Am I a good candidate for dental implants?


Dental implants are used to replace missing or severely damaged teeth. Meeting with Hampton area orthodontist Dr. Michael Folck is the best way to determine if you are a good candidate for dental implants or other cosmetic dentistry procedures.

Ideal candidates for dental implants include patients who:
  • Are missing teeth for any reason
  • Have a difficult time biting or chewing because of missing teeth
  • Are suffering with teeth that have been ruined by decay and need replacement
  • Are tired of dealing with dentures
With dental implants, Dr. Folck will give you an artificial tooth root that grafts to your jaw. He then molds a dental crown over your new root to match your other teeth. This is a multi-step process, which requires time for recovery after the initial placement of the new root.

The dental implant is a permanent solution for missing and damaged teeth. It can restore your mouth to full functionality without you having to worry about the care and upkeep of other solutions, like dentures.

If you would like a consultation with a Hampton orthodontist to find out if you are a good candidate for dental implants, please call 877-206-3444 or contact Dr. Michael Folck, DDS today to schedule your initial consultation.
