Am I a Candidate for Dental Implants?
Most individuals are good candidates for this tooth replacement method. Factors that can affect the success of dental implants, such as insufficient bone density, periodontal disease, or a smoking habit, can be discussed with Dr. Elly Tehrani during your consultation. Typically, risk factors can be minimized with additional treatments to prepare
the oral environment.
Dental implants are intimately connected with the gum tissues and underlying bone in the mouth. Since periodontists are the dental experts who specialize in precisely these areas, they are ideal members of your dental implant team. Not only do periodontists have experience working with other dental professions, they also have the special knowledge, training and facilities to provide you with teeth that look and feel like your own. Your dentist and Dr. Tehrani will work together to make your dreams come true.
