Can I have dental implants?
Most healthy patients are candidates for dental implants. To determine if dental implants are right for you, Dr Andrew Dunn will provide a comprehensive dental evaluation.

For successful treatment with dental implants, you need enough healthy bone with sufficient density to support the dental implant post. We use 3-D cone beam x-rays to evaluate the bone structure, identify the ideal location for dental implant placement, and avoid nerves and sinuses during the placement process.
What if I Don’t Have Enough Bone?
Bone grafting may allow us to increase bone volume before dental implant placement. If implants are not possible, we may be able to offer fixed bridges as an option to replace missing teeth.
If you have gum disease or decay, we will address those conditions prior to dental implant surgery to improve your chances of success and control bacteria that may negatively impact the integration of the dental implant.
