Which Washington Township area patients are the best candidates for dental implants?

Many patients in the Washington Township area who are facing restoration of missing natural teeth want to learn about the various ways they can improve the function and beauty of their smiles. One common restorative method is dental implants.

Dental implants are titanium metal fixtures that a dentist surgically places into the jawbone to act as a tooth root. Then, a bridge, crown, or denture is placed on top. They are used to replace one or more teeth. They effectively restore the smile when one tooth is missing, instead of using a bridge or partial denture, and can be used with dentures for patients who have lost an entire arch of teeth.

Dental implants are desirable because they are natural looking, strong, and allow patients to enjoy all their favorite foods. This is because they derive their stability and strength from the jawbone, which keeps them functioning just like natural teeth. They also improve the aesthetics of the smile, and can help patients continue to speak and eat as efficiently as they did before the loss of their natural tooth or teeth.

Many patients want to find out if they are viable candidates for dental implants. Suitable candidates for this restorative procedure are those who have lost one or more of their teeth and have undergone an oral examination with their dentist. Patients must also be free from periodontal disease, as this condition can greatly affect the success of dental implant placement. They will have several x-rays taken to ensure they have enough bone structure for the placement of the implant. The process of osseointegration occurs as the bone grows around the implant and gives it the strength it requires to function at its best. Without enough bone, the implant placement will fail and alternatives may need to be considered.
