The 4 Reasons You Should NOT Get Dental Implants

There's four main reasons why someone should absolutely not get dental implants. 

Number one, is kind of a big one. 

But before we get to that, there are 3 things you HAVE to know first. 

Reason #4 You Shouldn’t Get Dental Implants

This reason is important because to disregard it would have a horrible effect on your whole body.

Think of Dental Implants like a special military unit tasked with an important mission during a chaotic battle.

BUT, If your body is already trying to fight off other diseases like diabetes, infections or other serious pre existing conditions,

It would be like sending your soldiers, to fight on multiple fronts.

Sending in these dental implants is like dropping in another squad right where the biggest battles are raging.

But here's the problem.

Instead of just being an extra team to help, these implants could end up being seen as the enemy by mistake. 

With your immune system soldiers so focused on the battles they're already fighting. 

Your immune system might confuse these implants as a surprise enemy attack, and you'll have a friendly fire situation on your hand. 

The dental implant is essentially a foreign object that we are asking our bodies to accept.

If our body is otherwise healthy, it has no problem healing and accepting the titanium implant.

BUT

If your immune system is already at war, chances are it might not be able to handle these implants properly. 

It's like asking your troops to fight another battle they weren't prepared for.

Reason #3 You Should NOT Get Dental Implants

We have got to make sure we're planning for the future, so there's no major complications down the line. 

Think of your mouth as a home renovation project. 

If you decide to remodel the kitchen when your house is still under construction, you might end up with cabinets in the living room and a fridge in the bathroom.

Similarly getting dental implants when your mouth is still growing is like installing those kitchen cabinets too early. 

It can lead to complications and a design that doesn't quite fit. 

So one of the top reasons someone should not get dental implants is if you're a young person, say teenager or early twenties.

Getting dental implants now is probably not the right solution. 

We have got to make sure we're planning for the future, so there's no major complications down the line. 

Reason #2 You Shouldn’t Get Dental Implants

Have you seen this hilarious YouTube Video before?

Well, it turns out that smoking with dental implants makes about as much sense as this video. 

The chemicals, carcinogens, and basically all the stuff they put in cigarettes and in tobacco really mess up your mouth, and it'll bring the healing process to screeching halt. 

You want to create the best possible conditions for your body to make the implant work.

When you first get a dental implant, your bone needs to accept and fuse with the implant. This is called Osseointegration.

That usually takes a few months for osseointegration to complete.

If you smoke, there's way less oxygen and blood going to that area. 

Which hurts that important process and could even cause the implant to fall out.

Now, Brent was a smoker, and I was able to help him get a new smile. 

He told me, getting this done was his motivation to quit.

Reason #1 You Should Avoid Dental Implants

So one of my hardest days as a Dental Implant Surgeon,

was when a husband had arranged for both him and his wife to come in and look at getting dental implants. 

They both had been wearing dentures for quite some time.

We sat down, took the x-ray, and to both of their joy,

The lady was a candidate!

Then, the most heartbreaking news ever came…

The gentleman was not. 

It’s such a heartbreaking thing for me to go tell him, even though he has saved up for dental implants and desperately wanted to be rid of his dentures.

There was nothing we could do…


See, getting dental implants without enough bone available in your jaw is like building a fence by driving those metal stakes the ground, 

but only being able to drive it an inch deep. 

These stakes don't have anything to firmly anchor to, so they just topple over. 

This happens to so many people who frankly, may have been hoodwinked by the lower upfront cost of dentures. 

They weren't told that every day you spend without you teeth, your jaw bone is shrinking.

Eventually, those people in dentures won't even have enough bone for dentures to fit properly anymore. 

And evenmore heartbreaking, eventually dental implants won’t be an option for those folks anymore either…

So if you have replaced your teeth with something that DOESN’T promote bone health, don't wait too long.

Normally, I'd say people who think they don't have enough bone should not get dental implants.

HOWEVER,

There are now advanced procedures that have unlocked the ability for us to give dental implants to people who normally wouldn't be a candidate. 

We've actually been able to help thousands of people with different circumstances, 

get a beautiful, functional smile again,
