Are you a candidate for dental implants?
Typically, if you are healthy enough to undergo the treatment necessary for fixed bridgework or routine tooth extractions, the same person generally can undergo dental implant procedures. Sometimes, patients may have general health conditions that would contraindicate implant procedures, although this is unusual.
Dr. Adams will determine the best form of implant for you after a thorough examination. The amount and location of available bone is usually the major factor as to the size and length of the implant used, or whether you are a good candidate.
