Can Dental Implants Work For You?

Take this 15-second quiz to see if dental implants are right for you!

Balancing Costs and Benefits

Dental implants provide many benefits, and can be life-changing for patients who have struggled with gaps in their smile or a failing appliance.

Implant-supported restorations function very similarly to natural teeth, providing superior security and improved your oral health.

As with any surgical procedure, there are risks to consider, but the vast majority of patients are extremely happy with their implant restorations. Reports show a success rate of over 95 percent after 20 years.

After performing hundreds of implants procedures over more than 25 years years, Dr. Degel is known for his meticulous work and outstanding patient outcomes.

Dental implants restorations do cost more than a traditional denture or dental bridge, but many patients find this method well worth the additional expense. Implants provide a permanent solution with ongoing health benefits. You will not have to worry about continuous adjustments or having to replace your teeth because of shifting jawlines again. Dental implants provide stimulation to the jaw, so they prevent the bone deterioration that tends to cause continuing problems.

The Guide Will Show You

Are you a candidate for dental implants?

In order to qualify for dental implants treatment, you must have sufficient oral and overall health. Gum disease and gum recession can limit the success of implants, leading to implant failure. You must also be in good overall health to undergo a surgical procedure.

Patients with diabetes or other conditions that can affect their ability to heal may not be able to receive dental implants. In addition, senior patients who are not strong enough to undergo surgery may benefit from traditional restorative solutions.


A strong jaw bone is also required to support dental implants, which is why our team will always use advanced technology to create detailed, 3-D images of your oral anatomy. If your jaw is shallow or small, you may not be able to accommodate traditional implants.

However, you can sometimes supplement your jaw with simple bone grafting procedures, which Dr. Degel also performs. Although the placement process sounds intimidating to some patients, it is a relatively simple, pain-free procedure. After performing hundreds of implants procedures over more than 25 years years, Dr. Degel is known for his meticulous work and outstanding patient outcomes.
