Are dental implants right for me?
If you’re seeking a long-term option for tooth replacement, you may want to consider dental implants. Implants have many benefits including:
- An attractive, natural appearance – no one will know you have an implant unless you tell them!
- Maximum comfort while chewing, talking, and eating
- Stimulation of the jaw bone by the implant, which helps you maintain proper bone density
Ask Dr. Kainth if you’re eligible for implant surgery. During this surgery, the base of a dental implant is placed in the bone of your jaw. For the surgery to be successful, a healthy level of density in the bone is needed for proper support.
If you have poor bone density, you may need some special treatment before you can receive an implant. Sometimes, bone grafting is required prior to surgery. Dr. Kainth can evaluate the state of your bone density and make a recommendation for how to proceed with your treatment.
If you have a missing tooth, there may be more than one viable option regarding how to replace it. The right method for your situation depends on several factors including your level of wellness, your personal preference, and cost.
We often recommend dental implants as the leading form of tooth replacement. Dr. Kainth is extremely skilled at performing dental implant surgery, and our patients have been very pleased with their results.
