Who Is a Good Candidate for Affordable Dental Implants?

dca-blog_article-47_best-dental-implants-give-back-smile

Affordable dental implants have provided a better option for replacing missing teeth, and many people can have them placed soon after tooth loss or extraction. Implants are titanium rods or posts that are placed into the jawbone to anchor artificial teeth. The procedure can be performed under a local anesthetic, and unlike a dental bridge, it never requires any preparation or changes made to neighboring teeth. With modern implant dentures, patients can smile with confidence instead of worrying about problems associated with traditional dentures.

Implant Dentures Have a Successful History
To understand how successful dental implants are, just look at their history. Over the past 30 years, hundreds of thousands of implants have been placed. More than 90 percent of them were successful. In the rare cases where implants fail, or dentists are unable to place them, the problem is usually caused by a lack of adequate healthy jawbone in which to place the post. Dental implants are usually successful after procedures to improve bone stability are performed.

The Best Candidates for Dental Implants
The chances of being a good candidate for implants are extremely high for virtually everyone. Few medical problems prevent their use. Age is usually not a factor, even when osteoporosis is present. In fact, implants strengthen and stabilize the remaining bone in your mouth where teeth have been lost. Placement of single and multiple implants are possible options, and implants can even be used to support an overdenture. Whether you are a teenager or a senior in your nineties, the best dental implants can give your smile a beautiful makeover.
