Are dental implants right for me?
Many factors must be taken into consideration when determining if dental implants will be the right choice for your tooth replacement treatment. It is important to ensure that you are healthy enough for implants so that implant surgery works effectively for you.
When you visit our office, we will take a full medical history, including your current and past prescription drugs, to make sure that you are healthy enough for dental surgery. While most patients can have implants, certain medications can affect your body’s ability to accept dental implants. Some medical conditions might prevent implants from integrating with your body.
Dr. Jeffrey Robertson will also test the level and density of your bone to make sure that your bone is strong enough to support the dental implant post. In many cases, even if your bone structure is insufficient, you can have procedures like bone grafting to improve your bone density.
Implants remain one of the most convenient and effective tooth replacement options available. Coming to our Irvine, CA office for a full evaluation will allow Dr. Robertson to create a treatment plan for all of your specific needs. He will share his honest opinion about what options might work best for you and help you make the best decisions regarding your dental health.
