Is Dental Implants Right Choice for You?

January 26, 2019

If you are missing or have recently lost a tooth or maybe you have just been struggling with a severely damaged tooth, there are several restorative treatment options which can help you resolve this issue. Dental implants are considered to be ideal and the best option for most lost teeth. Before considering any treatment option make sure you make an informed decision that is best for you and your needs. Our dentist, Dr. James Heaton DDS FAGD in Chandler AZ has been placing dental implants for years now and can help you if you are the right candidate for dental implants.

Is Dental Implants Right Choice for You?

Dental implants are considered to be the best available solution for missing or lost tooth. But it is not right for every patient. To know if a dental implant is right for you, consult the right implant dentist in Chandler AZ as it is the key to successful treatment.

Are you the right candidate?

If you are considering dental implants treatment you need to have a good oral and overall health. Dental problems such as gum disease and gum recession can affect implant success. Patients with diabetes or other disorders which can limit the ability to heal after the surgery may not be the right candidate for dental implants.

Dental implants need a strong jaw bone which can hold the implant firmly. The implant dentist will capture a 3D image using the advanced technology to check the bone density. If the bone density is shallow, the dentist may use other methods such as bone grafting to supplement your jaw. Although the procedure of dental implants for some candidate is intimidating, the treatment is relatively simple and pain-free.

Though dental implants are often costlier than other restorative treatment options, they offer a permanent solution for your missing teeth and you don’t have to be concerned about continuous adjustment. Implants can also help you prevent bone deterioration that can cause continuing problems. Our implant dentist in Chandler can help you make an informed decision whether to consider a dental implant or other possible options which best suit your needs.

Our Reviews

Dr Heaton is as kind as he is competent. He treats me like a person, not a paycheck and I feel like I can trust him to only recommend what I need. I also referred an employee of mine who needed serious dental care and did not have a lot of money. Dr Heaton was flexible and kind and so helpful. Highly Recommend.

Most people dread going to the dentist but I'm always excited to go especially when it means seeing all of the wonderful people who work there. My family has been going here for more than 20 years and I've never had a bad experience. You can count on walking out the door with a huge (minty fresh) smile on your face. Highly recommended!
