If you are in good oral health, with sufficient jawbone mass, implant dentistry provides a natural looking and durable solution to replacing a lost tooth or teeth. Here are some additional factors to consider:

  • Oral Health – If you are in good oral health, and there is adequate jawbone structure, you can probably have a tooth implant procedure.

  • Dental Hygiene Habits – When the patient is committed to regular dental care, including brushing, flossing, and routine dental exams, dental tooth implants are highly successful (up to 95%).

  • Age – Regardless of age, implant dentistry is an excellent solution, whether you are young, middle-aged, or a senior. For children, dental tooth implants are usually postponed until the jawbone is mature. However, there are instances when a tooth implant procedure might be part of a child’s orthodontic treatment.

  • Periodontal Disease – Patients who have lost their teeth due to periodontal disease or decay are excellent candidates for successful implant dentistry.
