    Dental Implant Candidate

    Patients who have sufficient quantity and quality of jawbone tissue are in proper condition for the treatment. Healthy individuals who maintain  good oral hygiene are good candidates for dental implants.

    What do I need to have a dental implant?

    The most important conditions that makes a patient ideal for an implant dentistry treatment, are the followings:

    Missing tooth or teeth doesn’t mean that the patient does not have good oral health. Regular brushing (at least twice a day) with proper technique provide good oral hygiene that is greatly contribute to the success of the treatment. Patients who have uncontrolled diabetes, smoke, or drink alcohol, have a lower sucess rate with dental implants, because of lower oral health.

    • Gum in good condition

    Since dental implants connected with gums, those patients who have gum disease/periodontal disease are not suitable candidates for dental implants. Healthy gums are ideal to support the dental implants.

    • Proper bone density

    Good bone density is essential, as sufficient amount of bone is indispensable to support the implant adequately. Generally, children don’t qualify for implant dentistry, since their bones are not developed properly.

    • Maintaining oral health

    Commitment to oral health is not only the best way to make the patient suitable for dental implants, but it also helps to prevent other serious conditions and tooth problems. Regular brushing, flossing, and use of mouthash is essential for maintaining oral health, It is also recommended to participate in a dental check-up half yearly.

    In which case I can not have dental implant?

    Circumstances where dental implants may not be suitable, or situations that have an increased risk of dental implant failure, include:

    It restrict the blood flow to the gums, and surrounding tissues. It may also stop the jawbone from integrating with the implant, that means the patient won’t have a stable root, Without a strong root, the dental implant has a high chance of failure

    • Excessive alcohol intake

    It disrupts and slows down the healing process of the gums

    Gum disease has to be treated prior to implantation since severe gum disease causes jawbone loss.

    • Immuno-compromised patients

    Steroids, patients undergoing radiation treatment, auto-immune disease

    • Teeth grinders (bruxism)

    in case of bruxism so-called mouthguard or nightguard (also known as an occlusal splint) is provided to prevent chipping of porcelain crowns

    Can tooth grinders have dental implants as well?

    The answer is yes. Bruxism isn’t an obstacle in case of placing a dental implant. In fact, it is a very common habit to have and it isn’t a conscious thing, it mostly happens during sleeping. Please let your dentist know if you are aware of having bruxism but he/she will also be able to recognize the symptoms

    Tooth grinding puts an extra pressure on the dental implant which can be solved a few ways. The dental crowndental bridge or the denture can be built up from a stronger material to be able to bear the extra impact. Additional tooth implants may also be added to support the tooth replacement. In addition to the above mentioned, your dentist may also suggest you using a removable splint (also called a mouthguard) for the night to reduce pressure.

    How do I know that I have enough bone for a dental implant?

    It’s not possible to estimate on your own if the jawbone is enough for an implant dentistry procedure.

    An X-ray and a CT scan are required to evaluate your bone density and volume, This technique  allows the dentist to get information about nearby anatomical structures (such as nerves) too. He/she determines whether your bone need support (i.e. an artificial bone replacement/grafting or sinus lift) to anchor firmly your dental implants.
