Many types of patients benefit from Dental Implants. Those with failing dentition, accident victims and others who presently wear full or partial dentures. The success rate of Dental Implants is outstanding but not all patients are suitable candidates. You should be in good health and have a positive attitude. Compliance with post-operative maintenance instructions and good oral hygiene directly affects treatment outcome. Dental Implants restore a lot more than just teeth.
With administration of an anti-inflammatory medication and careful surgical technique, in most cases post-operative discomfort is less than with regular tooth extraction.
“There is now overwhelming evidence that a 2-implant overdenture should become the first choice of treatment for the edentulous mandible. Patients have a significantly higher quality of life and improved nutritional state with stabilized dentures.” from an article in the Journal of the Canadian Dental Association
