What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants replace tooth roots and provide a strong foundation for replacement teeth that are made to match your natural teeth. According to the ADA website, dental implants provide a patient with more options besides dentures and bridges. Charlotte Dentistry® recommends them to periodontal patients.

Who Can Get Dental Implants?
Anyone healthy enough to undergo a routine oral surgery can be considered for a dental implant. Patients should have healthy gums and enough bone to hold the implant. They also must be committed to good oral hygiene and regular visits to their general dentist. It is always a good idea to have an evaluation by a Charlotte periodontist before getting dental implants.
