Who is a Good Candidate for a Dental Implant?
Watch this video to learn more about the necessary requirements to qualify for receiving a dental implant.
In brief, someone who has adequate bone. But keep in mind, when we say adequate bone, the length is important and also the breadth is important because the implant comes in different length and different width. So if you have adequate bone and so you would be ideal candidate. If you do not have adequate bone, no problem. We can reconstruct the site by doing the bone graft or augmentation to create enough bone, not only in terms of the height, but also as far as the width that the implant can be placed.
The difference is obviously would take longer time and the cost might be more extra because you need a bone grafting or augmentation and other treatment.
