Ideal Dental Implant Candidates

A dental implant restored tooth is the next best thing to a natural, healthy tooth. Unfortunately, not everyone is an ideal candidate for dental implants. Here at South Florida Periodontics and Dental Implants, we can evaluate patients to determine if they are a good fit. In addition to having healthy teeth and gums, ideal dental implant candidates:  

 ·         Have sufficient bone density to support the dental implant
 ·         Are non-smoking, or are prepared to stop during the treatment process
 ·         Have not had treatment with bisphosphonate medications
 ·         Are committed to good oral hygiene
 ·         Have bone density adequate to maintain the dental implant  

Implant therapy involves a team composed of a periodontist trained in implant placement who places the dental implant and a restorative dentist who makes the crown.  

Dental Implant Costs

Dental implants are frequently more expensive than other conventional alternatives. However, the dental implant cost varies depending on the region and who is performing the procedure. Other factors that affect the cost include:

 ·         Surgeon or dentist that is selected
 ·         Type of procedure and implant
 ·         Which teeth and how many need replacement
 ·         The number of implants required to support the teeth
 ·         The amount of insurance coverage  

No two patients or their customized dental implant treatment plans are alike. We will be able to provide an estimate of costs after we perform an initial evaluation and assessment.
