Are You a Candidate for Dental Implants?

Are You a Candidate for Dental Implants?

If you are missing teeth or currently wearing dentures, you are a candidate for dental implants.


Dental implants have dramatically changed the lives of many for the better, helping them overcome the detrimental, and often devastating, effects of disease, poor function and unattractive smiles.

When evaluating whether or not you would be candidate for dental implants, several things are considered, including:

Your Medical History

Discuss all medications and existing medical conditions with your dentist beforehand. Generally, if you are healthy enough to have typical dental work done, you can undergo the dental implant procedure.

Bone Loss

If you have a good amount of bone remaining, dental implants will be successful. If there is not enough bone to support the implants, bone-grafting procedures may be required for a dental implant to be placed.
