Understanding Dental Implants and Gum Disease: Can I Get Implants If I Have Gum Problems?


March 22, 2024

Can individuals with gum disease have a dental implant procedure? Optimal gum health is imperative for the most successful cosmetic dentistry outcomes, especially with dental implants

Find out what might prevent you from having tooth implants and other types of cosmetic dentistry if you are currently experiencing gum problems. Our guide to successful dental implants and oral health will put you on the right track when it comes to proactive dental solutions. 

Right from the beginning, we must stress that before you book dental surgery you should have a professional dental consultation to evaluate your oral health and smile makeover goals. 

Barriers To Successful Dental Work Outcomes

Successful dental work outcomes rely on a solid foundation of optimal oral health, and barriers, such as gum disease, poor oral hygiene, and other factors, can hinder the effectiveness of fixed bridges or dental implant treatments by compromising the stability and longevity of implant and crown work for example. 

When you have a professional dental implant consultation, your dentist or dental surgeon will be checking for these factors: 

  • Gum Disease: Inflamed gums and gum infection can prevent successful dental outcomes.
  • Poor Oral Hygiene: Inadequate brushing and flossing may lead to plaque buildup and bleeding gums which can have a negative effect on dental work.
  • Sore Gums: Discomfort, gum pain, and swollen gums can impact the success of dental procedures.
  • Cavities and Tooth Decay: Untreated cavities and bad teeth can compromise the integrity of dental work.
  • Misaligned Teeth: Poor tooth alignment may affect the effectiveness of certain dental treatments.
  • Inadequate Bone Density: Insufficient bone support can impact the success of procedures like dental implants.
  • Medical Conditions: Systemic health issues may influence dental work outcomes. For example, conditions like diabetes, autoimmune disorders, and/or cardiovascular diseases may impact good oral health and could influence the success of dental procedures.
  • Poor Nutrition: Inadequate nutrient intake can affect overall oral health and the healing process of dental implants.

While it may not be apparent initially, understanding potential concerns before entering into dental surgery is important. Acknowledging conditions like gum disease beforehand ensures that you are well-informed, preventing any surprises and paving the way for a smoother journey towards achieving the smile of your dreams.

Prerequisite for Dental Implant Success Is Good Mouth Health! 

Can I have dental implants with gum disease? Cosmetic dental work, including dental implant work, with gum disease does not lead to optimal outcomes. 

Before embarking on any tooth implant or fixed bridge dental procedure, eliminating gum disease and gum problems is a high priority. This can be effectively accomplished through a variety of approaches, including antibiotic therapy, comprehensive tooth and gum cleaning, or, in severe cases, surgical intervention. Periodontal gum disease not only slows down the proper healing of dental implants but may affect the implantation process.
