Dental Implant Candidacy


If you are missing one or more teeth and would like the longest-lasting and strongest solution, you may be an ideal candidate for dental implants. Inserted directly into your jaw, dental implants provide the most reliable form of tooth replacement, offering a number of advantages over both dentures and dental bridges.

Due to the many benefits of dental implants, Dr. Frye often recommend them above other forms of tooth replacement. However, they are not the best solution for everyone. The best way to determine if dental implants are right for you is through an examination with one of our experienced dentists.

To learn if you are a good candidate for dental implants, please contact Dentonics or call 412-487-6910 today to schedule your Pittsburgh dental implant consultation.

Implant Considerations

Dental implants are inserted through your gums into your jaw and require sufficient jawbone density for support. If you do not have sufficient jawbone density, bone grafting may be necessary prior to implant placement.

In addition to having enough bone to support the implant, good candidates for this procedure should be:

  • In generally good health
  • Nonsmokers
  • Free of oral health issues such as gum disease
  • Prepared for a surgical procedure
  • Willing to closely follow pre and postoperative instructions
  • Aware of alternative treatments
  • Aware of all potential risks and complications

During your initial consultation we will be happy to address any concerns or dental implant questions you may have.
