Can you get dental implants if your gums are infected?

Patients shouldn’t have issues with their dental implants if there’s no active oral infection. Even patients who have suffered from advanced periodontal (gum) disease with bone loss may be able to get dental implants. However, this would require bone augmentation with a bone graft before the implant placement. 

Patients who have had gum disease or are prone to gum inflammation should take special care with their oral health and hygiene to maintain their gums and dental implants. Severe gum inflammation while wearing dental implants can result in implant failure and require another tooth replacement treatment. 

Every case is unique, so the only way to know if you’re a good candidate for dental implants in Bellevue, NE is to schedule an appointment with your dentist at Kennedy Dental. We’ll perform a comprehensive oral health evaluation, including x-rays, to determine your health status and candidacy for bone grafting, dental implant surgery, and any other necessary treatments for tooth replacement.
