Factors that make you a good candidate for Dental Implants

These are important questions that your dentist will answer together with you, to determine if you are indeed a good candidate for teeth replacement with dental implants.

How is Your Bone Density?

Dental implants (Titanium ) are placed into your jaw bone, where your teeth are attached to your mouth at the root for effective permanence. You’ll need a decent amount of bone density for your full-mouth implants to fuse with your bone.

If you have a disease like osteoporosis, you could be on the verge of becoming a candidate. Fortunately, My Implant Dentist has the experience and tools to assist those in the early stages of the disease. So, if you’re unsure, schedule an appointment with one of our prosthodontists.

Do You Have Periodontal Disease?

Gum disease, such as Periodontal disease, weakens the gums and eventually eats away at the jawbone. Some dental implant companies may refuse to work with patients who have this disease.

Have you stopped smoking?

If you are still smoking after your dental implant procedure, this might significantly hinder the healing process. Implant failure rates are higher in smokers. It is strongly advised to stop smoking before having your teeth implants placed.

Are You Going Through Chemotherapy?

You may experience complications with your implant surgery if you’ve had chemotherapy. Your body’s ability to bond with the implants may be hampered by recent chemotherapy treatment. But all hope is not lost. Because each patient is treated individually, you may still be eligible for dental implants depending on how long ago your radiation treatment was.

Our Solutions and Services

When you have checked a dental implant checklist and have decided to get implants, it’s time to consult your implant dentist. My Dental Implants transformS patients’ smiles, but the procedure for receiving dental implants is simple. When you choose My Dental Implants, getting the brilliant smile you’ve always wanted is as easy as three steps.

Step 1: Your implant dentist will meet with you for a personalised consultation during which they will examine your teeth, walk you through the My Dental Implants procedure, and address any concerns or questions you may have.

Step 2: Your dentist will clean and prepare your mouth before placing your custom-made Implant Bridge, which is made of a durable, stain-resistant material that looks and feels completely natural.

Step 3: Your dentist will fabricate and permanently attach your Implant Bridge three to six months after your implant has been placed. Then the dentist will make any necessary adjustments to ensure a perfect and comfortable fit. 

At My Dental Implants, dental implants are low-maintenance so you can resume your routine immediately after your appointment! At home, brush and floss your teeth, as usual, visit your dentist regularly to ensure your implants are in good working order and enjoy life with your new smile.

How can I get insurance coverage for dental implants?

A dental implant is not covered by the majority of basic dental insurance policies. Look into cosmetic dental procedure coverage, which can help cover the cost of dental implants. Your dental implant insurance coverage could be up to 50% of the procedure’s cost, which means you’ll be covered for half of the cost.

Can you get immediate dental implants?

Simply put, same-day dental implants are the most practical way to achieve a beautiful new smile. So, rather than waiting weeks or months at your dentist’s office for new teeth, you can get everything done in one visit.

Who is not eligible for dental implants?

Because dental implants must be held firm with a solid bone, those with low bone mass or density who do not have enough bone structure to hold an implant in place are not suitable.  

Dental implants need to be held firmly by a strong bone mass. Therefore, it is not suitable for those with low bone mass or density. This is the purpose of a dental implants checklist. 

How long do teeth implants last?

As long as the patient visits the dentist every six months, the implant screw can last a lifetime with proper flossing and brushing. The crown, on the other hand, usually lasts only 10 to 15 years before it needs to be replaced due to wear and tear.
