Dental Implant ExamHow Dental Implants from your dentist in Fort Myers, Florida can remake your smile

Are you wondering if dental implants are right for you? The truth is nearly everyone with missing teeth can benefit from them, as implants are the longest lasting, healthiest, and most natural-looking tooth replacement available. But, are you a good candidate? If your mouth is healthy and your overall health is good, it is quite likely that you are! Read below to learn more, and if you live in the in Fort Myers or North Naples, Florida, area, Dr. Jay Shartzer at Implant Dentistry of Fort Myers is the dentist that can provide you with implant treatment!

Implant Prerequisites and Benefits

There are a few health considerations which can impact your ability to heal from dental implant treatment. Be sure and let Dr. Shartzer know if you:

  • Are a smoker, or use tobacco products
  • Drink excessive amounts of alcohol
  • Have diabetes, especially if it is uncontrolled by medication
  • Have a history of radiation to your face, jaws, or head
  • Have a history of gum or periodontal disease

The best candidates for dental implants are people with adequate bone support. Sometimes, if you’ve worn dentures for years, bone can begin to diminish. However, if you are a long-time denture wearer, don’t worry; if you have insufficient bone to support the implants, your dentist can discuss methods of increasing bone, including bone grafts.

You will love dental implants because they are virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth. They complete your smile by blending with your teeth. They also function just like your natural teeth. They will never move around, so you can be confident when you eat the foods you love, knowing your dental implants will stay put.
