Find out what determines your candidacy for getting dental implants.

Dental ImplantThinking about getting dental implants? If so, then you may be wondering what goes into getting this tooth replacement and whether it’s the right option for you. There are many factors that determine whether or not our North Syracuse, NY, cosmetic dentist Dr. Inderpreet Atwal will deem you ideal for this restoration. Here are some things to consider that could help you decide whether dental implants are right for you.

What is a dental implant?

An implant is a metal restoration that replaces your missing tooth roots and functions in exactly the same way. In order for an implant to work, our North Syracuse, NY, dentist will need to surgically place the implant into the jawbone. Over the course of several months, the jawbone and the implant will naturally fuse together to become one. While you won’t be able to see the implant itself, you will see the dental crown or dentures that are secured on top to complete the restoration.

What are the benefits of getting dental implants?

You’ll enjoy a variety of unique benefits when you get dental implants including:

  • Preserving the jawbone and preventing bone loss
  • Preserving your natural facial structure
  • Preventing teeth from shifting into open gaps in your smile
  • Boosting your smile’s appearance and self-confidence
  • Restoring your bite
  • A long-term restoration that could last the rest of your life
  • Fully restoring speaking and chewing

Are dental implants right for you?

While the only way to truly find out if you should get a dental implant is to schedule a consultation with us so that we can examine your smile to make sure you are right for treatment, there are certain factors that can help you decide if implants are the way to go. Most adults who are missing at least one tooth but who are otherwise healthy are usually the perfect candidates for implants.

Here at Atwal Dental Care in North Syracuse, NY, we believe that everyone should have smiles that they are proud of. If you are missing one or more permanent teeth it’s important that you seek treatment as soon as possible. Let our dental experts restore your smile.
