Am I a good candidate for dental implants?
Dental implants are an attractive way to replace a missing tooth. They are also sometimes used to support a bridge that replaces several missing teeth. To be a good candidate for dental implants, you should meet the following criteria:
- You have good health overall and good oral health
- You have enough bone in your jaw to support the implant
- Your gum tissue is healthy and mostly free of gum disease
- You are looking for a permanent solution for your missing tooth
