Dental implants are so effective that they are the most popular tooth replacement among dentists and patients alike. As successful as dental implants are, they are not the best choice for everyone.
The primary piece of a dental implant is the small titanium cylinder that is placed in your jaw. This is the implant itself, and it is the thing that sets this tooth replacement apart from others like bridges and dentures.
However, since the implant needs support in your jaw, we need to make sure that you have enough healthy bone to allow the implant to fully integrate with surrounding tissue. It may be the case that your jaw lacks sufficient density, making other tooth replacement methods preferable.
Finding The Right Tooth Replacement Option For You
As the first step in the process of deciding which tooth replacement is best for you, Dr. Singh will perform a thorough exam and assessment of your oral health. We perform the entire procedure – from implant placement to restoration – right here in our office. This allows us to control all aspects of the process, including the decision as to whether implants are right for you.
If we find that you’re not a good candidate for dental implants, we can offer other solutions like a dental bridge or partial denture. Please contact our office to arrange a complimentary solution so we can help you regain your whole and healthy smile.
