Are you a candidate for Dental Implants?
Not everyone is a good candidate for Dental Implants, over health of the patient is an important factor, more so than the age of the patient.
A patient in good medical condition, with a good oral hygiene regime along with a healthy diet will have a high success rate for implants.
Another important factor is the condition of the jaw bone, many people will need to augment their upper bone prior to placing implants. Prior to starting the procedure x Rays are taken to determine the health, and depth of the bone where the implant will be placed. If all is in good order the first stage is the placement of the implant.
Dental implants are an effective way to replace missing teeth and are designed to bond with your natural bone then once the final crown is placed will look and act just like your other teeth.
They are an excellent long-term option for restoring your perfect smile and bite. Dental implants are usually made up of titanium which is very compatible with the human body and bone. The use of implants is one of the biggest advances in dentistry in the past 40 years giving many people back their smile and a good bite.
However, regardless of age, there are many reasons why a Dental Implant may fail; a patient who does not practice good oral hygiene on a daily basis, or a patient who smokes will have a much higher failure rate for implants.
