If you’re considering dental implants, you might be wondering, “Am I an ideal candidate for dental implants?” Let’s embark on this journey and find out if dental implants are the right choice for you! From good oral health to sufficient bone structure, we will delve into the important factors that contribute to a successful dental implant treatment.

Key Factors that Determine Your Suitability for Dental Implants

  • Oral Health: Maintaining good oral health is crucial for the success of dental implant treatment. Those seeking dental implants should have healthy gums, free from periodontal disease or any active infections. Periodontal disease can compromise the stability of dental implants and hinder the healing process. Addressing existing oral health concerns before undergoing dental implant treatment is vital. Regular dental check-ups and a diligent oral hygiene routine are essential for maintaining optimal oral health.
  • Bone Structure and Density: Another vital factor in deciding eligibility for dental implants is having adequate bone structure and density in the jawbone. Dental implants depend on osseointegration, the process where the implant fuses with the jawbone, to ensure stability and support. Adequate bone volume and density are necessary for successful osseointegration. If you’ve experienced significant bone loss, your dentist might recommend bone grafting procedures to enhance the bone structure before placing the implant.
  • Age: Age alone does not disqualify you from dental implant treatment. As long as you’re in good overall health and have sufficient bone density, dental implants can be a viable option at any age. However, it’s important to consider other factors like systemic health conditions and varying healing capacities that might come with age. Older individuals may need additional evaluations and precautions to ensure a successful implant treatment.
  • Systemic Health Conditions: Certain systemic health conditions, such as uncontrolled diabetes, autoimmune disorders, and bleeding disorders, can impact the healing process and the long-term success of dental implants. It’s crucial to discuss your medical history with our dental implant specialist to assess how your systemic health condition might affect the treatment. In some cases, with proper management and clearance from your medical doctor, dental implant treatment may still be feasible.
  • Smoking: Smoking significantly influences dental implant candidacy. Smoking has been linked to a higher risk of implant failure and complications. The habit can impede the healing process, compromise blood flow, and increase the likelihood of infections. If you’re a smoker, it’s advisable to quit or substantially reduce smoking before undergoing dental implant treatment. Doing so can enhance the chances of a successful outcome.

Have been coming to this practice for years, despite it being a good long drive. Initially I had concerns when Andre handed the reigns over, but these concerns proved unfounded as the team continued to be just as kind, caring and attentive as always. Any dental work is always carried out thoroughly and diligently and I always leave feeling like nothing has been missed or rushed. In addition, the practice uses ‘the wand’ for anaesthesia, a barely noticeable and ultra fine needle that administers slowly and without much discomfort. As someone who has a fear of needles this has helped hugely. I often struggle with tooth sensitivity so the hygienist visit is always something I dread, but Agota’s reassuring and patient attitude makes things go much more smoothly. Honestly can’t recommend them highly enough.

Highly recommend. I’ve been coming here for over 20 years. It’s not local to me but I travel here because it’s worth it. The care here is truly excellent. I was worried when Andre retired but Keelin is every bit as good and so I will continue to come here.
