What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are metal frames or posts dentists use to replace their clients’ teeth. Your dentists will position the dental implants directly beneath your gums. This may sound painful. But thanks to anesthetics, you won’t feel pain during your surgery.
Dentists use implants for artificial teeth as the implants act as support for your jawbone. With dental implants, any bridges or dentures will be securely in place without slipping or causing pain and discomfort in your mouth.
You don’t have to use implants if you’re getting artificial teeth. However, your dentures or bridges may be uncomfortable, and your dentist will have to do much more “prep” work around your other teeth.
Who Can Get Dental Implants?
Most people can get dental implants, but some can’t. You must consult with your dentist to determine whether you can get dental implants. But some factors influence whether you can get dental implants or not.
Your Gums Aren’t Healthy.
Your gum plays a pivotal part in your surgery for dental implants as it provides support and securely holds your artificial teeth. When patients experience degradation in their gum tissue, this is usually due to heavy tobacco smoking, or you suffer from gum disease.
If your dentist notices this, they may recommend you against dental implants. Because should you get dental implants, you’re at greater risk of developing an infection.
You Don’t Have Enough Bone in Your Jaw.
Like your gums, your jaw is exceptionally vital for getting dental implants. Dental implants have titanium roots, and if your jaw is too weak to support this, it won’t be possible to fuse the implants to the jawbone. Fortunately, there may be a solution – sometimes, oral surgeons extract bone from other parts of the body and use that bone to strengthen your jaw.
Not all, but most dentists don’t do surgery for dental implants on people younger than 18 years old. People under 18 will often undergo future changes in their bones and jaw structure. So, getting dental implants may cause discomfort or severe issues in your jawbone if you’re that young.
You Have a Systemic Disease
A few diseases make it unlikely to have dental implants installed successfully. These systemic diseases include:
- Parkinson’s disease
- Any autoimmune disease
- Thyroid disorders
Having this disease often leads to deterioration in your jawbone tissue which means your dental implant surgery won’t be successful.

How to Care for Dental Implants
Once you get your dental implants, you have to care for them well. Ensure you do the following for quick healing after dental implants and avoid infection.
- Brush your teeth twice daily
- Brush under and around your crown
- Use low-abrasive toothpaste. It’s best to ask your dentist for recommendations.
- Use the oral irrigator your dentists suggest
If you follow these tips, you can take good care of your dental implants. The after-care is so paramount for dental implants that some dentists decline patients with psychological disorders. This is in case they fail to take care of their dental implants.
