Who Is a Good Candidate for Affordable Dental Implants?


Dental implants consist of titanium posts that are placed into the jawbone. The posts serve as anchors for natural-looking artificial crowns. A local anesthetic is usually sufficient for the procedure. In many cases, dental implants can be placed immediately following an extraction or accidental tooth loss. Other restoration methods require preparation or alteration of adjacent teeth, but an implant doesn’t rely on other teeth for support. Affordable dental implants have revolutionized modern dentistry and given many people a superior option for replacing missing teeth.

How Well Do Implant Dentures Work?

Dental implants have an impressive track record. Over the past 30 years, hundreds of thousands of implants have been placed. More than 90 percent of them were successful. In the rare cases where dental implants fail, or dentists are unable to place them, the problem is usually caused by a lack of adequate healthy jawbone in which to place the post. Implants are usually successful after performing procedures to improve bone stability.

Are You a Good Candidate for Dental Implants?

If you’re wondering whether you are a good candidate for implants, the chances are very high that you are. Few medical problems prevent their use. Age is usually not a factor, even when osteoporosis is present. In fact, implants strengthen and stabilize the remaining bone in your mouth where teeth have been lost. Placement of single and multiple implants are possible options, and implants can even be used to support an overdenture. Whether you are a teenager or a senior, the best dental implants are available to give your smile a makeover.
