Is Dental Implant Suitable For Everyone

dental_implant_price_londonDental implants can be placed in patients of any age (with fully developed jawbones), provided that they have a sufficient quantity and quality of bone tissue available. Most healthy individuals that maintain a good oral hygiene program are suitable candidates for dental implants. Circumstances where implants may not be suitable, or situations that have an increased risk of implant failure, include:

Heavy smoking – this slows down and hinders the healing process.
Excessive alcohol intake – disrupts healing of the gums. 
Periodontal gum disease – all active gum disease must be treated prior to any implant procedure to ensure the long-term success of any treatment. Periodontal disease is a major cause of bone loss, which would hinder the success of any implant procedure.
Immuno-compromised individuals (steroids, auto-immune disease, patients undergoing radiation treatment).
Teeth grinders (bruxism) – a night-time splint can be given to treat this.
