Implants are one of the best ways to replace a missing tooth. There are other options, like leaving the gap in your teeth alone or getting a bridge or denture. However, with the incredible technology available today, dental implants are definitely one of the best options available. So, how do you qualify? When you go in for a consultation regarding your dental implant qualifications, make sure you provide a complete and thorough medical history to your dentist.
Additionally, they will require that you have a CT scan so that your dentist can see a full image of your jawbone and its structure. A dental implant refers to the screw that is drilled into your jawbone, and which holds the crown, or tooth, once the process is complete. If you are approved to receive a dental implant, that’s great! Expect the entire process to take several appointments, over the course of a few months. In the instance that you are not approved for an implant, that’s okay! Your dentist will advise you on the best solution for the gap in your teeth.
