Living with missing teeth can impact your ability to eat, speak, and socialize properly but the effects don’t end there. Missing teeth can have a detrimental effect on your overall health and increase your risk for additional tooth loss, bone loss, periodontal diseases, and more. Dr. Kosinski recommends dental implants to restore your smile to full function and protection.
Dental implants are designed to replace your missing tooth from root to crown and are surgically implanted into your jawbone giving them superior durability. They are the only dental restoration that actively prevents bone deterioration and regrows jawbone. Dental implants look and function just like natural teeth, making them a highly recommended restoration option.
Read on to learn more about candidacy for dental implants.
During your initial consultation, Dr. Kosinski will conduct a thorough examination to ensure you’re a good candidate for dental implants. No two patients are the same which means we’ll never recommend a one-size-fits-all treatment for you. Based on your unique situation, Dr. Kosinski may recommend dental implants to help restore your smile.
Dental implants may be the right solution for you, if:
Dental implants never have to be removed due to them being surgically placed into the jawbone. Dental implants have a 90-95% success rate which is why they are highly recommended. The success is determined by your jaw strength, oral health, and your body’s ability to heal and following a thorough examination, Dr. Kosinski will be able to determine if dental implants are a suitable option for you.
Dental implants may not be the right solution for you, if:
If you have an underlying health problem such as an autoimmune disorder, diabetes, cancer, or take any medications which weaken your immune system, Dr. Kosinski may recommend an alternative option.
Depending on your unique situation, you may still qualify for dental implants with a supplemental procedure. If lack of jawbone density or gum recession is what disqualifies you supplemental procedures are used to ensure you have enough jawbone or gum tissue so that you can have a successful implant process.
