Hands Down, the Best Tooth Replacement Option
Permanent dental implants are the ideal tooth replacement available to individuals who are missing teeth.
Are you too old for an implant?
Age is rarely a factor. Dental implants have proven to be successful for people of all ages. They have a successful track record of several decades.
A permanent dental implant is a metal (usual titanium) post implanted into the bone to replace the missing root. The crown and supporting structure are securely and permanently attached to the post.
Titanium is Strong and Biocompatible
Titanium is amazingly sturdy and extremely well tolerated by the human body. There are very few instances of rejection.
An Implant Can Last The Rest of Your Life
Tooth implants offer a long-term solution to tooth loss.
Are you an appropriate candidate for tooth implant surgery?
Because the metal rod is anchored into the jaw bone, it is important that you have enough healthy bone at the implant site. Dr. Acton can determine if you do.
Talk to an Implant Dentist About Medical Issues
There are a few health concerns that may influence 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 does not necessarily mean an implant cannot work for you.
Discuss any health problems with Dr. Acton during your dental implant consultation.
