Missing teeth are no fun, and while you could get partial dentures or a fixed bridge to restore them, by far the best option is to get dental implants, which look, feel, and act just like real teeth. At Parkland Smile Dental, you can depend on expert placement of these outstanding replacements for the teeth you no longer have. So long as you meet a few basic qualifications, you’re on the road to a full smile once more.
Nearly anyone is eligible for dentures and bridges, and that’s because they simply lay on top of your gums, held in either with dental adhesive or cement. With our Parkland implants, though, you have a new tooth that is very much like one of your natural ones. Implants are anchored in your jaw by a titanium post that serves the same role as a root. In order for you to be a good candidate, your jaw must be tested to ensure that it meets the necessary standards. Your gums should also be generally in good health. And a few other circumstances can have an affect on your eligibility. Among them are being diabetic or a smoker. Such factors do not necessarily prevent you from getting our Parkland implants, but they create a need for our dentist to do a thorough checkup before pronouncing you ready to get them. In many cases, even obstacles such as unhealthy gums, a thin or weak jaw bone, and smoking can be overcome, so there is every reason to come in for an evaluation and consultation. Once you get an implant, you can expect it to last for a long time, even for life with proper maintenance.
