Dental Implants Advantages and Disadvantages

User Level:
Advantages of implant use includes: improved appearance and speech, increased comfort, easier eating, better self-esteem and oral health, durability and convenience.
The best candidates for dental implants are those who have good oral hygiene, a minimum of bone loss, non-smokers, and individuals without disorders like diabetes or heart disease. A thorough examination and discussion with a dentist about implants, is important. Some individuals may not seem ideal candidates, but a dentist may be able to still see value in the procedure.
