What factors impact dental implant success?

1. Gum disease
Healthy gums are a criteria for dental implant surgery, and you can’t have this procedure with active gum disease.

Gum disease is an infection that can damage the gums and jaw bone. An untreated infection could develop around the implant and lead to failure. See a dentist to treat gum disease before getting an implant.

2. Smoking
Smoking can also cause dental implant failure because it restricts blood flow to the gums, slowing the healing process. Multiple research studies show that smokers can have a dental implant failure rate up to 20 percent.

Being a smoker doesn’t mean that you’re ineligible for a dental implant. However, you may have a better outcome if you stop smoking one week prior to a dental implant and if you don’t smoke for at least two months after implant placement.

3. Insufficient jaw bone
A successful procedure is also dependent on sufficient bone to support the implant. Without enough healthy bone, the surgeon cannot surgically place the implant into your jaw.

Bone loss can happen with osteoporosis. This condition develops when bone density decreases. Bones become fragile and there’s the increased risk of fractures. Severe gum disease can also cause deterioration of bones in the mouth.

Nice article Daniel ! Implant depends on variety of factors and yes healthy gums are on the top in this list. If your gums are not healthy then you are not a good patient for the procedure. Gum disease can cause infection that can turn into serious issue later. So going to your dentist before implant is advisory.Also smoking is not favorable for implants.

Dental implants in York are an excellent, permanent solution to missing teeth. Implants are tooth-coloured so they can blend in with your natural teeth and they function the same way your natural teeth do as well. However, dental implants are not for every one. In order to receive dental implants near you, you must have healthy gums and strong jaw bone to support the implant.

Daniel, you wrote a great article! The success of an implant is determined by a number of factors, the most important of which are healthy gums. If your gums are unhealthy, you will not be a good candidate for the procedure. Gum disease can lead to infection, which can progress to a serious problem later on. As a result, seeing your dentist before getting an implant is strongly advised. Smoking is also harmful to implants.
