How to know if you are a candidate for dental implants

Posted By nextsmiles nextsmiles     February 24, 2022    


Dental implants are surgical procedures that involve placing a post (or “implant”) into the jawbone under local anaesthesia, fixed by titanium screws. The implant will become a section of the jawbone within a week. Dental implants are very successful, with an over 95% success rate.




Dental implant's success is a joint effort between you and your dentist. The dentist will explain how the treatment will happen and the aftercare procedure. However, to get implants, the dentist will have to evaluate if you are a suitable candidate for the procedure. This is because the process involves surgery, and the success depends on some factors.


The dentist will ask several questions and perform a diagnostic procedure. For instance, as a patient, you are asked about your prior and current medical history, including the medication you take and underlying medical conditions or potential blood disorders.


If the dentist tells you that you are not an immediate candidate for the procedure, you can improve your candidacy with a dental procedure. For instance, you have gum disease. The gum disease will temporarily disqualify you as a candidate. Hence you have to treat the gum disease before proceeding with the dental implant procedure.


So, how do you know you are a candidate for dental implants?

  • Teeth and gum are in good health.
  • You have a good bone density to offer good support
  • You have good oral hygiene habits
  • If you quit smoking or have never become a smoker
  • You are a patient person. The process takes some time which can be up to twelve months, to heal and be completed fully.


Conditions that can disqualify you from the dental implants procedure

  • Smoking
  • Gum disease
  • Poor general health
  • Uncontrolled diabetes
  • Radiation therapy
  • Pregnancy
  • Low bone density
  • People under the age of 18
