There are lots of things to consider when deciding whether or not dental implants in Van Nuys are the right tooth replacement option for you. Before we proceed with any steps in the implant process, we need to know that you are healthy enough to have the implant surgery.
The Consultation Process
When you first visit Saticoy Plaza Dentistry, we start by taking your full medical history. Most patients we see can have dental implants, but there certain conditions like osteoporosis or cancer treatment that make it impossible for the implant to integrate with your jaw bone.
Dr. Daniel Bacquet tests the density of your jaw bone to make sure it is sufficient to support a dental implant post. If we find that it is not, bone grafting is an option that can build up your jaw so that you can have an implant placed.
