Permanent dental implants from Alaska Premier Dental Group are the ideal replacement for missing teeth.
A permanent dental implant is a metal (usually titanium) post anchored into the jaw bone to replace the missing root. The crown and supporting structure are securely and permanently attached to the post. Titanium is amazingly strong and well-tolerated by the human body. There are very few instances of rejection.
Dental implants offer a long-term solution to tooth loss. Are you a good candidate for tooth implant surgery?
Because the metal rod is implanted into the jaw bone, it is essential that you have enough healthy bone at the implant site. We can determine if you do. Age is rarely a factor. Dental implants have proven to be successful for people of all ages.
There are a few health matters that may affect your eligibility for implants. These include diabetes, osteoporosis, radiation therapy for cancer, parathyroid disorders, bone disorders and leukemia. The presence of one or more of these does not necessarily mean an implant cannot work for you.
