07 Nov Can I get dental implants if I have gum disease?
Does gum disease prevent you from getting dental implants?
Most google searches say no but we at London Dental Specialists disagree!!
Yes, you can get dental implants as long as the gum disease is treated at the same time. For a long time, there was significant concern that patients with gum disease cannot have dental implants because we were worried that gum disease would cause a gum infection.
Whilst it is true that patients with gum disease have more dental implant problems, this only applies to patients with unstable gum disease. We are so confident about this, we offer a 10-year warrantee on all our dental implants
