Who Is A Good Candidate For Implants?
What qualities does the ideal candidate possess?
If you're considering dental implants, you'll want to make sure that you're a good candidate for the procedure. Here, we'll discuss a few traits that are desirable to have before diving in... Before undergoing treatment for dental implants, it's important to be in good overall health. If you have a condition such as uncontrolled diabetes or take medications that may interfere with your recovery, then feel free to discuss alternative treatments with us. Another consideration to make is whether you have adequate jaw bone volume. Successful implants require strong support in the jaw, and without that support, the implant will eventually fail. If you lack the necessary jaw bone density to anchor an
implant, you may consider a bone graft to strengthen your jawbone with genuine bone or with synthetic material. Another factor to consider is whether your gums are healthy enough for the procedure. If you're dealing with gum disease, then you may want to pay a visit to the periodontist before you commit to implants. Not only is it a good idea to fix any gum problems you may have, but it is important to practice ongoing oral health maintenance after you receive your implants so that they can last the rest of your life. If you're still unsure whether you're the right candidate for dental implants, then give us a call. We'll be happy to discuss the pros and cons with you and explore all the options available.
What is the success rate of dental implants?
The success rate for dental implants is very high: 92% for the upper jaw and 95% for the lower jaw.
What are All On 4 dental implants?
All-on-4 dental implants are used to replace all the missing teeth in one jaw with only four implants. If the patient has lost a lot of bone in the back of the mouth, then this procedure will be useful for them. Like full mouth dental implants, this option is an even greater commitment than permanent dentures.
What are mini dental implants?
For patients who have lost too much bone mass in their jaws for a regular implant, mini dental implants may be a good option. These implants are structured like normal dental implants, but are smaller. They're made with a titanium post with a ball on the end, as well as a socket with a rubber O-ring connecting the tooth to the post.
How many implants are required for dentures?
For bar-retained and ball-retained dentures alike, two denture implants are required to have enough stability to support the dentures.
How much are dental implants?
The cost of dental implants depends on the dentist and location, as well as any additional services you need, like custom abutments, bone grafts, and crowns. Give us a call at (657) 888-9011 to discuss your specific dental implant needs.
Do dental implants affect my other teeth?
Dental implants should have no effect on your other teeth. There is, however, an infection called peri-implantitis, which involves jawbone loss around the dental implant, and this potentially could affect neighboring teeth. Proper oral care can help ensure that this doesn't happen to you.
Does it hurt to get a dental implant?
Patients who get dental implants report that there is some pain involved during the tooth implant process. However, they report that the pain is not as bad as having a tooth removed. You don't need to fear getting a dental implant with us -- we have many anesthetic and sedation options available to put you at ease.
Can your mouth reject an implant?
While most tooth implant procedures are successful, it is possible that one's mouth can reject an implant if the process hasn't been handled by an experienced oral surgeon. Some patients' bodies are sensitive to foreign objects, while others demonstrate inadequate dental hygiene. If you have any concerns about getting an implant, be sure to speak with us!
Does a missing tooth need to be replaced?
If you're missing a tooth, you may be wondering whether that tooth even needs to be replaced. It's generally a good idea to replace all missing teeth. A missing tooth causes the surrounding teeth to lose adequate support, and it causes the bone to deteriorate. You may also find that the gum is irritable and that it's more difficult to eat. Having a mouth full of teeth is always the best option!
