Determining Your Implant Candidacy

To ascertain your qualification for dental implants, a comprehensive evaluation and diagnostics from our implant dentists at Wyoming Dental Implants are required. We will assess your gums, bone, and teeth condition. Both dental and medical records are also needed to evaluate any systemic conditions or harmful lifestyle habits, such as smoking. Here are the factors that influence dental implant candidacy:

Gum Health

Dental implants need a healthy oral environment for long-term success. If an infection is present, it can damage both the gum tissues and bone. Active gum disease will require treatment before dental implants can be placed to prevent failure.

Bone Volume

The health of your jawbone is crucial to the success of dental implants. Without proper density and volume, dental implants will lack adequate support. Bone may need to be rebuilt and strengthened through bone grafting surgery.

Systemic Conditions

Underlying medical conditions such as diabetes and immune system disorders can make it more challenging for your body to heal after surgery. Systemic disease also increases the risk of infection after surgery. Having these conditions doesn’t mean we can't offer you dental implants, but we may need to adjust your treatment plan to enhance the chances of a successful outcome.

Physical Health

With proper maintenance, dental implants have the potential to last for the rest of your life. This includes maintaining excellent physical and oral health. If you smoke, consider quitting before your surgery and practice good daily oral hygiene habits​.
