Am I a Candidate for Dental Implants?

Why you should get dental implants

dental implants

Dental implants are the most permanent, natural-looking solution to tooth loss. If you are considering implants but you are not sure if they are right for you, it’s time to call in a specialist like Dr. Tariq Riyal at Miswak Dentistry in Ukrainian Village, your implant expert serving Chicago, Illinois.

Dental implants are a much better choice than removable partials or dentures because implants help you:

  • Speak with increased confidence, knowing your teeth won’t move
  • Live with more convenience because you won’t have to take them out every night unlike dentures
  • Chew your food better, which improves your digestion

Dental implants also help you look younger by maintaining the bone in your jaw, giving you more youthful facial contours. They are also more permanent because if you care for them properly, they might last your lifetime.

You are a candidate for dental implants if you want to replace missing teeth, but you also should be in general good health. You might want to discuss other options with Dr. Riyal if you have:

  • Alcohol or tobacco issues
  • Uncontrolled gum disease
  • Poor dental hygiene
  • Uncontrolled diabetes
  • Cancer or radiation treatment

You will also need adequate levels of bone and soft tissue to support an implant. Dr. Riyal will need to take some x-rays, study models and take a comprehensive medical and dental history. He will do a dental examination and fully discuss your implant options with you.

If you choose dental implants, you have chosen well, because they are over 95 percent successful! They are much better than dentures or partials because of their convenience, how long they last, and how much better you will feel. You will have more confidence speaking and eating and greater self-esteem than you would ever have with a partial or denture. Dental implants are truly a part of you.

If you want to find out if dental implants are right for you, stop in and visit Dr. Tariq Riyal at Miswak Dentistry in Ukrainian Village, Chicago, Illinois. Call today and find out how dental implants can enhance your smile and your life!
