Dental implants are a popular solution for those with missing teeth, but like all dental procedures, they aren't the right fit for every patient. However, advancements in oral health technology have made implants more feasible for a growing number of patients. Following are four important criteria for discerning who's a good implant candidate and who may benefit from other treatments.

Your Gums Are in Good Health

Patients who have gum tissue that's been damaged by periodontal disease or other types of oral conditions may not be the best implant candidates. The gum tissue needs to be strong and healthy in order for the implants to be able to be firmly secured in the patient's mouth and to remain in place afterwards.

You've Got Good Bone Density

Because implants mimic natural tooth roots, they work best in people with strong bone density. Those with minimal bone density may not have enough bone to adequately support the implants. However, there have been substantial improvements in implant technology in recent years that increase the success rate of implants in those with less than optimal bone density, so let your dental health care professional discuss what can work for you.

You Enjoy Good Overall Oral Health

The best candidates for dental implants are those who enjoy good oral health. If you've taken care of your teeth and gums throughout your lifetime, you're probably an excellent candidate for dental implants. Even if you've had the occasional missing tooth, abscess, bout with gum disease or cavities, having dental implants may be the right solution for you.

You're a Basically Patient Person

It can take several months for the mouth to completely heal after implant surgery, and that means patience is an important virtue for implant candidates. However, if you're the type who doesn't mind waiting a little while for good things, implants may be the right solution for your missing teeth. Keep in mind that nothing takes the place of advice from your dental care professional, so be sure to discuss your available options thoroughly before selecting treatment.
