Find out if you are the ideal candidate for getting dental implants in White Bear Lake.
You want to replace your missing tooth or teeth but you aren’t sure what treatment option is right for you. You could continue to do more and more online research and read up on other people’s experiences or you could turn to our White Bear Lake, MN, dentists, Dr. Daniel Isaacson and Dr. Mike Weisbrod, to get the information you need to decide whether dental implants are ideal.
If you are a healthy adult who is missing one or more permanent teeth, then you could certainly be a great candidate for getting dental implants in White Bear Lake, MN. Here are some criteria that patients will need to meet in order to be able to get dental implants:
- A strong healthy jawbone that can support an implant
- Good oral health and hygiene (your smile should be free of decay and gum disease)
- Be a non-smoker (smokers are more likely to deal with implant failure)
- Good general health
As you can see, your health is very important to determining whether or not implants are right for you. Ideal candidates will also be adults. While teens and children can certainly lose permanent teeth as well, they aren’t good candidates for implants. This is because their jawbones are still growing. If an implant were placed into the jawbone it would stunt the jawbone’s growth. Of course, there are other ways to replace missing teeth until your child is old enough to get dental implants.
