I am fit and healthy; does that mean I will be suitable for implants?

No, unfortunately this is not always the case. Many local factors must also be considered.

Implants require good quality bone in sufficient quantity and in the correct place to hold and support the implant/s. The space between the remaining teeth is important, as is the load the implant/s will be subjected to. These must be carefully assessed and controlled and there must be enough space for the restoration to be completed. We are here to advise you whether or not these, or any other factors, may mean the implants may not be the most suitable form of treatment for you. You must also be maintaining excellent oral cleanliness and not be suffering from established gum disease.
