If you are, you can reach out to us at Oasis Dental and Dental Implant Specialist Team, for a free consultation on your condition and the options available to you. However, not all patients with missing teeth or tooth can have dental implants.
Individuals that are suitable for permanent teeth have one or more of these outlined conditions:
If you are thinking about getting dental implants and approach your dental specialist with this desire, he or she will consider these factors before advising you on your options:
i. What is the condition of your oral health? Your dental history combined with an X-Ray is used to determine the state of your dental health.
ii. Do you have enough bone density in your jaw? Dental implants can only be placed when you have sufficient bone density for anchorage and success of the procedure. Infections such as gum and periodontal disease, affect you jawbone density.
iii. Are you in good overall health? Your medical history will be used to determine this. Good general health helps to avoid any complications during the recovery period.

Once your dental implants are placed, you will need to care for them as you would your teeth. They are quite easy to maintain, all you need to do is floss and brush at least twice, daily.
At Oasis Dental, our recovering patients have follow-up appointments for us to keep track of their healing process. We also offer cleaning services.
If you are a smoker, you will have to quit. Smoking retards the healing process which in turn affects the long term success of your implants.
Most people experience, bleeding, mild soreness or swelling after the procedure. Fortunately, these can be treated using, first aid or over the counter medicines. You can expect your teeth to function normally in one or two days.
