Should You Get a Dental Implant?

Dental implantA missing tooth is more than a cosmetic issue – it can have a serious effect on your oral health too.  Missing teeth can cause misalignment and make your mouth more prone to cavities.  Whether you experienced accidental tooth loss or you recently had a tooth extracted, it’s important to take steps to restore your smile.

While there are several restorative options available to you, dental implants are often the favored tooth replacement option.  They are custom designed to match the natural shape and shade of your smile.  Their stability also makes them a comfortable choice, requiring minimal adjustment to your oral hygiene routine.

While dental implants are a great choice for most patients, they are not for everyone.  We do not always recommend dental implants when you:

    • are a heavy smoker
    • have a weakened immune system
    • have diabetes
    • grind your teeth at night
    • your teeth are not fully mature (children)
You can read this article or visit our website for more information on whether or not you are a good candidate for dental implants.  If you are a missing a tooth, call 516-482-2215 to contact Perfect Smile Maker for your dental implant consultation.  Stewart Brody, DDS will help you determine the best restorative solution for your smile.
