How are Farragut area residents determined to be good candidates for dental implants?

Young Woman Having Dental Checkup

A dental implant is a restoration used by cosmetic dentists in the Farragut area to restore a smile after the loss of a natural tooth. Instead of partial dentures or a dental bridge, a patient may seek placement of a dental implant to improve his or her smile.

There are many benefits of dental implants. They are strong, durable, and last a lifetime with proper care. They function and appear as natural teeth, and are an affordable way to maintain a smile for a lifetime.

Patients considering dental implants need to ensure that they are a good candidate for treatment. Not every dental situation allows a patient to enjoy dental implants. An initial consultation with Dr. Foncea of Sequoyah Dental Arts allows the dentist to complete a full examination with x-rays to determine one’s candidacy.

Proper candidates are those who have a healthy mouth, sufficient bone structure, and a commitment to maintaining the health of their teeth. This includes regular brushing, flossing, and visits to the dentist. Patients with a history of reoccurring periodontal disease who are not committed to their oral health may not benefit from this service.

Patients who are not proper candidates are those who are:

  • Pregnant
  • Too young
  • Heavy smokers or drinkers
  • Undergoing radiation therapy
  • Suffering from certain chronic diseases and systemic disorders
  • Diagnosed with bruxism
  • Taking certain medications

A thorough medical and dental history is done during the initial evaluation with Dr. Foncea to learn more about a patient’s conditions and overall health. This evaluation can assist in determining one’s ability to undergo dental implant surgery.

Are you a patient considering dental implants as an alternative to dentures or bridges? Do you want a standalone restoration that lasts a lifetime? Are you ready to invest in your oral health and seek a solution that can greatly improve the function and appearance of your smile?

If you answered yes to the above questions, you have taken the first step to seeking dental implants. Contact Sequoyah Dental Arts today to schedule an initial examination to determine if you are a proper candidate for this cosmetic treatment.
