Dental implants may work for you if you have one or more teeth missing, your jawbone has reached full adult growth, and you’re willing to commit several months to the implant process. Other times when dental implants might be a good dental solution include:
When gum tissue is healthy
When bone density is adequate to support an implant
When a patient wants to speak more clearly
When a patient wants to eat and chew easily
When a patient does not want to wear dentures
When the patient does not use tobacco
Grandview Center for Dentistry wants you to have a full, functional smile that you are proud to show off. Though implants are more of a marathon than a sprint, they do provide a permanent, beautiful solution for missing teeth. If you have questions or concerns about dental implants, get in touch with your Edina dentist today!
