If you are struggling with the complications associated with tooth loss, it is likely you are searching for a viable tooth replacement solution. Our Homestead implant dentist, Dr. Robert Cuckler, is proud to provide patients with the replacement teeth they need to restore their quality of life and get their smiles back to their optimal aesthetic and functional level. Dental implants are, in fact, an excellent option for assisting those with tooth loss. If they are a treatment you would like to pursue, the first step is to visit our Homestead implant dentist for a consultation and an examination. This first visit is important because it allows Dr. Cuckler to evaluate the current state of your teeth and the surrounding structures of your mouth, and to discuss the process of a dental implant restoration with you. It is also important because it allows us to make sure that you have the proper qualifications to proceed with a dental implant restoration.
There are a few basic requirements that must be met in order for dental implants to be successful, such as: healthy gums, sufficient underlying bone mass in the jaw, and good oral health in general. If we do not feel you are ready for dental implants because you do not one or more of the requirements, we will then discuss what needs to be done to get you ready as soon as possible. For example, if Dr. Cuckler feels that your bone mass is not sufficient to support an implant, we may recommend a bone graft or another similar procedure as a preliminary treatment prior to continuing with the implant restoration. Of course, the specifics vary from patient to patient, and so we can give you a more personalized idea of how your restoration process will work after an appointment with us at our Homestead implant dentist office.
