The ideal candidate for dental implants is a healthy adult with adequate bone volume in the jaw. A CT scan can determine if there is enough bone to safely place dental implants in with predictable long-term results. For more than 40 years dental professionals have accepted dental implants as a successful method of tooth restoration and they are now considered the standard of care for the replacement of unhealthy or missing teeth. However, the proper steps must be taken to ensure the patient is truly a candidate for dental implants. Factors such as periodontal disease, poor healing after injury, and extended periods of time with missing teeth can result in loss of bone. Loss of bone may mean the patient is no longer a candidate for dental implants or it may just mean the patient needs the aid of a bone graft to help the implants heal. Dental implants do not bring back lost bone, but they do preserve existing bone and prevent further deterioration.
Within minutes of viewing your free CT scan, your Eon Clinics prosthodontist or oral surgeon will know if you are a candidate for dental implants.

If only I had known how wonderful the whole experience would be, I would have come to Eon Clinics a lot sooner.
“If only I had known how wonderful the whole experience would be, I would have come to Eon Clinics a lot sooner. I thought the procedure would be painful and require a lot of downtime (which I do not have) to recover, however; I can honestly say, that was not the case whatsoever. Going to Eon Clinics was the best thing I could have ever done for myself. Not to mention, from start to finish, the entire staff (clinical and non-clinical) was pleasant, inviting and extremely knowledgeable about implants and the procedure itself. I can’t thank them enough! Not only has my new smile given me the confidence I have always wanted, I don’t have to worry about not having something to smile about ever again. Thank you a million times over, Eon Clinics”.– Anish Shah
