Am I A Candidate for Dental Implants?

If you’re missing a tooth, it’s absolutely crucial that you replace the missing tooth as soon as possible. Failure to do so can result in a range of serious dental health problems, not the least of which is an increased chance of other teeth tilting and shifting out of position.

Dental implants are among the most popular tooth replacement options in the Omaha area. This is because they’re strong, durable and inconspicuous.

But dental implants are not right for everyone. Our dentists will thoroughly evaluate your dental health to determine if you’re a good candidate for implants. Generally speaking, a good candidate for dental implants:

  • Has enough bone density in the jaw to support an implant
  • Does not suffer from gum disease or any other oral health disease
  • Is prepared to invest the time necessary for implants
  • Does not grind their teeth
  • Doesn’t smoke
  • Has a fully matured jaw (usually only a concern for younger patients)

The good news is that most patients with missing teeth are sound candidates for dental implants. In some circumstances, patients without the necessary bone density can undergo a bone graft, though that will obviously lengthen the procedure timeline.

If you are a good candidate for dental implants, you will love the results. Implants don’t just provide you with strong tooth replacement – they provide you with a beautiful smile that does not betray the fact that you have an artificial tooth.

If you live in or around Omaha, Nebraska and have questions about dental implants, please call The Dentists at Hillsborough today at 402-445-4647 for a consultation and examination.
