Missing teeth can result in poor facial appearance, this is because with the loss of teeth your bone in jaw gets reduced resulting in poor facial profile. Without a tooth or teeth, it can be difficult to smile, eat, and speak. Teeth adjacent to missing teeth site can drift into the empty spaces.

Are you a candidate for the dental implant?

A dental implant can be a better replacement for missing teeth and it is the best option for people of any age. However, not everyone can be an ideal candidate to undergo dental implant treatment. As one of the most vital criteria to be a candidate for the dental implant is having sufficient jawbone density. If you do not possess sufficient bone density then the implant may not be able to withstand the forces applied by chewing.

Gum disease is also a common issue which can impact on dental implant's candidacy. In many cases, gum disease will be the primary cause of tooth loss. As a result, gum disease should have to be treated prior to dental implant procedure.

In certain cases, you may have to undergo bone graft procedure to restore sufficient bone density in the jaw. Our dentist in Cathedral City will first evaluate if you require bone graft before dental implant treatment.
