Are You a Candidate?


Healthy gums and jawbone

In order for dental implants to be successful, your gums and jawbone must be healthy. Gum disease and jawbone loss can compromise the stability of the implant.


Sufficient bone density

Dental implants require a certain amount of bone density in order to be securely anchored in the jaw. If you do not have enough bone, a bone graft may be necessary prior to implant placement.


Good overall health

Dental implant surgery is a minor surgical procedure that requires anesthesia. If you have any underlying medical conditions, your dentist will need to evaluate if you are healthy enough to undergo the procedure.


No smoking or tobacco use

Smoking and tobacco use can decrease the success rate of dental implant surgery. If you smoke, your dentist may recommend that you quit prior to the procedure.

If you meet the above criteria, dental implants may be an excellent option for you. Dental Views offers a variety of dental implant options, including single-tooth implants, implant-supported bridges, and implant-supported dentures.

During your initial consultation, our smile experts will evaluate your oral health and determine if dental implants are the best choice for you. They will also explain the implant process, including the placement of the implant, the healing process, and the restoration process.

Here are some common reasons why a patient may need dental implants:


Missing teeth

If a patient is missing one or more teeth, dental implants can be the perfect replacement. Implants are a permanent solution that look and function like natural teeth.


Tooth decay

If a patient has severe tooth decay that cannot be repaired with a filling or crown, the tooth may need to be extracted. Dental implants can be used to replace the missing tooth.


Gum disease

Gum disease can cause the gums to recede and the teeth to become loose or fall out. Dental implants can be used to replace the missing teeth and restore the patient's smile.


Injury or trauma

If a patient has suffered an injury or trauma to the mouth, they may need dental implants to replace missing teeth.


Bite alignment

If a patient has missing teeth, it can cause their bite to become misaligned. Dental implants can be used to replace the missing teeth and restore the patient's bite alignment.

Overall, dental implants are a versatile and effective solution for a variety of dental problems. At Dental Views, we are committed to providing our patients with high-quality dental care.
