Are Dental Implants Right for You?

dental implants stockton caWe get it. No matter how pleasant we try to make your appointment, it’s still not your favorite thing to do. Nobody wakes up thinking, “OOH! I can’t wait to go to the dentist today!” (We secretly hope some of you do, but know that’s not usually the case.) Good news, though. Not all appointments are a product of a painful tooth. Some patients come to see us just so they can look and feel their best!

Smiling has been shown to improve overall self-esteem and confidence, and beautiful teeth can help you smile more! For some, a beautiful smile involves a teeth cleaning or whitening procedure, but for others it could mean dental implants.

Modern Dental Implants look and feel more natural than ever. They are certainly not the implants you remember your grandparents having. If you are missing teeth, or have had problems with cavities in the past, implants might be the ideal solution! The best part about dental implants? They don’t rely on other teeth as support structures like bridges or dentures.

The best candidates for dental implants have healthy gums and jawbone so that we can secure the implants into the surrounding tissue. A thorough dental exam, x-rays, and perhaps even a CT scan can help determine if the implant structure can be supported.

There are a few questions to ask yourself to help determine if dental implants are right for you.

  • Am I missing teeth?
  • Do my dentures fit tightly and correctly?
  • Do my dentures require a lot of adhesive to keep them in place?
  • Do I dislike the visible clasps of my dentures?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you should consider a dental implant. These tooth replacements do not get cavities, and they are a natural way to boost your smile, confidence and self-esteem.

Take the first step to a better smile by giving us a call. We’re happy to discuss your options for dental implants, as well as other smile enhancing procedures to boost your confidence and give you the grin you’ve always dreamed of.
