Can Anyone Get Dental Implants?

Posted on 8/10/2020 by David Mugford
Can Anyone Get Dental Implants?Not everyone can get dental implants nor are they a good candidate. While a lot of people benefit from the artificial roots, some people do not have enough bone in the jaw to accommodate their use. If you have this problem, we can perform a bone graft so the implants can be added. The following information elaborates on the use of implants and when their use can be supported.

What Is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant is an artificial titanium root that is surgically inserted. When it fuses with the bone, it permits us to add prosthetics, such as crowns, dentures, or fixed bridges. This type of innovation in dentistry enables people to enjoy a permanent smile that is almost like a natural smile. Titanium is used for implants, as it fuses well with the bone. Therefore, it creates an excellent anchor for people who are edentulous or have missing teeth.

Why Some People Cannot Get Implants

While a lot of patients do get implants, some people cannot receive the. For example, if they do not have enough bone to support the implant, they may need a bone craft first before we can add the implants. In other cases, some people are taking medicines that make bone healing around an implant extremely difficult. Also, if you have been treated for cancer or have received radiation to the jawbone, you usually will need to consider an alternative dental measure.

Would you like to know more about implants and find out if you are the right candidate? If so, contact our office today. Do all you can to improve your smile and quality of life.
