The 411 on Front Dental Implants

Dental Implants | Stockton CATypically when you think of dental implants, you likely associate them with molars that reside in the back of your mouth and are unseen. And although dental implants are in fact used to for molars that have had to be removed either to injury or decay, dental implants can also be used in the front of your mouth as well. If you have recently found out that you have to have your front teeth removed due to extreme dental decay or injury, then you may want to consider getting front dental implants from Dr. Janice Scott. Read on to learn more.

What is a front tooth implant?
There are many different ways that you can help to aesthetically restore your smile once you have teeth that have fallen out. From dental bridges to simply wearing a retainer that has a false tooth attached to it, you can help restore your appearance without having to undergo surgery. However, because these solutions are merely temporary, you aren’t necessarily restoring your natural ability to chew. That’s where a front tooth implant comes into play. By being surgically implanted into your gums, your ability to chew will be restored in virtually no time at all.

Who is a good candidate?
In order to be a deemed a good candidate for dental implants, you must first schedule a consultation with Dr. Janice Scott. During your consultation a physical exam will be conducted along with x-rays. Both of these tools will help Dr. Janice Scott determine whether or not your bones are strong enough to maintain the dental implants and keep them in place. If for some reason you have experienced bone loss or if your bones simply are too weak to hold an implant, then you and Dr. Janice Scott can discuss other alternatives. If you are deemed to be a good candidate for dental implants, however, then you and Dr. Janice Scott can schedule an appointment to help get you on your way towards having a perfect smile once again.
