Dental implants are the strongest, most reliable, and longest-lasting method of tooth replacement. During your Fresno dental implants consultation with Dr. Miyake it can best be determined if this solution is right for you.

You may be a good candidate for dental implants in Fresno if you are:

  • Missing one or more teeth
  • In generally good physical health
  • Free of oral health issues such as gum disease
  • Prepared to restore full strength, function, and beauty to your smile

Jaw Structure

Dental implants are inserted directly into the jawbone where they become accepted as a replacement tooth root. In order for this process to work, you must have sufficient jawbone structure to support the implant. If you have lost bone density due to tooth loss, bone grafting may be necessary before you are a good candidate for dental implants.

There are a number of different dental implant options offered by Fresno dentist Dr. Gregory Miyake, some of which do not require as much bone density. During your implant dentistry consultation Dr. Miyake will examine your jaw and discuss all of your options to help you decide if dental implants are the best choice for your smile.

If you live in or around Fresno, California and would like to know if you are a good candidate for dental implants, please contact Gregory G. Miyake, DDS to schedule your initial consultation today.
