The Ideal Implant Candidate

Dental implants from Peninsula Center of Cosmetic Dentistry in Los Altos CA not only restore the smiles of our patients with missing teeth, they restore the ability to bite and chew. Not everyone is an ideal candidate for an implant, but even difficult cases may be eligible.

Dental implants are titanium posts anchored to your jawbone. Titanium is remarkable compatible with human bone, and once the implant is placed it fuses to become one with your jaw. They are a rock-solid support for artificial teeth that function like natural teeth.

The Ideal Candidate

The best candidates for dental implants have the following traits:

In good general health. Conditions like diabetes can interfere with the recovery following placement of an implant.
Non-smokers. The best patients do not smoke, or are willing to kick the habit for good. Tobacco use can interfere with the process of the implant fusing with the bone.
In good dental health. Gum disease, in particular, decreases the success rate of dental implants.
Good bone density. It’s important to have enough bone mass to support the dental implant. Even if you don’t, though, bone grafting can promote enough new bone growth to support one.

If you are missing one or more of your natural teeth, please call us to find at Peninsula Center of Cosmetic Dentistry in Los Altos CA to find out what we can do for you. We serve patients from Daly City, Milpitas, and Saratoga. Options include cosmetic dentistry, restorative dentistry, and orthodontics. Call for an appointment today!
