A dental implant is a metal (usually titanium) rod implanted into the jaw bone to replace the missing root. The crown and supporting structure are securely and permanently attached to the rod. Titanium is amazingly strong and extremely well tolerated by the human body. There are very few instances of rejection.
Tooth implants offer a long-term solution to tooth loss. Are you a good candidate for tooth implant surgery?
Because the metal rod is anchored into the jaw bone, it is essential that you have enough healthy bone at the implant site. The Plano Dentist professionals can determine if you do. Age is rarely a factor; dental implants have proven to be successful for people of all ages.
There are a few medical issues that may affect your eligibility for implants. These include diabetes, osteoporosis, radiation therapy for cancer, parathyroid disorders, bone disorders and leukemia. The presence of one or more of these conditions does not necessarily mean an implant cannot work for you. We’ll discuss any health issues during your implant consultation.
