If you have at least one missing tooth, you may already be a good candidate for dental implants. Only a dentist will be able to perform a full evaluation of your oral health to help determine whether you are the perfect candidate or not. The ideal dental implant candidate will be in good overall health, have a strong jaw bone structure, have sufficient gum tissue in order for the proper fit of the implants, and also possess positive outlook about their situation. While some patients may feel that their age would be an issue for them receiving dental implants this usually isn’t the case as overall health is generally the determining factor.
For those who suffer from untreated gum disease, tooth decay, or bone issues, it may not be a good idea for them to receive dental implants. This could cause some adverse effects if a person with these issues would try to receive a dental implant. Here at Marylebone Implant Centre, we will take the time to go over each step of the dental implant process with you. We have the know-how and the expertise to determine if you are the perfect candidate for dental implants. This will include a full mouth evaluation along with X-rays.
