathe properly! Getting dental implants in New York is a great way to replace missing teeth and get back a strong, straight, and functional smile. View this guide to see if you might be a good candidate for dental implants:

You are Missing One or More Teeth

Patients who have lost one or multiple teeth may be good candidates for dental implants. Tooth loss can occur for a variety of reasons, including poor dental hygiene, trauma, and severe chipping or cracking that requires a tooth to be removed from the mouth. Some people are also born without one or more adult teeth, noticing that they never emerge even when primary teeth fall out during childhood.

You Do Not Want Dentures

Dentures have long been the go-to option for patients who are missing teeth and want to restore their smiles. But many patients find dentures to be annoying, uncomfortable, and inconvenient. If you get dentures and find them uncomfortable, you might not wear them properly or as often as you should. Instead of a temporary fix, dental implants provide a permanent solution! Implants are placed securely into the jawbone to provide a strong, safe, reliable, and natural-looking replacement for missing teeth.

You Have Healthy Gums

It is important that patients have enough healthy gum tissue to support dental implants. The best candidates for dental implants are missing teeth but still have healthy gums and jawbones with no signs of periodontal disease. Patients should also be non-smokers who are not taking medication that can interfere with the procedure. If you are worried that you are not a good candidate, talk to your dentist to get a professional opinion.
