dental implant benefits

Could I Benefit From Dental Implants?

Implants are often suggested to people who have lost one or more teeth. You may be a good candidate for this procedure if you meet the following conditions:

Key takeaways:

  • There is enough bone in your jaw to support the implants.
  • You are not diabetic or a smoker.
  • You have not worn dentures for a long period of time.

The final decision lies with your dentist, who will perform the necessary examinations to find out if you’re a good candidate for implants. Implant-supported dentures are an option.
