Who Can Benefit From Dental Implants?

Most people with missing teeth are candidates for dental implants. Because they fully replace missing teeth above and below the gum line, implants can help people who suffered tooth loss for a wide variety of reasons, including:

  • Tooth decay
  • Gum disease
  • Injury to the teeth or gums

When you visit our office near Greece, NY, Dr. Pogal and Dr. Sussman will thoroughly examine your mouth for oral health problems and other potential issues. We can talk about tooth replacement with dental implants during this free consultation.  

Are Dental Implants Right for Me?

The answer to this question will depend on our specific findings during your initial visit. Many patients who can safely undergo oral surgery are candidates for dental implants, but there are some factors that could make certain people unsuitable for this treatment.

Ideal dental implant patients generally meet the following standards:

  • Good oral health
  • Jawbone is dense enough to support the implant

Some patients develop gum disease due to diabetes, which can increase the risk of complications during the dental implant process. Smokers also have a higher risk of complications. However, Dr. Sussman has often been able to overcome these potential obstacles by carefully monitoring the progress of smokers and diabetics through healing and integration of the implant.
