Do you have gaps in your smile from missing teeth? Do you want a more confident smile? Have you been searching for an alternative to traditional dentures? If so, you might qualify as a candidate for implant dentistry. At New Image Dental Implant Center in Denver, CO we perform implant dentistry for patients of all ages, however we suggest that children wait until their jawbone is fully-grown. Dental implants are one of the most effective options for tooth-replacement. Implant Dentistry success rates increase for candidates with the following criteria:
- Good Overall Health: Patients with good overall health generally experience higher success rates with implant dentistry. Smoking has been shown to decrease the chances of successful placement.
- Good Dental Health: While the skilled placement of the dental implant is important for success, daily oral hygiene determines longevity. Daily flossing, brushing, and routine cleanings can make a dental implant last a lifetime.
- Jawbone Strength: A dental implant needs a strong jawbone to anchor to in order to support a dental crown, bridge, or dentures.
- Dentures: If you are frustrated with the slipping and sliding of your traditional dentures, implant-supported dentures provide a wonderful alternative for a complete and beautiful smile.
