Here are the general characteristics Dr. Kirsch and his team prefer in dental implant patients:
Despite wanting to fix your smile, you may not immediately be ready for placement of dental implants. Patients that may require additional consideration for dental implants are:
PLEASE NOTE: Having one of these characteristics does not necessarily mean you cannot get dental implants. Doctors prefer to examine each patient and their individual circumstances prior to making any decisions about dental implant candidacy. In many cases, a supplemental procedure can help restore your oral health and improve your candidacy for the treatment.
Now you know what makes a good candidate for dental implants, here are some of the advantages to choosing this method over other tooth replacement treatments:
Get The Freedom To Eat, Speak, And Smile Comfortably
Dentures and other tooth replacement treatments can make it hard to eat, speak, or be comfortable with your smile. But with dental implants, you can eat what you want, speak better, and look better. Further, you can clean your implants with your brush, so no more messy adhesives and tough cleanings.
Missing teeth can ruin your self-esteem, confidence, and self-worth. But dental implants look and feel like real teeth, so patients no longer have anything to be ashamed of. With your new smile, you can laugh, smile, and feel good about the way your teeth look.
Regain A Great Smile
When your entire tooth is replaced, including the root, the look, feel, and function of a natural tooth is restored. Moreover, the strong, stable foundation allows for enhanced comfort when eating and speaking. No one even needs to know you have an artificial tooth except you and your dentist.
Reduce Jawbone Deterioration
When natural teeth are severely damaged or missing, there is nothing left in the jawbone to stimulate critical bone growth. Next, the human body senses that the jawbone is no longer necessary and begins to move the minerals to other parts of the body. This deterioration can quickly result in facial collapse. There is a solution though. One major benefit to dental implants is that they preserve the density of the jawbone, while preventing deterioration of the facial structure, and improving appearance.
Improve Oral Health
When patients are missing teeth, plaque, food particles, and bacteria collect in the empty spaces. This can result in an increased risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral health issues. By filling these spaces, patients can reduce plaque, bacteria, and other substances in the mouth. This then reduces the risk of oral health problems.
Take Advantage Of Easy Dental Hygiene
Caring for dental implants is just as easy as caring for natural teeth. Just be sure to brush and floss regularly, and visit your dentist for check-ups.
Eliminate Health Problems Associated With Poor Oral Health
Recent studies have shown that poor oral health is linked to heart attacks, strokes, Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, and other chronic diseases. Dental implants will immediately improve the health of your mouth and this may improve your overall health.
