Choosing Dental Implants

Dental implants in Savannah, GA with Dr. Bordlemay are a modern, dependable solution for patients who need a tooth extraction or already have one or more missing teeth. Today’s dental technology makes it possible for almost anyone who needs a tooth extraction or is looking to replace lost teeth to receive dental implants. Implants are sturdier, more comfortable, and more natural looking than traditional tooth replacement options such as dentures and bridges. Dental implants also make eating and speaking effortless and are a healthier alternative because they copy the role of real tooth roots, stimulating the jaw bone to keep it strong and functional.

The Consultation

Dr. Bordlemay performs a variety of dental implant techniques to address different needs. An oral examination will determine which procedure is best for you. Here is a list of factors that you and Dr. Bordlemay will discuss during your dental implant consultation:

• If you currently wear dentures or bridges, Dr. Bordlemay may suggest reinforcing them with a few dental implants or replacing them altogether.
• If there is significant bone loss where teeth are missing, you may require a bone grafting procedure before you can have implant surgery. Dental implants need a certain amount of bone to work.
• In rare cases, dental implants for patients with certain medical conditions may not be suitable. Be sure to let Dr. Bordlemay know of any health problems that you may have during your consultation.
• If gum disease is detected, it should be treated prior to having dental implant surgery to ensure a successful result.
• Smoking can have a negative impact on your dental health and the success of your dental implants. If you use tobacco, please let us know so that we can discuss your options.
