Am I a good candidate for dental implants?

Almost anybody can be a good candidate for dental implants as a permanent tooth restoration procedure. 

If you have one or more missing teeth in Tampa, FL, dental implants may be the perfect answer for you. Utilizing thin, biocompatible titanium posts that anchor to your jaw bone and replace your tooth root, dental implants look natural and blend into your smile. 

Who Is a Good Candidate for Dental Implants? dental implant in a teeth mold

Using digital x-rays, Dr. Bellegarrigue can determine the jaw bone density necessary for supporting a dental implant. If there is prevalent bone loss, Dr. Bellegarrigue may recommend bone grafting therapy to support the dental implant. We will go through all your oral options during your dental appointment to help you make an informed decision regarding your dental health and tooth function. 

Not everyone is a candidate for every dental procedure, Dr. Bellegarrigue will take into account your oral health history, your current dental needs, and your smile goals before making any recommendations. In some cases, preoperative dental work may be needed to set the stage for permanent change.
