Are Dental Implants Worth The Risk?

Are Dental Implants Worth The Risk?

Before deciding on what corrective dental treatment to avail, like dental implants or dentures, in Edina, Minnesota, a dependable dentist will need to examine your mouth first to make sure you are a suitable candidate for dental implant surgery. 

A candidate for dental implants should be in good oral and overall health. A suitable candidate includes those with healthy gum tissues, with no visible symptoms of tooth decay or periodontal disease, and sufficient jawbone density. A periodontist, a dental practitioner who specializes in treating gum disease, may be the person you need to see if you are exhibiting common signs of gum disease, such as swollen, red, sensitive, or bleeding gums. This is especially crucial before even considering dental implant surgery.

As previously mentioned, having a healthy jawbone is one of the key requirements to become a suitable candidate for dental implants. Your dental implants will fuse with your jawbone over time. The dental implant will essentially become part of your jaw and gums. Those who are committed to maintaining good oral hygiene make excellent candidates for dental implants.


Your oral health and overall health will be evaluated to ensure that you are a suitable candidate for dental implants. Our amazing dentist in Edina, Minnesota will educate you on a number of different implant choices best for your needs and budget. These may include:

  1. Single tooth implant. One implant and a crown are sufficient to replace a single lost tooth.
  2. Full-arch. This type of implant uses around 4 to 6 dental implants to restore an entire arch of lost teeth.
  3. Implant supported dentures. This type of implant replaces several teeth all at once.
  4. Implant bridges. Uses dental implants as a base to support a regular bridge instead of the usual teeth.
