A permanent dental implant is a metal, typically titanium, post implanted into the bone to replace the missing root. The crown and supporting structure are securely and permanently attached to the post. Titanium is amazingly sturdy and extremely well tolerated by the human body. There are very few instances of rejection.
Tooth implants offer a long-term solution to tooth loss. Are you a suitable candidate for tooth implant surgery?
Because the metal rod is anchored into the jaw bone, it is essential that you have enough healthy bone at the implant site. Dr. Montz can determine if you do. Age is rarely a factor. Dental implants have proved to be successful for men and women of all ages.
There are a few health problems that may affect your eligibility for implants. These include diabetes, osteoporosis, radiation therapy for cancer, parathyroid disorders, bone disorders, and leukemia. The presence of one or more of these does not necessarily mean an implant cannot work for you.
Discuss any health matters with Dr. Montz during your implant consultation.
