Who needs dental implants?
A sure sign that you need dental implants is if you’re missing teeth. You may have lost a tooth or teeth from an injury, disease, decay, what have you. Whatever the case, it’s a good idea to consider dental implants. You can read why here.
However, just because you’re missing teeth may not mean you’ll be able to get dental implants. You must be in reasonably good health. There are certain conditions that prevent the titanium posts used in dental implants to fuse to your jawbone. This includes cancer, gum disease, uncontrolled diabetes, amongst other health problems. You should go over your medical history and any questions you may have with your periodontist during your consultation.
