What Factors Contribute to Long Term Success of Dental Implants


Posted on 9/21/2011 by Dr. Franco
Couple smiling about dental Implant success in Irving,TXDental implants are becoming increasingly common among those who wish to replace missing teeth. If you have chosen to have implants, there are several factors to consider that will determine the success of the procedure. Your implant dentist serving Irving TX will take these factors into account during your dental implant consultation.

Is Eligible for Dental Implants?


Almost anyone who has missing teeth is eligible for dental implants, but certain prerequisites make it more likely that dental implants will be successful. These prerequisites include:

•  Overall good health
•  Sufficient bone mass to support the implant root
•  Willingness to follow postoperative instructions
•  Willingness to care for implants properly in the long term

Preparing for Dental Implants


If your implant dentist feels that the mass of your jawbone is insufficient to support implants, he might recommend bone grafting to build up the tissue that will bond to the root portion of your implants. This will ensure that the implants will remain strong and provide an efficient chewing and biting surface.

A healing interval is required after bone grafting, during which time you must be careful to follow your implant dentist’s instructions. In the next stage, the root portion is placed, also leading to a healing interval of several weeks.

How you take care of your mouth and teeth during these healing periods is an important part of ensuring the long-term success of your implants. Be sure to follow your dentist’s instructions in order to keep your gums and teeth strong and healthy during this process.
