Recovering from tooth loss can be different for everyone. With a wide range of factors that can influence the health and integrity of the rest of your smile, fully restoring your smile means replacing as much of your health tooth structure as possible, as well as addressing the factors that may have led to the loss of your tooth or teeth. Today, we examine a few of the factors that go into the success of dental implants when it comes to replacing lost teeth and helping patients regain more of their good oral health and bite function.

Your underlying oral health

The state of your oral health is one of the most significant factors in your dental implants’ success. That’s especially true if you’ve lost one or more teeth due to the progression of gum disease, which is the leading cause of tooth loss for adults. Gum disease and other chronic oral health conditions can continue to impact your oral health even after you’ve replaced your lost teeth, and can compromise your dental implants as well as your remaining healthy teeth. To ensure your smile restoration’s success, it’s important to ensure that your gums and oral tissues are healthy and free of disease.

The quality of your treatment process

The need for tooth replacement can be different for everyone, but the need for quality treatment is universal. Many general dental practices are not equipped to perform the entire dental implant process, and the success of their patients’ smile restoration depends largely on who they refer them to for their implant placement. At our office, we’re dedicated to providing high-quality treatment and services at every step of the process, which is why we’ve dedicated our practice to using advanced technology and implant techniques to ensure the overall quality of your smile restoration.

Your care and attention after they’re placed

The ability to restore your smile by replacing your lost teeth roots has important long-term advantages for your oral health. Yet, like your natural teeth, your dental implants and restoration will require your continued attention and care to remain strong and functional. It’s important to stick to a consistently excellent dental hygiene routine, and to attend regular visits with your dentist to ensure the continued success of your dental implants.
