As a dentist, you should understand that not everybody is a candidate for tooth implants some problems demand other treatment options. Examining the patient is always essential before carrying out the procedure to avoid further health complications. Tooth implant procedures are only for the patients who meet the following requirements;
1. The patient should have a strong immunity and should not have any health condition that might affect the healing of the bone after the procedure.
2. Tooth implant candidates should have enough bone space to accommodate the implant or have gone through a bone grafting procedure.
3. The patients should have either one or more missing teeth and ready to commit some months for the tooth implant procedure. Remember this procedure takes time, and regular dental checkups are essential to monitor the recovery progress.
At this stage, consultation is vital between the dentist and the patients. The patient should agree to undergo the procedure, and the dentist should offer appropriate advice on the way forward.

After the healing of the gum, the next step is to attach the artificial teeth to the implant. The patient should now choose between the fixed or removable teeth.
