If you want to replace your missing teeth, why not choose the very best and most beneficial option available? And that means our implants in Wethersfield. We at the office of Connecticut Family Dental Group will determine your eligibility for getting them.
Your gums and your jaws are key to your candidacy for our implants in Wethersfield. In general, so long as your gums are in healthy condition, you should be qualified. This can be ascertained with a simple visual inspection in most cases. Your jaw, however, requires testing. The bone there needs to be thick and strong enough to be able to effectively hold the implant that will be surgically placed there. If your jaw does not meet the necessary standard to to be eligible, you are not out of luck. Bone grafting is a procedure done to augment your existing jaw tissue. Bone is harvested from another part of your body and then transplanted into the jaw. New bone grows around it, which will strengthen it to the point where you can get our implants in Wethersfield. Your gums, too, can typically be treated if there are any issues that could disqualify you. What else factors into being considered a good candidate? Diabetes and smoking are two examples. When you come in for an examination, our dentist will be able to assess your overall suitability to get implants, and suggest ways to correct any obstacles that may exist. You’ll then be able to to enjoy all of the advantages that make implants such a fantastic choice. They look and feel like natural teeth. Perhaps more important, they act like them. You can speak and chew with 100% confidence.
Considering that an implant can last a lifetime with proper care, it’s well worth the minimal effort to find out if it’s the best tooth replacement option for you. Call us to arrange an appointment.
