How do I know if I'm a good candidate for dental implants?

We generally consider anyone with a healthy gumline and jawbone a good candidate for dental implants. An implant requires a healthy jawbone for placement and healthy gums to help protect the bone and implant.

Patients considering implants should also be devoted to the maintenance of good oral health. Dental hygiene and regular dental visits are necessary to provide an implant the foundation it needs to work and survive. Other health conditions, such as a history of heart disease or diabetes, can affect a person's implant candidacy.

We can provide you a evaluation to determine if an implant is right for you.
