Am I a candidate for dental implants?
Almost anyone who has lost a tooth, several teeth or even all of their teeth is a candidate for dental implants. In fact, the profession has undergone great advances in the capabilities of dental restoration. Conventional restorative dental crowns, bridges, partial and full dentures are now considered old-fashioned and obsolete compared to the more successful treatment of dental implant–supported restorative dentistry.
Aesthetic presentation can be very important in our society. You may feel ashamed of a missing front tooth. In many cases, the use of crowns, bridges, and partial dentures don’t present an acceptable solution. A dental implant is very natural in appearance. Current implant restorative techniques are the best alternative to your original teeth!
Of course, each patient has specific needs. Dr. Tim Stirneman fully evaluates each candidate to determine the most appropriate plan of dental treatment. He assess patients’ specific dental conditions and determines the treatment approach that will provide the best long-term functional and aesthetic results.
Although you will discuss and evaluate any medical conditions with the All Smiles Dental team before surgery, Dr. Stirneman has provided dental implants for patients suffering from diabetes, cancer, heart disease, and patients who take multiple medications.
