With modern dentistry, techniques and thorough planning most people can have dental implants placed. In general, dental implants are most successful in individuals who have good general health and sufficient jawbone density to support the implant.

In some cases, individuals with certain medical conditions, such as uncontrolled diabetes or a compromised immune system, may not be suitable candidates for dental implants. Additionally, individuals who have a history of heavy tobacco use or alcohol consumption may be at a higher risk of complications from dental implants. At White Space Dental we evaluate a person’s oral health and medical history to determine the correct protocol to follow to successfully place dental implants for them.
