Who is not a good candidate for dental implants?

Dental implants are a great tooth replacement option for many people. They are durable, strong, and with proper care can last a lifetime. However, they are not right for everyone.

Bone density is important for the success of dental implants. If your jaw does not have a sufficient amount of bone density, the implant will not be able to properly fuse with the bone and will eventually fail.

Certain medical conditions can also play a role in determining whether or not you are a good candidate for dental implants. These include uncontrolled diabetes, cancer, osteoporosis, and autoimmune disease.

Additionally, poor dental hygiene practices might potentially limit you as a candidate, as this can lead to implant failure. It is important to have healthy gums and enough bone to support the implant before getting the procedure. If you have any concerns about whether or not you would be a good candidate for dental implants, be sure to discuss them with Dr. Bickel.
