Dental Implants – Are They Right for You?

Diagram of Dental Implants in Wilmington, MA

Dental implants represent the highest standard of care when it comes to rebuilding your smile. An implant is the only method you can count on for a permanent fix.

However, not everyone is an ideal candidate for implants. How do you know if they’re a good option for you?

 

Get a Checkup

Getting an implant can be an invasive procedure and requires a strong immune system for successful healing. Visit your doctor for a checkup before pursuing implant therapy. As long as you’re in good health, you’re probably in line for one of these restorations.

 

Who Doesn’t Qualify?

Kids – Teenagers’ jaws are not completely finished developing. A dental implant needs to stay firmly rooted in solid bone. It won’t stay put if the jaw is still growing in size.

Smokers – It’s very important for each individual to have a thorough evaluation before treatment. Smoking limits the body’s ability to heal so it’s important to make sure that your system is ready to accept a new tooth.

Pregnant women – Elective procedures like implants should wait until after delivery.

Recent heart-attack victims – Your body needs several months to stabilize before you can have any form of oral surgery.

Uncontrolled diabetics – It doesn’t matter whether you have Type I or Type II diabetes – if it’s not well-controlled, your body can’t handle an implant. We want the procedure to be a success!
