Can Anything Be Done If I Am Not an Immediate Dental Implant Candidate?

Posted on 2/15/2024 by Weo Admin

Explaining why you are not an implant candidate will determine your best alternative.

Transferring Bones

Immediate implant ineligibility is usually due to insufficient jaw bone density or volume. A procedure called bone grafting can be done to strengthen your jawbone as well as help form new bones. Bone grafting utilizes a small piece of bone from another area in your body.

Addressing Dental Health Concerns

Addressing any pre-existing oral health issues that might cause ineligibility, such as gum disease or an infection, is critical. By dealing with these issues, you will improve your oral health, which may result in you being allowed to have the implant procedure.

Improving General Health

In some cases of general health issues, just like uncontrolled diabetes or osteoporosis, you might not qualify for dental implants. If you and your doctor can help manage these problems, you will likely move in the right direction toward implant eligibility.

Ways of Living Adjustments

If actions such as smoking negatively impact your qualifications, you can improve the likelihood of this happening by adjusting your lifestyle choices. One standard piece of advice given to patients before implant surgery is to quit smoking, as this may slow the healing process and increase the chances of failed implants.

Be Patient and Make a Plan

It takes time for bone transplants, dental condition treatments, and overall health changes to take effect. Future implant surgery can be successful with patience and careful preparation with your dental and medical providers.
