Are You a Candidate for Dental Implants?

Tooth implants have taken the world of dentistry to a whole new level, now there is hope for those who have lost a considerable number of teeth without having to compromise aesthetics, functionality and durability.

But is this option for everyone?

For a person to be a good candidate for a tooth implant, he needs to have healthy gums and enough bone to anchor the implants in the jaw. Since the jaw bone decreases naturally after a tooth is lost, bone grafting can be done in order to rebuild the bone. Also a good candidate is one who commits to a strict regime of dental hygiene.

At Prisma Dental we understand the psychological effects of tooth loss and we also know how much it means for our patients to “regain” their teeth back.

With tooth implants it is possible; you will no longer avoid social situations because of lost teeth and you will also be able to eat your favorite foods again.

We made it a point from the start that we wanted to have a team of laboratory technicians, dentists and oral surgeons under one roof. You see, in order to create a new smile we need a whole team working for you in order to save you time and in order to have each process under control.

The first thing you need to do if you are considering to have implants is to make an appointment with us for a preliminary examination. We will need to have access to your medical and dental histories and we will also need to take a computed tomography scan and x-rays. The CT scan will give us all the information we need to know about your jaw such as bone density and shape; it will also give us a clear picture of your nerves and sinuses.

After these exams, we will be able to study your specific case in detail and we can also go over your options, budget, queries and possible consequences of the procedures.
