Reasons for Considering Dental Implants

Reasons You Might Consider Dental Implants

  • Missing teeth due to decay, injury, or past extractions

  • Difficulties with chewing or speaking

  • Reduced confidence and self-esteem from changes in your smile

  • Bone loss in the jaw area

  • Seeking alternatives to traditional dentures or bridges

Assessing Your Suitability for Implants

  • Gum Health : Healthy gums are critical for successful dental implant placement. If you have gum disease, Shades Creek Dental will provide the necessary treatments to prepare your gums for the implant procedure.

  • Bone Volume : Sufficient bone density in the jaw is essential for the stability of dental implants. If there’s insufficient bone volume, we may recommend procedures like bone grafting to enhance your jawbone structure, ensuring a stable foundation for the implants.

  • Systemic Health Conditions : Certain health conditions, such as uncontrolled diabetes or autoimmune diseases, can impact the healing process and success of dental implants. Our team will thoroughly evaluate your medical history and collaborate with your healthcare provider to make a safe and informed decision.

  • Overall Physical Health : Your general physical health is also a key factor in determining your suitability for dental implants. While age is generally not a barrier, we take into account lifestyle factors such as tobacco use, alcohol consumption, and certain medications during our assessment.
