A dental implant is a metal (usually titanium) rod implanted into the bone to replace the missing root. The dental crown and supporting structure are securely and permanently attached to the rod. Titanium is amazingly strong and extremely well tolerated by the human body. There are very few instances of rejection. In fact, many Charlotte implant dentists are not familiar with any such cases.
Tooth implants offer a long-term solution to tooth loss. Are you a good candidate for tooth implant surgery?
Because the metal rod is anchored into the jaw bone, it is critical that you have enough healthy bone at the implant site. Dr. Christopher Bowman can determine if you do. Age is rarely a factor. Dental implants have proved to be successful for Myers Park area people of all ages.
There are a few medical issues 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 conditions does not necessarily mean an implant cannot work for you; discuss any health troubles with Dr. Christopher Bowman during your cosmetic dentistry consultation.
