Am I a Candidate for Dental Implants?
Designed to mimic the look, feel, and function of natural teeth, dental implants can often be an excellent option if you are seeking to permanently replace one or more missing teeth with beautiful, natural-looking results. Not only can this innovative restorative dentistry treatment enhance the aesthetics of your smile, it can also help improve your ability to speak and chew properly. You may be a good candidate for full dental implants if you:
- Are missing one or several teeth
- Desire a more stable, long-lasting alternative to dentures
- Have enough density in your jawbone to secure your implant(s)
- Do not have particular medical conditions and/or diseases that may inhibit proper healing following the placement of your implant(s)
During an appointment at Scottsdale Smile Center, one of our experienced dentists – Dr. Don Chiappetti and Dr. Jonathan Coombs – can perform a thorough evaluation to determine if you are a good candidate for dental implants. Should this restorative procedure be right for you, our advanced Cone Beam X-Ray technology can be utilized to identify the ideal placement of your dental implant(s) with the utmost accuracy and precision. Once placed and successfully anchored to your jawbone, the tip of your implant(s) can then be fitted with a customized crown designed to match the shape and color of your surrounding teeth, ultimately achieving a natural-looking outcome.
If you do not qualify as a good candidate for full dental implants, don’t worry – our practice offers a number of alternatives that can restore function and aesthetics of your smile, including implant supported dentures. To find out which restorative dentistry option may be best for your unique needs and goals, please contact us today to schedule an appointment with Drs. Coombs or Chiappetti.
