If you have missing teeth that need to be replaced, you may be thinking about getting dental implants. If this is the case, you should visit us at South Jersey Family Dental. Our top-notch dentist, Dr. Baqir Jaffrey, will let you know if you are a good candidate for getting dental implants in Turnersville NJ.
In order to get dental implants, it is very important that you are a good candidate for the procedure. This is because if you are not a good candidate for getting dental implants, it is not likely that the dental implants will be able to firmly bond to your jawbone so that they can provide a stable base for your new dental implant tooth. The dental implants will simply fail early on, or simply will not be able to be established. This is why our dentist will always make sure that you are a good candidate for getting dental implants in Turnersville NJ before proceeding with the dental implant procedure. In order to be a good candidate for dental implants, it is important that your jawbone is thick enough and healthy enough to be able to withstand the dental implant surgery, and to allow the dental implant root to firmly fuse to the jawbone. Many times, after a tooth is lost, the jawbone will atrophy due to the fact that there is a missing tooth root. This can make the jawbone too week, or too thin, to successfully function during the dental implant procedure. If this is the case, the dental implant candidate may need to have a bone grafting procedure performed. Our dentist will also want to make sure that you do not have any medical conditions that can keep your jawbone from healing completely after the dental implant surgery. The healing period for dental implants does take many months, and the patient does need to be able to heal thoroughly from this oral surgery.
