Am I a Candidate for Dental Implants?
|•||Certain Medications: It is important that we know all medications, either prescribed or over the counter, that you may be taking, even if they seem irrelevant. There are ingredients that can limit or slow down your natural ability to heal.
|•||Medical Conditions: There are multiple medical conditions that can cause healing to be limited. This can include diabetes, cancer treatment, and more. Medical conditions do not eliminate you from candidacy, but we may ask to talk with your physician for guidance.
|•||Smoking: Smoking tobacco, vape or marijuana can cause some direct problems in your mouth while healing. From temporary paralysis of the tissue, to the heat of the smoke drying your mouth and exposing you to increased infection. We may discuss temporarily stopping smoking for a period of time immediately before or after treatment. We will advise each patient on this according to their situation.
|•||Active Periodontal Disease: Periodontal disease, or gum disease, is a bacterial infection in your mouth. We want to help you gain control of this infection before opening the tissue and making you susceptible to infection.|
