Time to Consider Dental Implants?

Studies from the American College of Prosthodontics reveal that about 130 million Americans have at least one missing tooth. Dental implants are a fixed and long-lasting replacement solution and completely restore the shape and function of missing teeth.

Dr. Peng at iSmile Digital Design Center in Columbus, Ohio, is very experienced in providing modern dental treatment and procedures, including dental implants. 

What to Consider Before Getting a Dental Implant 

If you have one or more missing teeth and are not keen on getting a bridge or a denture, a dental implant may be the right solution for you. Dental implants replace lost teeth fully in terms of both appearance and function.

Here are a few things to consider before getting a dental implant that the dentist will also evaluate before the procedure:

  • Good Jawbone Health

Your jawbone needs to be healthy and dense enough to support the implant. The greater the number of teeth to be replaced, the more your jawbone health will impact the success of the procedure.

  • Healthy Tissue 

Another aspect to consider for the success of the dental implant procedure is whether there is healthy tissue at and around the implant site. 

  • Good Overall Health

Your general health also needs to be good, with no specific conditions affecting bone health.

  • Quit Smoking

Smoking can affect the success of the dental implant procedure and cause complications. Therefore, you should quit smoking before getting a dental implant. 

  • Time Commitment

The dental implant process is spread out over a few months. It involves tooth extraction and the healing of the socket, placing the implant and its absorption into the bone, and placing the crown to complete the restoration. Therefore, before you consider getting a dental implant, it’s important to consider the length of the process and be committed to it.

With advancements in dental materials and techniques, the success rate of dental implants has considerably increased in the last few years. Dental implants are now the ideal solution for replacing lost natural teeth.
