Dental implants are a popular solution for those with missing teeth, but like all dental procedures, they aren't the right fit for every patient. However, advancements in oral health technology have made implants more feasible for a growing number of patients. Following are four important criteria for discerning who's a good implant candidate and who may benefit from other treatments.

Your Gums Are in Good Health

Patients who have gum tissue that's been damaged by periodontal disease or other types of oral conditions may not be the best implant candidates. The gum tissue needs to be strong and healthy in order for the implants to be able to be firmly secured in the patient's mouth and to remain in place afterwards.

You've Got Good Bone Density

Because implants mimic natural tooth roots, they work best in people with strong bone density. Those with minimal bone density may not have enough bone to adequately support the implants. However, there have been substantial improvements in implant technology in recent years that increase the success rate of implants in those with less than optimal bone density, so let your dental health care professional discuss what can work for you.

We were in an emergent situation after a playground accident/trauma and within 10 mins of calling and upon arrival, we were greeted, evaluated, and treated immediately on our first visit.
