Osseointegrated dental implants are an excellent option for a wide range of individuals who have lost one or more teeth. Candidates for osseointegration include:
Patients with Single or Multiple Missing Teeth
Osseointegration can be used to replace a single tooth, several teeth, or an entire arch of teeth, making it a versatile option for various cases.
Good Oral Health
Candidates with healthy gums and enough bone volume in the jaw can support the implant. In cases of bone loss, procedures like bone grafts may be necessary to prepare the site for implant placement.
Smoking has a negative effect on the success of osseointegration. Patients are encouraged to quit or refrain from smoking ahead of the treatment process.
Commitment to Oral Care
Candidates must be committed to maintaining good oral hygiene and regular dental check-ups to ensure the long-term success of the dental implants.
Most candidates are in good overall health and free from conditions or medications that could interfere with the healing process. To learn more, schedule an appointment with Harmony Dental of Burbank!
