The first question that you will need to ask is: “am I a suitable candidate for a dental implant?”.

Procedures such as teeth whitening may sometimes be a ‘one size fits all’, however this is definitely not the case with dental implants. We recommend that you ask your dentist or an specialist for their opinion, as each case is different, however in general to be suitable you must:

  • Have a reasonable amount of dense bone tissue in your jaw
  • Be free from a condition known as periodontal disease (which is a form of gum disease)
  • Be a non-smoker (you’ll have to give up smoking during the healing process at the very least)
