Dental implants have helped numerous Americans restore their smiles. The American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons estimates that between 100,000 to 300,000 implants are placed each year. You may be a candidate for this very common procedure.

Why Dental Implants?
When there is a gap in the smile caused by a missing tooth, or a tooth is coming loose due to dental disease, there is no better solution than a permanent one. An implant is surgically placed in the jaw, so it keeps the bone tissue strong. It is a smart choice for your long-term, overall dental health. With regular maintenance (brushing and flossing), implants will last about as long as your other teeth. Dental implants also give you a feeling of certainty that you don’t always get from denture devices.
Are You in Need of Implants?
If you have an imperfect smile due to a missing tooth, or a tooth that has become compromised due to dental disease, you may be in urgent need of implants. The sooner you visit your New London dentist for implants after tooth loss, the better. Even if you lose a row of teeth, dental implants can help. An implant-supported bridge or denture can be custom-created in this case.
Are You a Candidate?
To find out if you’re a candidate for dental implants, your dentist must do a thorough examination of your teeth and gums using X-rays and a visual check of the condition of your gums. There has to be sufficient bone tissue beneath the gumline for tooth implants to work. Bone grafting may help improve your chances of being a candidate for this procedure.
