Title: How Does a Dentist Determine if Someone is a Dental Implant Candidate


1
  • How Does a Dentist Determine if Someone
  • is a Dental Implant Candidate?

2
Dental implants have revolutionized tooth
replacement for those who have lost teeth due to
disease or injury.
3
However, a number of factors affect whether
dental implants are recommended for your
individual needs.
4
Family dentists can do a preliminary assessment
of whether you would be a good candidate
for dental implants.
5
General Health
6
Cosmetic dentists generally assess the overall
health of patients before they begin any kind of
dental procedure.
7
These questions allow the dental professional to
ascertain whether any issue exists that could
affect tooth health, gum condition or the
treatment itself.
8
Getting dental implants require that you be in
good general health and not have any medical
problem that might affect the procedures
necessary to place the implants and heal gum
tissues.
9
Condition of the Bones
10
The condition of the bones that make up the tooth
socket also has an important bearing on the
ability to hold an implant.
11
Bone density can be reduced by age or tooth loss.
If you do not have enough bone to hold an
implant, your dentist may have to graft on new
bone.
12
This process can add additional time to the
implant process, but it will ensure that the
implant holds securely.
13
Gum Disease
14
If you have long-standing, untreated gum disease,
you should not get dental implants.
15
Implants require healthy tissue to form around
the implant after placement.
16
You should first get the gum condition treated,
and then talk to your dental professional about
receiving implants.
17
Existing Systemic Disease
18
If you have been diagnosed with certain systemic
diseases, they may affect your ability to achieve
success with dental implants.
19
Family dentists may inquire whether you have
diabetes, leukemia or cancer, which can all
affect the ability of the tissues to heal around
the implant.
20
If you have received radiation for cancer, it may
also affect healing. Also, individuals with
connective tissue disease, hemophilia and immune
system disorders are not good candidates for
dental implants.
21
Pregnancy
22
Most dental experts believe that it is better to
wait until after the birth before doing implant
treatment.
23
Diagnostic and antibiotic treatments that
normally occur during implant procedures may have
a detrimental impact on the fetus.
24
It is much safer to wait until after the birth
before proceeding with implant treatment.
25
Smoking and Alcoholism
26
People who smoke have reduced circulation to the
mouth tissues, which can affect healing when
placing implants.
27
You can help to ensure success with your implants
by quitting smoking before your treatments begin.
28
Similarly, excessive use of alcohol or drugs can
also affect the ability of tissues to heal
properly.
29
Getting treatment for this condition before
treatment will help to achieve a successful
outcome with the implants.
30
Motivated To Care For the Implants
31
In many ways, the same care the patient must do
to preserve their natural teeth is required to
care for dental implants.
32
Daily brushing and flossing, as well as regular
visits to the dentists, are required to ensure
that the gums remain healthy and the implants
remain stable.
33
If implants become damaged, the patient must have
them repaired or replaced.
34
Most patients find that dental implants are good
replacements for natural teeth.
35
Your dentist will provide a thorough evaluation
of your dental and overall health to ensure a
successful implant experience.
36
If you are seeking professional dental advice,
it's time to call Shumway Dental Care. Their
Chandler dentists will ask you questions, examine
you, and determine exactly what needs to be done
to get you back to normal.
