Gum disease and implants – What you NEED to know

March 12, 2013

I often hear patients tell me that they have been told they are not suitable for dental implants due to gum disease.

This simply isn’t true, and modern science suggests implants CAN be placed.  So what do you need to know?

Dental implants are susceptible to the same bacteria which cause gum disease.  The key to success is the gum disease needs to be under control, and as long as this is the case implants are incredibly successful.  You will need professional support on a regular basis, but this is true even if you have had gum disease and decide not to have an implant placed.

So if you’ve had gum disease in the past and have a plastic denture, you can now get rid of it for something which gives you much more of your chewing power back.
