Are dental implants right for me?

If you’re missing one or more teeth, probably so! Nearly anyone in good health whose jaw has finished growing is a candidate, whether they were simply born without a tooth or lost one or more teeth due to injury, decay, gum (periodontal) disease, infection or another reason. Dental implants also are a great option for patients who don’t want the drawbacks of, or can no longer wear, removable dentures.

The best way to determine if you are a candidate is to see a dental implant expert. Find an AAID credentialed implant dentist.

When you see the dentist, here are two important things to remember:

  • First and foremost, ask them if they are an AAID Credentialed implant dentist. Many dentists will offer to do implants, but dental implants are sophisticated devices that require expert knowledge and experience. For your peace of mind, you will absolutely want an AAID Credentialed implant dentist.
  • Be sure to mention if you are a smoker, any medical conditions you have, and any over-the-counter and prescription medications you take.
