About Dental Implants

When it comes to getting dental implants, you need to know what you are getting into before starting the procedure. There are many reasons that one may need to get implants, and they are not going to be the best alternative for everyone. If you have been considering getting implants to fill in gaps where you now have missing teeth, here are some important things about dental implants that you need to know.

Why You May Need Dental Implants

There are quite a few reasons that you may have lost some or all of your teeth. If you have faced any of the following, then you may be in need of dental implants to help fill your mouth with useful and beneficial teeth once more.

  • You had a root canal that failed, causing you to lose your tooth
  • You had some type of trauma to your mouth or teeth that caused tooth loss
  • One of many congenital defects that damaged your teeth or kept teeth from growing in
  • Gum disease caused your teeth to fall out
  • You had a tooth decay away
  • You had wear and tear that was beyond the normal amounts, causing you to have to remove one tooth or several teeth

What the Dental Implant Procedure Consists of

If you are seriously considering getting dental implants, you need to first call and schedule an appointment with your dentist. He or she will talk to you about what options you have, and then discuss the procedure of getting implants to you in greater detail. They will discuss how the implants are placed, the recovery time, and the cost of having the procedure done. Not everyone is a good candidate for dental implants, and if you have a very weak jaw bone, you may fall into that category. This is something you should speak to your dentist about as well, as he or she is going to know best whether your mouth is solid enough to hold the implants in place.
