What Can Prevent You From Getting Dental Implants

Successful dental implants depend on the ability to mount to your bones. There are a number of factors that will stop you from getting dental implants. In fact, cancer, smoking, radiation to the jaw, and alcoholism can cause you to be a non-candidate for dental implants. It is very important for you to tell your doctor about your full medical history and even the medications that you’re taking.

When And How Dental Implants Are Placed


A dental assessment is required before you can receive dental implants. Our office will take scans to determine if you’re a candidate for dental implants. At times, oral surgery or other treatments are required before dental implants can be placed. A study model is created for your teeth and your bite to ensure the proper installation of your implants.


Dental implants require a surgical procedure that places a small metal screw in your jaw line that creates root stimulation. After approximately 2 to 6 months the dentist can begin to attach the artificial tooth or teeth to its appropriate site in your jaw line. At this point in the procedure, you’ll have a revitalized award winning smile. Dr. Hervas offers free consultations to tell you if you quality for dental implants.

The Different Types Of Dental Implants

Single Tooth Replacement

Single dental implants are for a missing tooth. A custom crown is mounted or screwed to the abutment and this produces the part that you see. The new tooth will match the exact shade and shape of the surrounding teeth.

Multiple Teeth Replacement

If you have more than one missing tooth multiple fixed implants is a solution. A custom bridge is created that allows the connection. Once they’ve healed your tooth implants can be successfully mounted.

Removable Dentures Over Implants

If your entire top or bottom teeth are missing a customized implant can be created for you. However, only 4 implants can be added to support the top teeth. Your bone density has a major role in your candidacy for dental implants.

Dental implants are an increasingly popular way to improve your smile. Dental implants will allow you teeth to look and function in the same manner. The only difference is how they are attached to the surrounding bone. Your gum tissue may begin to grow onto the dental implants, this indicates that your tooth implants were successful.

You only have one smile and it is very important for you to protect it. Dental implants will assure you of an award winning smile that will give you back your confidence. Dental implants are also called artificial replacements for your teeth. You can pay for dental implants up front, or contact our office for information about medical lenders.
