Dental Implants: Not Ready Today But Ready Someday!

You may not really know what to make of preparing or qualifying for dental implants. You may figure that you’re either going to qualify or not. You may even make some assumptions that lead you to believe you’re not going to be able to receive them, so you figure pursuing the idea any further may just end up being a disappointment. Here’s a very important word of wisdom on this topic: If you’re not ready today, you may very well have options that will allow you to become ready for implants. Don’t overlook some important details!

There Are Financial Solutions

Good news: If you don’t feel like you’re ready to invest in dental implants right now, you may be able to receive them anyway by relying on our third party financing option through a company called CareCredit. You can enjoy low or zero interest rates and repayment that works for you. Or, remember that you may plan for implants by saving for a projected date. Talk with us about these solutions!

There Are Ways To Fix Your Smile

No, your smile may not be prepared at the moment for dental implants. This is possibly the result of structural deficiencies that mean your smile is just not strong enough to support implants. Or, if your mouth isn’t healthy enough today, then it’s not safe to move ahead with oral surgery. Here’s what you can remember about fixing it:

  • Decay, Infection, Etc.: You can rely on restorative care to get you through oral illnesses, so your smile is healthy and you’re ready to go.
  • Jawbone Problems: Having an issue with your jaw tissue? This isn’t new! Many patients suffer from problems with damage or a loss of tissue. Bone grafting is a wonderful potential solution.
