Are Dental Implants Suitable for You?

Dental implantation is considered the best restoration procedure for chronic teeth loss because it uses materials that function just like natural teeth. Not everybody, however, may qualify for it. There are certain conditions that may impair the effectiveness of the implant.

Healthy gums are a pre-requisite for this procedure, so it may not be recommended for young people whose gums have not yet reached maturity. Chronic systemic problems that cause weak gums such as periodontal disease, hemophilia, leukemia, cancer, and certain diseases on the connective tissues may hamper healing.

It’s also not advisable for alcoholics, chain smokers, drug-dependents, those with severe cases of bruxism, and those who’ve been exposed to high doses of radiation, specifically on the head area as these lower the chances of a successful implant. It also may not be for people who lack bones to which the implant can anchor.

If you have any of the conditions above, you should still seek diagnosis from a dental restoration professional. He will evaluate the severity of your condition to determine your suitability for the procedure. Be sure to provide him an accurate record of your medical history for your oral examination. That includes past health issues and medical intakes, prescribed or not. If you’re not fit for dental implants, he will discuss other options along with the procedure, cost, side effects and treatment plans.


Thank you so much for this write up. It's been awhile that i have been thinking to implants. Then through Dentzz Review came across this video of where a patient from Australia shares her experience to get the best treatment. I am really concerned about my teeth and want to go through and know as much before taking the big decision.

Nice content thanks for sharing buddy, many people will find this content useful. I had done my dental implant a while a back and now I am really comfortable with the ceramic crown.
