How do I know if I’m a
not good candidate for dental implants?

Generally healthy adults are good candidates. Those who may not be right for dental implants include those with bone loss, poor overall health (especially from chronic conditions), and those with uncontrollable gum disease. The best way to know, however, is with a consultation. Dr. Patel is happy to review any concerns with you during your visit.
