Dental implants have rapidly become the most popular option for adults missing some or all of their teeth. Odds are that if you’re healthy enough to undergo routine dental procedures, you are likely a good candidate for dental implants.

Candidates for Dental Implants

Dental implants would be suitable for those who:

  • Currently wear dentures – Implants serve as a more stable replacement for dentures. They can also be used to help stabilize and secure your dentures.
  • Suffer from bone loss – Implants can help prevent bone loss caused by missing teeth. They can also preserve your facial structure in the event of tooth and bone loss.
  • Have been diagnosed with gum disease – If your teeth were lost because of gum disease, you are a good candidate for dental implants.

If you suffer from a chronic disease, extra precautions may need to be taken for your dental implants. If you use tobacco products, we strongly encourage the cessation of these products before your implant procedure.

For information about the candidacy of dental implants, or if it’s time for a dental cleaning and a checkup, please contact Auburn Family Dental. Our general dental office is located here in Wichita, Kansas.
