Badly diseased or missing teeth can negatively impact more than your smile-ability. Lacking a full set of healthy chompers can also adversely affect your speech. Missing teeth can hinder your ability to comfortably and adequately chew food, leading to possible digestion issues. The loss of even a single tooth is capable of creating oral health issues such as bite and jaw misalignment, shifting teeth, or a “crooked” smile.
Therefore, if you’re missing a tooth, it’s important to take action as soon as possible! The good news is dental implants are an effective solution –acquiring a 90% success rate – that will assist you in avoiding the aforementioned issues. The better news is that implants look and feel completely natural, and don’t compromise the strength of neighboring teeth. They facilitate clear speech, enable full enjoyment of food, and display as a gorgeous smile.
How do you know if you personally qualify for a dental implant? Interestingly, the majority of people are suitable candidates, even those advanced in years.
The basic criteria for being an ideal candidate require:
- General good health
- Sufficient jawbone density to support a implant
- Healthy gum tissue
There are some factors that can lower the success rate of your dental implant. This might be if you:
- Drink a lot of alcohol
- Have cancer, a blood disorder, or diabetes
Although these factors may prevent you from being the ideal implant candidate, they don’t automatically disqualify you from the procedure.
Even if you are the ideal dental implant candidate, investing in this procedure could set you back.
