Your mouth is Special; Be diagnosed by a Specialist
Dental Implant Criteria
Age: Age alone is not a limiting factor for implant dentistry. Dr. Dobro has successfully placed implants for a patient 92 years of age, and for patients as young as 21 years of age. Talk to Dr. Dobro about your options.
Oral Hygiene: If you take good care of your mouth, the success rate for anchoring of dental implants is extremely high.
Jawbone Mass: Dr. Dobro will be able to determine your oral health with a comprehensive dental exam. It is important to have sufficient jawbone mass in order to anchor the dental implant to the bone. If you have less than ideal bone volume or density, we offer bone grafting using the revolutionary L-PRF procedure, or mini dental implants to help make implant dentistry a viable option.
History of Gum Disease: If you’ve lost your teeth to gum disease or tooth decay, you will make a great candidate for dental implants, though you may need to improve your oral care routine in order to fully benefit from this procedure.
Dentures: Do you already wear dentures to replace missing teeth? Implant dentistry can be used in conjunction with dentures as a way to anchor the dentures more securely into the mouth. This is a simpler and less expensive alternative to a fixed-in-place restoration. It will give you a greater feeling of confidence during daily activities like eating, talking, and smiling. It can usually be upgraded later to a fixed-in-place solution if you desire.
Smoking: In addition to the health risks it poses, smoking decreases your chance of a successful implant dentistry procedure. However, it doesn’t necessarily rule it out completely. Dr. Dobro has seen much improved results by using the revolutionary L-PRF technique. If you smoke, ask Dr. Dobro about how you can become a better dental implant candidate.
