The loss of even a single tooth can cause problems in chewing and mastication. If per chance, the tooth goes missing from the front row of teeth, it impacts the beauty of your smile.

Tooth implant treatments - using conventional or all on 4 technique – are very common now and give you a replacement tooth that looks and functions just like natural teeth. But like other medical treatments, you need to ensure that it is the right remedy for your missing teeth problem.

The good news is that anyone in good general and oral health can go for dental implant surgery. People who are very old and have lost teeth owing to natural process of aging can also get set of healthy and pearly white teeth with this procedure.

Dental implant surgery is not recommended for regular smokers. Smoking affects the flow of blood to bone and tissues around gums and teeth. This in turn hinders the healing of bone where the implant is placed. Failure of the titanium implant to fuse with the bone would result in complete failure of the implant treatment. Smokers need to quit the habit completely at least 15 days before they go for tooth implant treatment.

Some medications that are usually prescribed for osteoporosis can also be a hindrance in the success of tooth implant surgery. When you visit your dentist for a consultation on the treatment, make sure you disclose the names and dosages of medicines that you might be taking.

With dental implants it is simple to get teeth as good as your healthy and natural teeth. To ensure the success of treatment, you simply need to go for it in good general health.
