Are Dental Implants Right for Me?

Despite all their benefits, dental implants are not suitable for everyone. Dr. Spektor does not consider implants to be suitable for children. You also need to have good oral health, and enough density in your jawbone to support a dental implant. There should be no presence of gum disease. If you have gum disease, this infection will need to be treated first before the work on a dental implant begins.

Any of these conditions or habits could increase your risk of complications or implant failure:

•  Taking certain medications, especially steroids and bisphosphonates
•  Any pre-existing condition that slows your body's healing ability, such as diabetes
•  Smoking

If you are not a good candidate for dental implants, Spektor Dental offers other tooth replacement options that may be right for you.

You also need to determine how many implants you need. If you are living with substantial tooth loss, then you may want to consider implant-supported dentures, rather than have an implant to replace each of your missing teeth. Spektor Dental also provides implant dentures for current denture wearers seeking an alternative to their loose-fitting dentures. Again, the best way to determine how many implants are right for you is to have a consultation with Dr. Spektor.
