At Parkside Dental Care, we are passionate about helping our patients have a functioning and beautiful smile that they can enjoy for many years, if not their entire lives. While it is always the ultimate goal to have healthy teeth that will last a lifetime, unfortunately, due to a variety of reasons, that is not always the case. Recurring decay, gum disease, side effects from illness and medication, and trauma to the mouth can all be reasons we may recommend a restorative dentistry treatment.
When a patient experiences severe decay or a dental emergency, I do everything Ican to save the natural tooth, but unfortunately, that is not always possible. I know that losing a tooth can be upsetting, and I like to have a tooth replacement option ready for when the time is right. One option that I usually recommend to patients is a dental implant. While dental implants are a fantastic tooth replacement option and a popular choice for many of my patients, not everyone is a candidate. Read on to learn more about dental implants and to see if you would be a candidate to receive this treatment.
