WHAT ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS?
Dental implants are the best long-term solution for missing teeth. We use a medical-grade titanium implant fixture that actually fuses to living bone, and place a permanent crown on the implant, resulting in teeth that look and feel completely natural.
Can anyone get dental implants?
In most cases yes, we have to make sure that there are no medical contraindications like uncontrolled diabetes. Smoking is also a relative contraindication.
A special x-ray called a cone beam CT will be the first step where we can determine from it if there is enough bone volume to place dental implants.
