Dental implants are for anyone who has missing teeth. There are many factors to weigh up when having this remarkable treatment.

When you have dental implants in Farnham at Elmsleigh House Dental Clinic, we will go through everything you need to know. If you make the decision to go ahead, we want you to be as well informed as possible and ready to revitalise your smile.

Do you need them?

If you have missing teeth or unhealthy teeth that have deteriorated beyond repair then you are likely to want some sort of replacement treatment. There are other options you can consider such as full or partial dentures. However, there are few options that offer the functionality and natural look of dental implants.

Dental implants in Farnham are chosen by patients who want to have a permanent and low maintenance solution where the teeth are fixed in the mouth.

Are you a suitable candidate?

Most people are either suitable for implants immediately or can have preparation to create the right conditions. However, there are some circumstances or medical conditions that may mean you need to consider a different option.

When you have an initial consultation, your dentist will talk you through everything you need to know and will ask you about your health and medical history. They also do a thorough examination to check how many dental implants you need, where they might be placed and whether you have the requisite amount of jawbone material to support them. If you do not have the latter then you still have options like a bone graft or sinus lift that your dentist will talk to you about.

If you have any general health issues, it may be advisable to wait until these are resolved or under control before proceeding. This is because you need to be able to tolerate the healing process without compromising your well-being.
