We will thoroughly evaluate your dental and general health before you have a dental implant. You need to have both healthy gums and the right bone structure to hold the implant in place. Successful joining of the bone and the implant requires good periodontal health (the area around your teeth), so if you have a higher risk of getting gum disease, or suffer from systemic diseases such as diabetes or you are a smoker, you may not be a good candidate for a dental implant.
It’s also really important to stay committed to great oral hygiene to help keep the supporting bone healthy.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
