Am I a candidate for dental implants?

Traditionally, if you had to have teeth pulled or were missing a tooth, dentists used a fixed dental “bridge” or removable denture to fill the space. While both of these are still commonly used, advancement in dental technology has provided us with a more predictable and often less invasive option to replace missing teeth. This option is known as a dental implant.

It is as simple as replacing your missing tooth with a titanium screw and a crown. We don’t have to treat perfectly healthy teeth on either side of the missing tooth as we do in a fixed bridge. Also, you don’t have to remove anything at night as you do with a removable denture.

Dr. Patel will perform a thorough exam and give you all the options for replacing any missing teeth and will also discuss which option he believes is the best in your particular case.
