It’s time you finally found out whether dental implants could replace your missing teeth.dental implants

Are you missing one or more of your natural teeth? Are you an adult looking for a long-term replacement that will look and feel like a real tooth? If so, then you shouldn’t wait any longer to talk to our Providence, RI, dentists, Drs. Lawrence and Marc Page, about how dental implants could help revive your smile.

What is a dental implant?

If you have been looking for a restoration that functions similarly to a real tooth then your wish has been granted. Dental implants are small posts that are meant to function like tooth roots. They are even placed into the jawbone, where over the course of several months the implant and jawbone will fuse together (this phenomenon is known as osseointegration). Implants are the only tooth replacement that offers this amazing and long-term benefit. Not even dentures or dental bridges can do this!

Who is a good candidate for implants?

Of course, not everyone will be an ideal candidate for this restorative treatment. This is why you will need to schedule a consultation with our Providence general dentists to find out if your smile could benefit from implants. Some factors that determine your candidacy include:

Your Oral Health

If you have a healthy mouth that is a free of diseases and you have a strong jawbone then implants could be the best option for you. We will need to perform X-rays to check the extent of your jawbone deterioration (a complication of tooth loss) and to make sure that you aren’t dealing with untreated gum disease or cavities.

Your Overall Health

How healthy you are in general will also determine whether or not you should get implants. If you are dealing with any chronic health problems we will need to make sure that they are well controlled before you get implants, as health problems could end up affecting your recovery process.

Whether You Smoke

Do you smoke or use tobacco products? If so, then you may want to consider another option for replacing your missing tooth or teeth. Smoking not only impedes the healing process but it can also lead to implant failure. If you are a smoker but really want implants then you’ll want to quit the habit before getting this restoration.
