The Boston cosmetic dentists at Pinnacle Dental Aesthetics often recommend dental implants for patients who have lost teeth. Replacing missing teeth is vital, as it allows you to prevent the series of significant complications that arise from lost teeth.
The dental implant procedure is commonly performed and possesses an excellent safety record. Cosmetic dentists have found that most patients with missing teeth can be helped by dental implants.
However, dental implants are not for everyone. An ideal candidate for dental implants:
- Possesses good general and dental health
- Has enough jaw bone to support implants
- Has a jaw bone that is fully developed
- Has healthy gum tissue
- Is committed to sound oral hygiene
- Does not smoke
- Is not pregnant
Our cosmetic dentists will evaluate you closely to determine if you are a good candidate for dental implants. If you are, you can rest assured that your implants will be strong, sturdy and long-lasting.
