3 Reasons You May Not Be a Candidate for Dental Implants, Fairbanks North Star, Alaska

Missing teeth not only make you self-conscious, but also affect your ability to bite and chew properly. With exceptional dental implants from Alaska’s North Pole Dental Workshop in Greater Fairbanks, you can regain a full set of teeth easily. However, the clinic’s family dentist Dr. Bauer warns that while effective for most, dental implants can’t be given to every patient.

Below, he explains who wouldn’t make a good candidate for dental implants:

  • Children: Considering their jaws have not reached full maturity, children are the least ideal candidates for dental implants. If an implant is added before their jawbone matures completely, it can prevent further growth and cause teeth to become crooked due to overlapping. Known for his unmatched dental services, Dr. Bauer believes 17 is the earliest age people should be given dental implants. At this age, jawbones are mature enough for handling dental implantation procedures.


  • Individuals With Inadequate Jawbone Density: For your dental implants to be fitted well, it’s essential for your jawbone’s density to be at a certain level. If it’s not dense enough, Dr. Bauer recommends having a bone grafting procedure to help improve your bone density. However, grafting is not effective for everyone and may not show the desirable results for you—making you an unsuitable candidate for dental implants. In the event that you don’t meet the bone density criteria, North Pole’s leading family dentist will offer alternative solutions to meet your dental needs.
  • Patients With Certain Diseases: Anyone suffering from unregulated diabetes, heart problems, bone diseases, or cancer is also unlikely to receive dental implants. According to North Pole’s most affordable dentist, the medicines prescribed for these issues can counteract with the dental implants and result in complications. Thanks to the variety of dental services they offer, North Pole Dental Workshop is ready to cater to your specific requirements. With Dr. Bauer at your service, you can count on receiving the most efficient dental procedures based on your dental and medical history.

Having your best interest at heart, North Pole Dental Workshop is always ready to tailor their services according to your needs. If you are cleared for receiving dental implants, you can trust Dr. Bauer and his team to give you guaranteed results at an affordable rate.
