Are you suitable for Dental Implants?

Written by Will Murphy, 24th March, 2015

When a patient comes to see me in the specialist dental implant clinic in Birmingham they often have no idea if they are suitable for a dental implant. I am usually looking at a number of things.

Taking a generally healthy mouth for granted, I look closely at how much bone is left where the tooth or teeth used to be. But how can we be sure when the jaw bone is covered in gum soft tissue?

A huge development over the last five years is the introduction of CT scanners. These look just like X-ray machines but can create a 3D image. This allows me to place implants predictably and safely taking care to look after the vital structures of your mouth.

So without any surgical intervention I can see inside the jaw bone and know how the treatment should pan out in advance.
