If you live in the Manchester, MO area and are facing a dental extraction or you have recently lost a tooth due to a fracture or decay, it might be time to think about how you will replace that tooth or teeth. Dental implants are one of the most popular choices amongst our patients because they have numerous health and cosmetic benefits over other options.

If this sounds like you, contact Stanford Dental to learn more about dental implants.

You Are Generally Healthy

If you are medically healthy and want to replace a missing tooth with dental implants, you are likely a good candidate. It’s common to lose bone when you have a missing tooth, but that does not necessarily mean that you do not qualify for dental implants. Additional procedures such as bone grafting can make dental implants a possibility for your smile!

You Are Committed to Cleaning Your Teeth and Gums

For dental implants to be a true success, you need to be diligent about your dental care. Brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing at least once a day is essential to keeping your dental implant – and your smile – healthy.

Maintaining regular dental exams and cleanings is also important. Your routine dental visits help Dr. James Stanford keep an eye on your oral health and address any problems before they lead to more tooth loss or implant failure.

You Don’t Mind the Wait

Dental implants are worth waiting for. In our Manchester, MO dental office, we allow time for the full integration to occur before placing the dental implant crown on the tooth. This ensures that your dental implant can withstand the load caused by chewing.

If you are ready to make a commitment, dental implants can replace your missing teeth and last a lifetime with the proper care.
