Are Dental Implants Right For You?

Happy coupleDental implants are quickly turning into the best option for adults who are missing some or all of their teeth. If you’re considering dental implants, you may wonder if you’re a good candidate for them. Odds are that if you are healthy enough to undergo a routine dental procedure, you’re probably healthy enough to receive dental implants.

Candidates For Dental Implants

Dental implants are a good idea for adults who:

  • Suffer from any bone loss – Implants will help to prevent any further bone loss from occurring. This means that your facial structure will be preserved, and your jawbone will be healthy.
  • Currently wear dentures – Dental implants are fixed, and more stable replacement for dentures. Additionally, implants can help to secure and keep dentures stable.
  • Have gum disease – If your teeth have been lost due to periodontitis or gum disease, you have a good success rate for dental implants.

Below are a few things you should work on before being considered for dental implants:

  • Use of Tobacco Products – If you smoke or chew tobacco, your dental implants will have a significantly lower success rate. Before receiving your implants, we strongly recommend that you quit the use of any tobacco products.
  • Getting Chronic Diseases Under Control – Diseases such as diabetes or high blood pressure will require extra precautions during your dental implant procedure. It’s important that you have these medications under control before receiving dental implants.

Dental implants are an advanced dental procedure we typically refer out to a specialist. For more information about dental implants, or if you have any concerns about your dental health, please make an appointment here at Severance Dental. Our family dental office is located in Severance, CO.
