What Makes You Not A Candidate For Dental Implants
However, not everyone who needs these implants are suitable for the treatment. There are certain medical conditions that prevent patients from being good candidates for All-On-4 dental implants. Let’s take a look at some examples.
People who smoke may not be able to receive this treatment as smoking compromises the bone’s healing ability. The same happens with people who lack sufficient bone density in their jaw. Here are other causes for concerns:
Gingivitis or periodontist are forms of gum disease
Gum disease destroys the gums and bone beneath, therefore there’s not sufficient bone for the implant to attach. Patients must treat gum disease first. The same happens if the patient has Insufficient Bones.
The unconscious clenching and grinding of the teeth is a serious danger to implants.
Whereas natural teeth absorb the shock created by the grinding, implants do not have the same structure as natural teeth and the pressure may lead to damage.
One of the most common effects of diabetes is slow wound recovery. Similar to having a weak immune system, the wound may take longer to heal and if a patient has an open wound in the mouth for too long, it may cause infection.
