What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are titanium fixtures inserted into the jawbone for a stable and permanent tooth loss solution. Implant fixtures are designed to mimic tooth roots and prevent your jawbone from deteriorating. Since dental implants can complete your smile, you won’t have to worry about your teeth shifting. You can be confident in knowing that your teeth will last for years to come.
We can complete your restoration with either a ceramic crown or a partial denture. Dr. Yang will determine which restoration is most beneficial for you at your initial consultation as well as answer any questions you may have about the procedure.
Who’s a Candidate for Dental Implants?
Dental implants are an ideal treatment option for patients looking to complete their healthy smiles. Dr. Yang may recommend implants to patients suffering from:
- One or more missing teeth
- Damaged teeth due to injury or decay
- Severely decayed teeth
- Ill-fitting dentures or bridges
Candidacy for implants also depends on a patient’s jawbone density and oral health. Patients may be ineligible for an implant procedure if they lack sufficient bone density or have an underlying oral health issue, such as periodontal (gum) disease.
Dr. Yang will assess your teeth, gums, and jawbone during your initial consultation to determine if you qualify for dental implants. If he discovers insufficient jawbone density or an oral health issue, he’ll diagnose and treat the problem with a supplemental procedure to improve your implant candidacy.
