Are you looking for a viable solution to your tooth loss? Do you find yourself struggling through even the most mundane of daily activities—like chewing your food or pronouncing your words properly? These are common difficulties associated with tooth loss, and the experts at our West Ridge dental office, Family Care Dental Group, are here to offer you a treatment option that will give you your life back. Dental implants are some of the most popular treatment options that patients choose at our West Ridge dental office when it comes to tooth loss replacement, mainly because they look and feel just like natural teeth, and they are a reliable and highly successful option. The actual implant is a small piece of metal, that eventually becomes bonded with the bone in your jaw that surround it. This combination of your natural bone and the implant itself serve as the foundation for the new tooth that will be attached. The replacement tooth is in the form of a dental crown, that will be personalized and color matched in order to blend in flawlessly with the rest of your teeth.
Dental implant restorations require a good amount of time and sometimes several appointments to complete, but this only speaks to the outstanding quality and the true reliability that this treatment option offers. If dental implants sound appealing to you, you should visit our West Ridge dental office to find out if you meet the qualifications needed in order to carry on with the procedure.
In order to dental implants to be successful, there are a few prerequisites that we will need to check for during an examination at our West Ridge dental office. Firstly, it is necessary that you have a sufficient amount of bone mass in order to provide proper support for the dental implant or implants. If you do not meet this qualification, we may recommend that you return to Family Care Dental Group for a bone graft in order to strengthen the underlying bone in your jaw. Another important qualification is to have healthy gums, and good oral health overall. A healthy, clean environment is necessary for a successful dental implant procedure. If we feel you are not yet ready for dental implants, we will make recommendations to better prepare you and help move you along in the process towards repairing your smile. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact the staff at our West Ridge dental office so that we can assist you.
