Even though there have been so many updates to dental care procedures, many people still suffered from the loss of their teeth, due to injury, decaying teeth, and periodontal disease. Bridges and dentures were the only options to replace missing teeth for many years, that was until dental implants came about.
What are dental implants you ask? Dental implants are replacements of roots of your teeth. A dentist in Lafayette, CA can assist you with making sure you are a great candidate for dental implants.
Who Is A Candidate For Dental Implants?
In most case scenarios, anyone who can have oral surgery or simple extractions is a good candidate for dental implants. You must have enough bone and healthy gums to support the implant. Regular dental visits and daily oral hygiene is a must. Patients with uncontrolled chronic disorder such as heart disease and diabetes must be seen on an individual basis.
