Are You A Dental Implant Candidate?

A Patient with her Husband Learning from the Dentist about Dental Implants

A missing tooth can lead to a bunch of issues that can easily be avoided. However, some adults don’t quite realize the harm of having a missing tooth, and have to learn the hard way. One missing tooth can be the cause of low self-esteem, a miss on a social opportunity, and even ruin your image. Even worse, just one missing tooth is the catalyst for bone and gum deterioration and tooth shifting.

If you are missing a tooth, you have options available to you! Get a dental implant! Many people who get treatment immediately will save many years of pain and expensive treatments. Dating back to their inception, modern dental implants have been successful in over 95% of all cases. Here’s how your dental implant can be successful.

Adequate Bone Support

The most important factor is having a strong jawbone. Your jawbone is what anchors your teeth in place and keeps them fixed there. When you lose a tooth, the portion of jawbone which was supporting it will begin to deteriorate. That is why it is important that you get a dental implant as soon as a tooth falls out. If not, you will have to get a bone graft to repair your bone. The next time you see your dentist, ask them to check on your bone density and see if it is healthy enough for a dental implant to be placed.

Healthy Gums

Your gums are just as important as the bone that supports the implant. That is because while the implant is fusing with the jawbone through a process called osseointegration, your gums are what support the dental implant. The implant will not be successful if you risk periodontal disease. Be sure to keep up with the health of your gums through daily brushing and flossing, as well as making biannual visits to your dentist.

Good Overall Health

It still isn’t enough to only keep up your oral health. Dental implants are rarely successful in the case of smokers, alcoholics or those suffering from strong diabetes. These things can lower your oral health, and disrupt the healing process of your dental implant.
