Frequently Asked Questions
Are dental implants the best way to replace missing teeth?
Dental professionals widely agree that implants can achieve the most natural looking and long-lasting solution for missing or damaged teeth. Their durability, functionality and realistic appearance has led to growing demand as patients look beyond traditional dentures and bridges to a more effective solution for tooth loss.
Would dental implants work for me?
Dental implants are suitable for most adults, provided they have sufficient bone tissue.
What is the success rate for dental implants?
Dental implants have a success rate of over 97%. Contraindications for implants include:
– Periodontal gum disease
– Teeth grinding
– Heavy smoking
– Severe or poorly managed diabetes
– High alcohol intake
– Conditions that suppress the immune system
What can be done if I don’t have sufficient bone tissue to support implants?
Inadequate bone tissue may necessitate a surgical bone grafting procedure before implantation. Over time, bone in the area of missing teeth will naturally shrink and a bone graft may be required to ensure stability for the implant. During your consultation, you will be advised whether a bone graft or a sinus lift procedure will be necessary in your case to ensure the stability of the implant.
