Can everyone have dental implants in Ealing?

Whether you are missing one or more teeth as a result of an accident, gum disease, or old age, chances are that you are considering dental implants. Most patients are suitable for dental implants. But sometimes, dental implants may not be the most viable solution for replacing missing teeth.

Dental Implants in EalingAt Ikon Dental Suite, we encourage patients of all ages and backgrounds to consider replacing their missing teeth with dental implants in Ealing. Age is not a barrier for dental implants, as long as the patient is old enough to have all their permanent teeth. Our experienced dentists will examine your mouth in detail and help you make a decision about dental implants in Ealing.

Conditions that can influence your eligibility for dental implants

Factors that can influence the success of dental implants include:

  • Your oral health
  • Your general health
  • The condition of your jawbone
  • Gum disease
  • Diabetes and other illnesses
  • Smoking and alcohol.

Dental implants usually fuse with the jawbone without any problems in people with good oral and overall health. However, smokers, heavy drinkers, patients with diabetes or heart disease and patients with gum disease are not great candidates for dental implants because all of these conditions can affect either the proper osseointegration of dental implants or hinder the longevity of dental implants in the long run. Luckily, some of these conditions can be treated, whereas others can be closely monitored, allowing some of these patients to replace their missing teeth with dental implants.

Dental implants and the jawbone

To fuse properly and act as effective tooth roots, dental implants need a minimum amount of bone tissue to be supported. Any patients who are interested in dental implants in Ealing will be assessed to ensure that they have sufficient jawbone to support dental implants. If that’s not the case, patients can opt for a bone graft or an alternative implant procedure such as All-on-4.
