Would Dental Implants Help Me?

Find out if you are the perfect candidate for this tooth-loss solution.dental implants

Are you an adult who is dealing with tooth loss? If so, then chances are good that you are doing a little online research to find out more about the restorations out there that could replace your missing teeth. Let our Bridgeport, CT, family dentist Dr. Adriana Torena tell you more about dental implants and how they could give you back the gorgeous smile you want.

How do implants work?

This restoration is the only tooth replacement that actually naturally fuses together with the bone and tissue in your mouth. An implant may look like nothing more than a small metal screw or post but it can actually replace your missing tooth’s roots. While this might not seem important, the roots of your teeth are important for the health of your jawbone.

When you lose teeth, the jawbone also is impacted, causing it to deteriorate over time. By surgically placing an implant into the jawbone we can prevent bone loss and also provide a long-term foundation from which to support one or more false teeth.

Am I a candidate for dental implants?

There are some factors that will certainly affect your candidacy for getting dental implants. Of course, you’ll be happy to hear that most healthy individuals dealing with tooth loss can benefit from what implants have to offer. Here are some ways to tell whether you are right for dental implants:

Your health:

This goes for both your oral and general health. Our Bridgeport, CT, dentist will need to thoroughly examine your mouth to make sure that there isn’t any gum disease or decay present, as these issues will need to be addressed before getting an implant.

Your age:

Implants are a great option for adults dealing with tooth loss; however, this restoration isn’t ideal for children or teens dealing with permanent tooth loss. This is because the jawbone of a child or young teen is still developing. If we were to place an implant into a still-developing jawbone it would stunt its growth.

Your lifestyle:

Smoking can greatly increase your chances of implant failure and poor hygiene can also affect the health of your implant. We want your implant to last the rest of your life, so your habits and lifestyle will affect your new restoration.
