Are Dental Implants Safe?
|•||Disease: A common type of bacterial infection in many adults is gum disease. We will want the patient to have gum disease or periodontitis under control before surgery. A bacterial infection in the mouth can be a source of infection at the surgical site.|
|•||Decreased Healing: There are many reasons a patient may not heal at a normal rate. This can include a medical problem such as diabetes, a medication they are taking, or if the patient smokes. We will want to help the patient increase their healing rate before surgery. This may include making changes to their daily habits or discussing changes with their physician.|
|•||Inadequate Bone: During the planning phase it is necessary to examine and evaluate the bone mass. For many patients, it will be necessary to bulk up the bone with a bone graft procedure.|
|•||Poor Planning: The surgery for placing a dental implant is simple, the planning is complex. You want to have your implant placed by someone who understands the planning process like our team at Westlake Oral and Plastic Surgery|
