Question:
How do I know if I can have Implants? I did not take care of my gums because I was too embarassed at their appearance.

My upper teeth have been replaced with ill fitting dentures and now I have very few lower teeth left. If I have bone loss, is it still possible to to get implants?

Can you rebuild the bone? Plus, is it possible to get these implants in just a few visits ...Visitor from PA

Answer:
With todays implant advancements and success rates it may very well be possible to receive implant dentistry and to get rid of those ill fitting dentures.

The other huge advantage besides having upper and lower teeth that do not come out is that implants placed in the jaws will function like natural tooth roots and help you prevent continued bone loss over the years.

The titanium implants stimulate the jawbone just like natural teeth roots and in doing so prevent your jawbone from resorbing away over the years.

To determine if you are a candidate for implant therapy and to evaluate the condition of your bone levels you need to consultl with your dentist. Sedation medications are available with some dental practices that can help you to comfortably get your care done in just a few appointments.
