Who is the Ideal Candidate for Dental Implants?
Just about anyone who has missing teeth is a good candidate for dental implants. As long as the jaw is no longer growing, even younger patients can have dental implants placed. The best candidates have:
- Healthy gums
- A strong jawbone to anchor the implants
- A commitment to keeping their follow-up dental appointments
- A willingness to take care of the implants through good oral hygiene
In some cases, uncontrolled periodontal disease, diabetes, smoking, and even alcohol consumption can prolong the healing process. These factors should be considered and addressed prior to beginning treatment to create the best outcome.
What If My Jawbone is Too Weak for Dental Implants?
Our Lehigh Valley dental implant practice is equipped with a 3D Cone Beam scanner, which allows Dr. Kenney to accurately assess whether there is enough bone present to place a dental implant. If there is not, in many instances, bone grafting can restore your jawbone so it is strong enough to support dental implants.
Can I Get a Single Dental Implant?
Absolutely. If you are only missing one tooth, a single dental implant is often a better option than the alternative treatment—a cemented bridge–which requires grinding the neighboring teeth to support it.
What Sets Kenney Dental Apart?
Dr. Kenney is a graduate of the world-renowned Misch International Implant Institute. He has performed numerous implant procedures and is committed to guiding you through the entire process from consultation to healing and follow-up care.
