Am I a Candidate for Dental Implants?Improve your life with dental implants.
Missing teeth are a nuisance and can have a big impact on your smile and your overall health. Replacing missing teeth with dental implants is one of the best ways to maintain your oral health and the functioning of your bite throughout the rest of your life. Advancements in implant technology and procedures, including HYBRIDGE® dental implant restorations and All-on-4® implant dentures, make almost everyone a candidate for dental implants. Visit Dr. George Evans, a dental implant dentist in Randallstown, MD, to see if implants are the right solution for you.
Candidates with Multiple Missing Teeth
While dental implants are very effective at replacing individual teeth, they can also be used to replace multiple teeth or even an entire upper or lower arch of teeth. If you currently have a dental bridge or multiple adjacent missing teeth, a dental implant dentist can use implants to offer a more stable, permanent replacement for those missing teeth. If you wear traditional dentures, Dr. Evans can use implants to support your appliances, giving you a natural, secure bite.
Candidates with Bone Loss
Over time, the jaw bone begins to deteriorate when teeth are missing. In the past, bone loss has kept some patients from being candidates for dental implants. However, with today’s advanced procedures, most patients are candidates for dental implant surgery regardless of their bone loss, since techniques such as All-on-4® allow Dr. Evans to utilize the areas with the greatest amount of bone tissue. Bone grafting can also be used to prepare candidates for implantation.
