Dental implants have never been as stable and accessible as they are today. If you’re looking for a real solution to restore the gaps in your smile from missing teeth, you might be perfect for dental implants. The only way to be sure is to meet with a highly qualified implant dentist like Dr. Michael Kirsch.
Dental implants are the most viable smile restoration process. They are custom-made to look and feel like your natural teeth. Dental implants are also the only smile restoration treatment that counteracts the damage caused by missing teeth. They are able to do this because they stimulate healthy jawbone growth, while they keep your remaining natural teeth in place.
Even if your dental health isn’t perfect, dental implants could still be for you. Depending on what your Sebring dentist recommends, supplemental treatments might need to be completed before you start the dental implant process.
When you meet with Dr. Kirsch for your consultation, he’ll give you a dental exam and discuss the treatment options available to you.
Cavities, bone loss, or gum disease are examples of conditions that can be treated to make you an eligible candidate for dental implants. For example, patients suffering from gum disease can be treated with something as simple as antibiotics, or through a process called soft tissue grafting. Tissue grafting or tissue augmentation is a process where Dr. Kirsch will take healthy gum tissue from one part of your mouth and use it to repair the damaged gums.
There are some cases where a patient isn’t eligible for dental implants but will be in the future. One example is with patients who haven’t stopped growing yet. If your child is under the age of 18, you should call and speak with Dr. Kirsch to determine when it’s ideal to start the process.
Pregnant women are also advised to avoid any elective surgery. However, the implant process can continue afterward.
Tobacco use, substance abuse, and heavy drinking are all factors that could affect the healing process and decrease your chance of successful dental implants. All of the above must stop before starting the dental implant process.
