Am I A Candidate For Dental Implants?

Posts that support replacement of teeth are known as dental implants. The dental implants in Tijuana fit directly into the jawbone, hence holding the false teeth in place just like how roots support natural teeth.

It is a metal post with an internal clip that helps to hold the false teeth in place. They are generally made of titanium. They are supposed to last for the longest period in life if one maintains good oral hygiene and looks after them well.

After a surgery, to fix the implant the jawbone has to fuse with the titanium rod which takes several months. Tijuana Bridges, dentures and crowns at times are attached to the implants to reinstate the missing teeth. Replacing all the teeth one would need six implants for the upper jaw and either four or six for the lower jaw.

In order to have the implants, one has to undergo at least one surgery. Your jaws have to be strong to support the implants and also have healthy gums. Some dentist will prefer not inserting them if one is a smoker for it can affect the outcome of the treatment. For those who have undergone radiotherapy implants are less likely to be successful to them. Implants are not offered to those taking medicines such as bisphosphonates which are used to treat bones. More research is been done to find out if conditions such as osteoporosis or diabetes can affect how implants work.
