Why choose dental implants?

Dental implants have many advantages that make them the ideal choice for supporting a crown. Unlike bridges, implants do not require that the dentist grind down the adjacent healthy teeth, which can lead to tooth fracture, decay, or infection down the line. Implants also offer the right amount of jaw pressure to make chewing comfortable and efficient while preserving jaw volume over time. Bridges, on the other hand, do not provide enough chewing pressure to prevent bone loss beneath the missing tooth. What’s more, bridges only last for around ten years, whereas implants can last a lifetime.

Who is a good candidate for single dental implants?

Thanks to today’s advanced technology, most guests will qualify for single dental implants. The best candidates are in possession of healthy gums and are old enough to have already completed the bone growth process. Even if you have suffered some bone loss, you may still qualify for dental implants since bone grafting can be easily added to your treatment roster.

In fact, the implants themselves are actually a remedy for further bone deterioration. During your private consultation, our team will evaluate your jaw, mouth, teeth, and overall well-being through a series of diagnostic tests (X-rays and, in some cases, a CT scan.) This will help to identify the regions where bone loss has set in and survey the condition of the sinuses and surrounding nerves.

Who is not a good candidate for dental implants?

Guests with cancer, diabetes, alcoholism, or gum disease may find their conditions raise the risk of complications after implant surgery. However, they may still qualify for the procedure, depending on the results of their consultation with Dr. Sixto.

Those who take steroids, certain medications, or drugs that inhibit the immune system response may not be ideal candidates for dental implants, nor will those who grind or clench their teeth, behaviors that can put undue pressure on the implants and cause lasting damage to the jaw.

What can I expect from the procedure?

Dr. Sixto will use the best techniques to suit your individual needs and goals. He may use tooth extraction to remove a broken or worn down tooth, being careful to preserve as much gum and bone as possible.

He may also utilize bone grafting if called for. If the missing tooth is in an area where it is visible, Dr. Sixto can place a temporary cosmetic restoration on top of the implant that ensures an aesthetically pleasing appearance while the bone heals after implant surgery.
