There are 120 million Americans who are missing one or more teeth, and that number is growing tremendously year after year. Dental implants have become a revolutionary solution to replace missing or damaged teeth. Dr. Kosinski will make sure your health gets put first throughout your oral restoration process.
Like many other procedures conducted by doctors and dentists, there are certain characteristics that ensure your procedure will have the highest chance of success. For dental implants, dentists look for:
Some patients that might not do well with dental implants are women who are pregnant, diabetics, children who have not developed full bone growth in the jaw, patients with serious underlying health conditions, patients undergoing cancer treatment, smokers, patients with uncontrolled gum disease, and patients with substance abuse problems.
Many doctors and dentists look at each patient and their total circumstances before deciding if they will successfully heal from insertion of dental implants. If you’re not a good candidate for dental implants, check out our supplemental procedures for a possible alternative treatment option best for you.
The best place to start is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Kosinski at our Bingham Farms office. This will allow us to examine your mouth, take x-rays, and talk about your health history. If you are a good candidate for dental implants, our goal is to ensure you feel safe and comfortable through every step of your restoration process.
