Implants look and feel completely natural, and don’t compromise the strength of neighboring teeth. They improve ability to speak clearly, to chew food without limitations, and prevent further oral health issues associated with tooth loss such as bite and jaw misalignment, teeth shifting, and crooked smiles. They even provide incredible stability for patients with dentures.

Most people are candidates for dental implants, and there is no age limit for the procedure. Qualifying for an implant relies more on health factors. The ideal candidate for a dental implant is in good general and oral health. In order for the jaw to support the implant, there must be adequate bone available. If you do not have sufficient bone density or size, a bone graft could be an option for you.

The best candidates have healthy gum tissues that are free of periodontal disease. Smokers, and high consumers of alcohol may lower the success rate of implant procedures, but it doesn’t automatically disqualify you. Other medical conditions that may lessen your chances of being a good candidate for dental implants include uncontrolled diabetes, blood disorders, and cancer.
