If you’ve lost one or more teeth, you’ve heard about the benefits of dental implants. They’ve quickly become the preferred solution to replace missing teeth because they replicate the entire structure of a tooth. This allows them to provide over a 95% success rate to last for several decades. Their long-term viability relies on your jawbone supporting the posts and remaining infection-free. To ensure your new smile has the foundation it needs to thrive, your dentist will check to ensure you have adequate bone density needed for implants. If you’ve lost bone, don’t worry. You can become a candidate for dental implants with bone grafting.
