Are Dental Implants Right for Me?

If you are missing one or several teeth or you are about to have one or more teeth extracted, dental implants are a great option for tooth replacement. Implants are quickly becoming one of the most popular tooth replacement methods because they are durable and look perfectly natural. Dr. Alexander Pritsky is a dentist in Fresno, CA, where he provides full dental services including dental implant restoration.

Why Choose Dental Implants?

Here are the top reasons that Fresno residents choose dental implants:

  • Unique replacement: Dental implants are the only option to replace the complete tooth. Although they have a crown, they don’t just provide a cosmetic substitute for a tooth, they even replace the root with their titanium post. This means that your jawbone is stimulated and continues to grow so you avoid bone erosion.
  • Solid and durable: Dental implants are built to last. If you maintain good oral hygiene standards and take care of your implants, they can last a lifetime. They are strong and don’t tend to crack or come loose.
  • Perfectly natural: Dental implants can be designed to match the size, shape, and color of your natural teeth, so no one will be able to tell the difference, not even you. What’s more, they are just as easy to maintain as your natural teeth.

Am I a Suitable Candidate for Dental Implants?

To be a suitable candidate, you will need:

  • To be over the age of 18
  • Good overall health
  • Healthy teeth and gums
  • A healthy jawbone to support the implants
  • To be a non-smoker or to stop smoking for at least three weeks before implant surgery
