There are times where dental implants are not going to be realistic for one reason or another. Even if they are the best option for restoring functionality to your mouth, they may just not be realistic for you.
By getting dental implants as soon after losing your original teeth can often help this problem. However, it isn't always going to be the option that is going to work best. If you want help seeing if your mouth is a good candidate for implants, give us a call.
Times Where Your Mouth May Not Work with ImplantsIf you smoke regularly, your mouth may not be a good candidate for implants. Smoking hurts your mouth, cuts down on how quickly you can heal, and can increase the chances that you suffer from both gum disease and jaw resorption.
People with active gum disease may not qualify for dental implants, either. This can impact your body's ability to heal from implant placement surgery. Plus, it can make it to where your gum disease spreads if you open the gums to place the implants.
If you lost your original teeth some time ago, you may not be able to get dental implants. Some people cannot get them at all if this is the case, while others cannot get implants without other procedures first. Many times, your mouth may need bone or tissue grafts in order to get implants.
To find out if you could get dental implants to help restore your oral health and increase the functionality of your mouth, call our office. We will go through your mouth during an examination, and then talk to you about what we find. From there, we can decide what steps should next be taken to give you the type of oral health you were looking for.
