Replacing one tooth can prevent more teeth becoming loose and falling out.

Am I a good candidate for this treatment?
Before undergoing treatment patients must undergo a medical/oral health evaluation. This will determine if the implant placement procedure poses any risk. It will also determine if any factors exist that could negatively affect the healing capacity of either jaw bone or associated soft tissues.
Who can receive tooth implants?
Patients who are medically fit to participate in a general oral surgical procedure.
Who should consider getting this treatment?
Patients who have medical or other conditions which may interfere with the healing process of either their bones or soft tissues* must carefully evaluate, with their board-certified prosthodontist the potential risks and benefits of using dental implants.
*e.g., connective tissue disorders, steroid therapy, bone infections, osteoporosis, bone density loss, or cigarette smoking.
I’ve previously been told I’m not qualified for an implant
If you have been told you are not qualified or not have enough bone for implanted teeth, you may want to consider having a consultation with a board-certified prosthodontist who is also a board-certified periodontist or implantologist.
Dr. Ameli is a board-certified prosthodontist.
What difference can a board certified prosthodontist make?
The radiograph on the right represents a patient who has been wearing denture for many years. This patient had been previously told she did not have enough bone to be considered for an implant.
After careful examination and detailed evaluation of both arches using advanced dental-imaging-software (NobelClinician Software®). Dr. Ameli could help the patient to regain her confidence and feel rejuvenated. Having fixed prosthesis anchoring to her dental implants, and not be embarrassed due to wearing dentures.
What precautions should I take for implant treatment?
Implant Dentistry should not be used in patients who have inadequate amounts of bone to permit placement of implants in sufficient size and numbers to support their biomechanical loads.
Mechanical failures, including fatigue fracture of implants, prosthetic screws, and/or abutment screws, may occur if dental implants are insufficient in size or number to support their biomechanical loads, or are not properly positioned.
To reduce the risk of overload or fatigue failure, your board-certified specialist will carefully place the implants and design prosthetics to accommodate the physical or medical conditions of the patients, such as bruxism (i.e., grinding or clenching of teeth) or unfavorable jaw relationships.
