Will Implants Work For Me?

If you have lost teeth due to injury, disease or decay, you are a potential candidate for dental implants. During your initial examination, we can ascertain if implants will be a workable solution by looking at the following:

Age – Dental implants are a great way to restore your smile, whatever your age. Even children can have implant dentistry, although dentists will often postpone surgery until the jawbone has finished growing.

Oral hygiene – The success rate of dental implants is extremely high if you have a good standard of oral hygiene.

Bone density – It is important to have sufficient jawbone mass so the dental implant can bond successfully with the bone.

Gum disease and decay – If you’ve lost your teeth due to gum disease or tooth decay, you can still have dental implants.

Dentures – If you already wear dentures, implant dentistry can be used to anchor the dentures more securely in your mouth. This will boost your confidence when eating, talking and smiling.

Smoking – Smoking can lessen your chances of a successful implant dentistry procedure, but will not necessarily stop you from having treatment.
