Dental Implant Candidates
Dental implants can be a highly beneficial option for those with missing or severely damaged teeth. The solution mimics the natural structure of the tooth, from the root to the actual tooth’s appearance. While dental implants can significantly improve the form and function of your teeth, Dr. Marianna Farber must first determine you are a good candidate for the procedure before moving forward with the life-changing restoration.
Patients exhibiting the following characteristics are typically considered good candidates for dental implant surgery:
- One or more missing teeth
- Fully developed jawbone
- Adequate amount of jawbone density
- Reasonably healthy gum tissue
- No medical conditions that could complicate healing post-surgery
- Not currently undergoing cancer treatment
While these factors often describe the ideal candidate for dental implants, you should schedule a consultation with our dentist to fully understand if you qualify. During your appointment, she will examine your gums and jaw to determine whether they may provide adequate support for the implant’s titanium post to be anchored in the jawbone. Should you discover you are not a good candidate, Dr. Farber will help you find an alternative solution to help you reach your goals.
