If you are missing teeth, you’ve probably already heard something about your options for replacements. Otherwise, you wouldn’t be looking for information on dental implants. You might think that they are relatively new as far as tooth replacement options go, and that they’ve been growing in popularity for years. What you might not know is that they have several quality of life benefits over other replacement options, they’re permanent, and new processes are making more and more patients candidates for dental implants.

Advantages to Quality of Life 

Dental implants are permanent and fixed, which means you don’t have to worry about removing them to clean them. You also don’t have to worry about scheduling appointments for new fittings or replacements. As long as the dental implant is not damaged, it will last forever. Dental implants are anchored with titanium anchors to make them exceptionally stable, making them an excellent long-term solution. This strength is also how dental implants manage to give patients back functionality. You can eat with confidence, even when food is relatively touch or crunchy.

Are You a Candidate for Dental Implants?

Most patients who need to replace missing teeth are candidates for dental implant procedures, but there are some considerations to make:

  • Do you have other major health problems that would make surgical procedures inadvisable?
  • Are you missing a large amount of gum and jaw tissue from advanced periodontal disease?
  • Do you have health complications that would interfere with anesthesia?

If the answer to all three questions is a no, then you’re very likely to be a candidate for implants. You need to talk to a dentist in Colorado Springs, CO to be certain.
