The density of your jaw bone matters.
One of the most important factors in dental implant suitability is having sufficient bone volume in your jaw to properly support your dental implant root. If you lack the proper density in your jawbone, your new tooth may not be able to withstand the pressure exerted when you chew. If this happens, your implant has a high probability of failure. If this is the case for you, you may be able to get a bone graft to restore proper density in your jaw. During this procedure, a donated bone will be transplanted into your jaw and you will be re-evaluated for dental implants after the area has fully healed.
Gum disease is a factor.
Gum disease is a serious issue that could significantly impact your dental implant candidacy. In some situations, gum disease is the primary cause for your tooth loss. In other cases, it can prevent proper placement and healing of your implants. Regardless of the damage it has created in your mouth, it can dramatically increase your chances of implant failure. As such, if you have been diagnosed with gum disease, you will need to have it well under control prior to your dental implant procedure.
