Finding the ideal solution for your restorative dental needs can be challenging, but at Herman Family Dentistry, we offer dental implants as a lifelong replacement option for patients with missing or damaged teeth. Although implants are the top-rated tooth replacement solution, not everyone is a suitable candidate.
During your consultation, our Vincennes, IN, implant dentist will perform evaluations to determine if dental implants are the best fit for your unique situation.
When you come into our Vincennes office for your implant consultation, there are three steps to expect: an oral health evaluation, a one-on-one discussion, and a final decision.
To evaluate your dental health, Dr. Eric Herman will visually examine your smile for any signs of decay or disease. He’ll also take scans of your jaw to get a closer look at bone density and tissue health. Additionally, our front office staff may ask you to fill out a questionnaire about your medical and dental history.
Once Dr. Herman has reviewed your evaluation notes and scans, he’ll meet with you to discuss your smile goals. Whether you need a single implant or an implant-supported denture, our goal is to make sure the result meets your expectations. During this meeting, you can also ask Dr. Herman any questions you may have.
After the evaluation and discussion, we’ll give you some time to make your decision. You won’t have to commit to a dental implant treatment right then and there, but we recommend that you decide before the state of your oral health worsens.
It’s important to note that even if you fall under one of these categories, it doesn’t mean you can’t receive implants. Instead, you may have to wait for the duration or go through supplemental work before you qualify.
The following factors may hinder your candidacy for dental implants:
It may take some time to adjust to the feeling of the implant in your mouth, particularly if you’re getting multiple implants.
Missing teeth can cause your remaining teeth to shift over time, so getting an implant to replace a missing tooth can help prevent alignment issues.
If you’re wondering if dental implant treatment is the right solution for your oral health needs, Dr. Herman and our team are here for you. To schedule your consultation, call our Vincennes office at (812)-882-1572.
