Dental ImplantsDental implants from your dentist in Radcliff, Kentucky, can make you smile again

If you are missing teeth, you may be wondering if dental implants are right for you. The truth is, implants are an excellent tooth replacement solution as they can restore both your natural smile and chewing function. Dr. Ernest O. Skaggs in Radcliff, Kentucky, provides patients with dental implants; read below to decide if they are the right choice for you!

Are you a good candidate?

Dental implants are right for you if you want to replace either a single missing tooth or multiple missing teeth and desire a more natural choice than dental bridges, partials, or dentures. Additional reasons include that implants:

  • Are completely stable and won’t move around because they are firmly embedded in bone
  • Look virtually identical to natural teeth because, like tooth enamel, the implant crown reflects light
  • Are the most successful surgical implant, with a success rate of over 95 percent
  • Are easy to maintain because you brush and floss them along with your natural teeth

There are a few issues which might impact the health of your dental implants, so be sure and let Dr. Skaggs know if you smoke or drink excessive amounts of alcohol. Diabetes and a history of radiation to your jaws can also influence your healing time after dental implant treatment. Additionally, if you have a history of gum or periodontal disease, be sure to let your dentist know.
