Candidates for Dental Implants


 

Dental implants are a wonderful solution that have restored many smiles through the years because of how advanced they have become. Before you decide whether to go for dental implants or not, it's important to know which factors make a person a good candidate dental implants. If your answer to any of the following questions is yes, dental implants could improve your quality of life:

 

  • Are you currently wearing dentures or recommended dentures?
  • Do you have one, several or all missing teeth that need to be replaced?
  • Are you wearing bridges or are you in need of bridges?

 

If your answer to any of the above questions is yes, you will have to get your mouth, jaw and overall health examined thoroughly by an implantologist for further checks to be assured that you are a good candidate for dental implant. At Lovesmile Dr Prasath and many other dentists in his team are qualified implantologist. Dr Prasath or his team will examine you to identify areas of bone loss and carefully see the shape of your sinuses and nerve location to make accurate assessments for your treatment. We will also do a thorough medical evaluation, as your overall health and history plays a big role in how well your implant will heal and fuse to the bone.

 

Certain amount of bone is required in order to support an implant. However, even if your bone is deficient, you can benefit from bone grafting techniques to restore volume of your bone. This will improve the bone density, making it more supporting to hold an implant.

 

In general candidate for Dental Implants should have healthy gums, no untreated gum or bone disease, no medications that may interfere with bone growth and strong metabolic health.

 

Are you a child?

 

Generally children are not eligible for dental implants until their jaw growth is complete.

 

Do you smoke?

 

Although smoking lowers the success rate of implants, it doesn’t eliminate the possibility.

 

Pregnancy

 

If you are currently pregnant, dentist at Lovesmile will most likely recommend waiting to receive a dental implant until after the baby is born.

 

People at Risk of Poor Outcomes

 

Uncontrolled diabetes, cancer, smoking, alcoholism, or uncontrolled gum disease are all risk factors that can adversely affect your outcome. People who take certain medications, such as steroids or drugs that suppress the immune system may not be suitable candidates, either. You may still be a good candidate with one or few of these diseases, but we’ll have to thoroughly assess your situation at Lovesmile.

 

If you are considering implants, we can complete a careful examination to determine what options are best suited for you. Dr Prasath and his team at Lovesmile, encourage you to give us a call on 0151 734 2221 and schedule a consultation.
