Am I a Candidate for Dental Implants?
The ideal candidate for a dental implant is in good general and oral health. Adequate bone in your jaw is needed to support the implant, and the best candidates have healthy gum tissues that are free of periodontal disease.
Dental implants are intimately connected with the gum tissues and underlying bone in the mouth. Since periodontists are the dental experts who specialize in precisely these areas, they are ideal members of your dental implant team. Not only do periodontists have experience working with other dental professionals, they also have the special knowledge, training and facilities that you need to have teeth that look and feel just like your own. Dr. Goggin will work closely with your general dentist to make your dreams come true.
During your initial consultation, Dr. Goggin will evaluate your unique situation through a full, comprehensive exam to determine what grafting or modification procedures are required. She will review options for your care and share her findings with your general dentist to support your overall treatment plan. Schedule an initial consultation.
