When Should I Consider Dental Implants?
Dental implants are considered an extremely effective and long-lasting solution to replace severely missing or damaged teeth. While they stand out among the many treatments commonly utilized to rebuild one’s smile, the question of when a patient should consider implant dentistry over other restorative techniques commonly arises. In general, dental implants can be an ideal treatment option in cases wherein a patient:
- Is seeking a long-lasting replacement for one or more missing teeth
- Experiences difficulty biting, or has lost some degree of biting function
- Has enough jawbone volume to support implant placement
- Wishes to achieve a greater degree of security than can be provided with dental bridges
- Wants a tooth replacement solution that can minimize further bone loss

Dr. Nicholas Rallis and Dr. Chris Chondrogiannis are committed to developing a comprehensive treatment plan to help you reach your smile goals while accommodating your unique needs.
