Are You a Good Candidate for Dental Implants?

How dental implants from your dentists in Augusta and Evans, Georgia can give you back your smile

If you are missing teeth and want dental implants, it’s only natural to wonder if you are a good candidate for them. The good news is just about everyone is a good candidate for dental implants! Dental implants can benefit you and your smile, giving you a completely natural-looking, naturally-functioning smile. Drs. Scott Wingard and Caleb Morris at Summerville Dentistry can restore your smile, thanks to implants, and they have two convenient office locations in Augusta, and Evans, Georgia.

The Requirements

Both your oral and overall health are important factors if you are considering dental implants. If your health is not the best, it can affect both the healing and success of the implants. As a precaution. be sure to let your dentist know if you have diabetes (especially if uncontrolled by medication) and/or a history of radiation to your face or jaws. If you have a history of periodontal disease, it can also affect whether you are a good dental implant candidate.

There are also some lifestyle factors that play an important part in your successful dental implant treatment. Your dental implants may be compromised if you smoke, use tobacco products, or drink alcohol in excessive amounts.

Thorough, regular brushing and flossing are also critical to maintain the health of your dental implants. If you haven’t started an excellent program of taking care of your smile at home, it’s time to start. Make sure that you are:

  • Brushing at least twice a day
  • Flossing at least once each day
  • Visiting your dentist for a full dental exam at least once each year
  • Visiting your dental hygienist for professional dental cleanings at least every six months
