Replacing lost teeth as soon as possible is important for your long term dental health. Once a tooth is lost, the body immediately starts to make changes to the bone where the tooth used to be. Over time, the jaw bone shrinks and thins. If you don’t take appropriate action in the proper time frame, you could find yourself in a situation where an implant isn’t possible without considerably more expense.
Dr. Mulkey or one of his associates will perform a thorough examination to determine if you are a candidate for dental implants. Not everyone is qualified for dental implants. Patients need to be generally in good health, with healthy gums and sufficient bone in the jaw to support the implants. We offer alternative options for those who are not considered a good candidate, including cosmetic dentures and bridges.
