Every day, people across Dallas and Fort Worth schedule a dental implant procedure with a prosthodontist. Whether you’re missing teeth or just don’t have the smile you need to boost your self-esteem, there’s a FastNewSmile® service available for you.

Take a minute of self-examination to ensure that you are the right candidate for a successful dental implant procedure.

Do You Have Good Oral Health?

Although most people can be considered as good candidates, oral health is the key to a successful procedure. The type of oral health we look for in a potential patient is someone who:

  • Has enough bone to support the implants
  • Has healthy gums
  • Have fully developed jawbones

Why Does Oral Health Matter?

Oral health matters because if your jaw isn’t in decent condition, then you become a patient who is at risk of dental implant failure. Dental implants are permanent because they are attached and anchored to your jawbone. If you suffer from periodontal disease or have extensive bone loss due to missing teeth, your body may reject your implants.

That’s why at FastNewSmile®, we recommend setting up a free consultation with our prosthodontists to ensure that your oral health is good enough for our single day implant procedure.

Other ‘At Risk’ Patients

Gum disease isn’t the only thing that can hold someone back from being an eligible implant patient. You must also be able to naturally heal from your procedure, so issues like diabetes, cancer, alcohol, and smoking could also make you an at-risk patient.

Other people who are on specific medications that suppress the immune system may also find themselves as risky candidates for oral surgery.

However, if you fall under this category, don’t immediately count yourself out. Our team can easily help you find ways to make your results stick through our thorough pre-surgery assessment.

Are You Patient?

Finally, patience matters. Even though we provide fast services with high success rates, time is something you will have to take into consideration. After your surgery, you won’t be able to waltz out of our office and bite into the first piece of food you pick up. The healing process can take from a few weeks to a few months, depending on the extent of your procedure. Not to worry though, our team will guide you through the do’s and don’ts of post-implant maintenance.
