Dental implants may be the right solution for you, if:
You want the freedom you get with a permanent restoration
Unlike alternative restorations such as dentures, dental implants won’t come out or shift around because they’re a permanent part of your smile. Eating should be fun. You don’t want to spend your time worrying about what you can or can’t eat. Dental implants give you the freedom to live on your own terms.
You want a restoration designed to last a lifetime
No other restorative treatment offers the longevity you get with dental implants, which are designed to last a lifetime if properly cared for. Dental implants are the best investment in your long-term oral health.
You want to improve your overall wellbeing and confidence
Dental implants stabilize your smile by holding your natural teeth in place and stimulating healthy jawbone growth. If retaining your youthful appearance for as long as possible is something you value, dental implants could be for you.
You’re ready to dine and socialize without worrying about your smile
As a permanent part of your smile, dental implants are extremely durable, and they vastly improve your chewing power and speaking ability. Are you ready to go back to eating steak and corn-on-the-cob without anxiety?
Frequently Asked Questions
Can children get dental implants?
No — children’s jawbones are still growing, and placing dental implants in a jaw that’s not done growing can lead to misalignment over time. Until a patient’s jawbone is fully developed, they won’t be a candidate for dental implants.
If I have gum disease, can I still get dental implants?
If you have gum disease, we’ll need to eliminate the infection in order to move forward with the dental implant process. Gum disease interferes with your jawbone’s ability to heal around the titanium implant fixture, causing the procedure to fail. At your consultation, Dr. Alfano can discuss supplemental procedures for eliminating gum disease before starting your dental implant treatment.
