Dental implants – Am I a good candidate?

  • Potential candidates should have good overall oral hygiene and be in good health.
  • Taking prescription drugs for diabetes or any other systemic medication  does not rule the treatment given that the condition is under control, and it does not lead to any oral and maxillofacial surgery risk.
  • There should be enough bone density present. If not, it can be surgically fixed with a graft. It may also be necessary for a sinus lift to move the sinus up and make room for bone grafting in the upper jaw.
  • Does not have any form of periodontal disease
  • Does not smoke or is willing to give up smoking during the Osseointegration period.
  • Should be committed and motivated to healthy lifestyle habits such as performing post-surgical visits and consultations, brushing, and flossing the teeth regularly. The American Dental Association advises that “careful oral hygiene is essential for the success of the implant.”

Lake Elsinore All-on-4 dental implant

This treatment replaces all of the teeth on an upper or lower jaw, or both, with a permanent, bridge or denture atop at least a minimum of four implants. The specialist inserts the four implants into the arch, and the dentures are then secured to them. Although the process of osseointegration will take some time, the patient isn’t without their teeth. Many patients who have used removable dentures have chosen to replace them with implant supported dentures. 

Same day dental implant

Unlike the conventional type that can require weeks between when the implants are placed and the crowns are put on, same day restorations can be done in one appointment. This means that patients can start enjoying life immediately, like smiling, speaking normally, and even eating their favorite foods again. You don’t have to live a single day without teeth.
