Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs): Dental Implants

How can we help you?

At Vaccaro Aesthetic and Family Dentistry, we value patient education. We firmly believe that patients who are well informed about their oral health are better equipped to make good choices. When you are here in our dental office, we will spend as much time as is necessary to address any questions or concerns you might have about your personal dentistry. We want everyone to remember that the only silly question is one that is left unasked! 

For your convenience, we've included some of our most common questions below. But don't hesitate to ask additional questions when you see us.

Dental Implants

If you are missing one or more teeth, you might have done some research on the best option for tooth replacement. Chances are, your research led you to dental implants. But are you a good candidate for dental implants?

Requirements for Dental Implants

The good news is that most people are. Some of the requirements for a successful dental implant procedure include:

  • Gums that are healthy
  • People who are in good overall health
  • Enough jawbone to permanently anchor the dental implants
  • A commitment to taking good care of one’s oral health, including the implants, the surrounding teeth, and the gums
  • Lifestyle changes, such as quitting smoking that can increase the chances for successful implants

If your jawbone has deteriorated because of your tooth loss, you still might be able to get dental implants with procedures such as bone grafting.
