If you’ve been told that you’re not a candidate for dental implants, you shouldn’t let it stop you from seeking a solution to broken or missing teeth, and achieving the smile of your dreams. The fact is, many patients are told that they aren’t good dental implant candidates, and truly believe they can’t have dental implants—and that couldn’t be further from the truth.

Not a Dental Implant Candidate? Get a Second Opinion

I see countless patients seeking a second (or third, or fourth) opinion about their candidacy for dental implants: they’ve been told they can’t have dental implants—for a variety of reasons—and each time, my office has been able to accommodate them and place the implants they were told they couldn’t have.

Patients are told they’re not dental implant candidates for a variety of reasons, but some of the most common include:

  • Not enough bone structure to place the implants: When a dentist or dental implant specialist believes that the jaw bone is too thin or too soft to keep the implant in place, he’ll often reject that patient as an implant candidate, because improper bone structure that can’t support an implant will lead the implant surgery to fail.
  • A lower skill level or comfort level with more severe dental implant cases: When dentists or dental implantologists believe that a case is too severe, they will reject the patient as an implant candidate rather than subject him or her to a procedure that is beyond their skill or comfort level.
  • A lack of technology and equipment to meet the needs of the most severe dental implant cases: Similar to the above, when dentists or dental implantologists don’t have the necessary technology or equipment to ensure the successful outcome of a dental implant procedure, they’ll often reject the patient for treatment.

If you’ve been rejected for a dental implant procedure, scheduling a consultation with me for a second opinion could leave you pleasantly surprised.

You Are a Dental Implant Candidate – Even if You’ve Been Told You’re Not

Even if you’re been told you’re not a dental implant candidate, it’s more than likely that you are—you just need to find a dental implant specialist who can meet your needs.

I’ve successfully placed hundreds of dental implants for patients—including those who were previously told that they weren’t candidates. Here’s how I do it:

  • Bone grafting procedures are done right here in the office, with the latest dental technology, to ensure that your jaw bone is strong enough to support your dental implant.
  • Ridge expansions, narrow implants, and various other types of implants to meet your needs are always created right here in my office.

I’ve had years of formal training and extensive experience successfully placing dental implants, even in the toughest cases.

So, if you’ve had a consultation with another dentist or dental implantologist and walked away disappointed, don’t lose hope.

Even if you’ve been told that you’re not a dental implant candidate, there’s almost certainly an implant solution for you—simply contact my office for an appointment, and we’ll get you on the way to your best smile with dental implants.
