Hereford Dental & Implant Clinic news
Before you can become a viable candidate for dental implants you will need to have your gum disease treated. Advanced Gum Disease can lead to gum recession and bone loss which can mean the chances of having dental implants are severely reduced.
After you have seen the periodontist and have had your gum disease treated, the dental implants dentist will be able to identify if you are able to have dental implants. If you have suffered from extensive bone loss you may need a bone graft procedure before implants can be placed.
Spotting the early signs of Gum Disease is essential in preventing any further damage and potential tooth loss.
If you experience any of these symptoms it is recommended that you go and see your dentist straight away. They will be able to examine whether or not you have gum disease and how advanced it is. The earlier it is caught the easier it will be to treat with less serious consequences.
