Dental implants in Greeley are an excellent solution for replacing one or multiple missing teeth; however, they're not for everyone.
To successfully support a dental implant, you need enough healthy bone structure, which can be depleted if you've suffered from advanced gum disease or worn a denture for many years. For some patients lacking healthy bone, a tooth implant may not be viable.
Dental implants also require a surgical procedure to place the implant into your jawbone, which some patients may not want to or can't endure.
And for some people, the cost of a tooth implant may be prohibitive.
In all of these cases, a dental bridge could be an option for replacing a tooth and restoring your smile. The best place to start determining the right solution for you is to schedule an evaluation with your Greeley dentist.
During your evaluation, Dr. Bagley will use x-rays and a thorough examination to determine if you are a good candidate for dental implants. He will also review the time frame and cost of the procedure so you can make a decision for your smile that's right for your lifestyle, schedule, and budget.
