Determining Your Implant Candidacy

Determining if you qualify for dental implants requires a comprehensive evaluation and diagnostics from our implant dentists. We will evaluate the condition of your gums, bone, and teeth. Both dental and medical records are also needed to assess any systemic conditions or harmful lifestyle habits, such as smoking. In general, the following are factors that affect dental implant candidacy:

gum health

Gum Health

Dental implants need a healthy oral environment to remain successful long-term. If infection is present, this can damage both the gum tissues and bone. Active gum disease will require treatment before dental implants can be placed to avoid failure.

bone volume

Bone Volume

The health of your jawbone is crucial to dental implant success. Without proper density and volume, dental implants will not have proper support. Bone will need to be rebuilt and strengthened through bone grafting surgery.

systemic conditions

Systemic Conditions

Underlying medical conditions such as diabetes and immune system disorders make it more difficult for your body to heal after surgery. The systemic disease also increases the risk of infection after surgery. Having these conditions doesn’t mean we can’t offer you dental implants, it just means we may adjust your treatment plan to improve the chances of a successful outcome.

physical health

Physical Health

With proper maintenance, dental implants have the potential to last for the rest of your life. This includes maintaining excellent physical and oral health. If you smoke, consider quitting before your surgery and practice good daily oral hygiene habits.
