This might well burst some people’s bubbles; you may have dreamed of dental implants for years; you’ve probably already booked your train ticket to London or your flight to Poland and now we are about to reveal that you can’t actually have them. Well actually, we are probably not, as there are very few people who are generally not suitable for dental implants and many of them are pretty obvious.
You should not consider dental implants for young children who feel self-conscious during the transition from milk teeth to adult teeth. Implants are a permanent solution and thus this would damage the long-term health of your children’s mouth. Also, people with very bad gums, perhaps diseased gums, who have lost a tooth due to this illness, should be aware that dental implants are not a solution to the problem. They provide an aesthetic façade but the root of the gum degradation needs to be tackled in order to keep hold of the teeth which remain. You should also discuss what specific implants are made of with your dentist to make sure you aren’t allergic to anything.
