In the past, missing teeth were tricky to replace. Patients only had limited options like a dental bridge. However, dental implants can replace a missing tooth, several missing teeth, or every single tooth in your mouth. But can dental implants help you? Learn more about implants at Dr. Linda Trotter’s practice in Jacksonville, FL.
Can dental implants help me?
Dental implants are a versatile restoration which, unlike other tooth replacement options, replaces missing teeth while also replacing their root. Implants can replace a single missing tooth using a single prosthetic tooth or multiple teeth in a row using a dental bridge. Additionally, several implants can hold a full arch of teeth in place to support an implant-supported denture. No matter what your missing tooth situation, implants can help you get your smile back and make eating and chewing easier.
Good Candidates for Dental Implants
Patients should have adequate bone volume to hold the implant in place. Patients without the proper amount of bone may require a bone graft to rebuild the bone. Assuming you have minimal bone atrophy, you must also be in good general and dental health and able to undergo the general anesthesia required of the implant surgery. Patients should have a great at-home oral care routine which involves brushing and flossing in conjunction with a commitment to seeing their dentist for regular examinations and cleanings every six months.
