Are You a Candidate for Implants?
Implants vs Bridges
Dental implants have become widely popular for tooth replacement simply because traditional dentures and bridges are not fixed to the bone. Because they are unstable, it can be especially difficult to eat or smile with confidence.
Dental implants also look more natural than dentures or bridges, and they feel and act more like natural teeth with a stronger biting force.
You may only be a candidate for dental implant surgery if you are in good health in both your mouth and body. This means you should not have any gum disease or any other infection/condition in your mouth. It is important that your jawbone has enough density and volume to hold the dental implant securely. Whereas, dental bridges require you to be healthy and ready to maintain your restoration.
In addition to their equipment being all state-of-the-art, Dr. Forest and the rest of her staff have a hands-on approach. They didn’t just tell me what I was doing wrong or what they were seeing in my teeth; they showed me and walked me through what the x-rays looked like and proper techniques to follow. I was able to see and understand exactly what they were telling me. If you are looking for a dentist, your search is over!
