SILVER SPRING, MD, January 10, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Are you considering a dental implant to be your next dental treatment? Tooth loss is a serious issue, and you can't leave it untreated. But it's hard to be proactive if you don't wish to wear a bridge or get dentures. Maybe a dental implant procedure seems like a great idea to you, but one concern is holding you back-are you a good candidate? Drs. David Rever and Tamdan Vodinh, dentists in Silver Spring, want all of their patients to be well informed decision makers, which is why they break down who is a good dental implant candidate.
"In regards to getting a dental implant, there are a few things we like to see in a candidate: healthy gums, good oral hygiene habits and suitable amount of jawbone in affected area. If there is enough jawbone and healthy gum tissue, it's easier to anchor an implant. We will discuss candidacy at the first consultation, and all patients have a chance to talk to us about the possibility of a dental implant procedure," says Dr. Rever, Silver Spring dentist.
As Dr. Rever stated, a dentist will need to consult with a patient before determining candidacy. The main reason for doing so is to identify any underlying conditions that could possibly affect the results. Diabetes, connective tissue-diseases, hemophilia and immune deficiencies are some chronic diseases/systemic problems that need to be discussed and looked at to see if any of them pose an issue for a patient. Even if you have one of these conditions, it is still possible to get a dental implant. Advanced technology and techniques have raised the percentage of successful implant procedures-there is an overall 95 percent success rate for this type of procedure.
It's very important to disclose all medical history to your dentist, so the two of you can discuss treatment and options. Also, patients who are pregnant or still have a developing jawbone may need to wait until a later date to schedule a consultation and dental implant procedure.
"We walk through the entire process with our patients. And we pride ourselves on being honest and up front with patients. We want to give everyone the same options. Since dental materials are biocompatible, the body easily accepts an implant and synthetic tooth, which is why many patients, even ones with a chronic condition, can still get a dental implant. We take precautions for all variables," explains Dr. Vodinh.
