Contraindications for implantation

As you know, one of the most convenient, aesthetically attractive and sometimes even irreplaceable methods of tooth restoration is implantation. As part of this operation, an artificial “root” is installed from titanium to the jaw bone. Dental implants are used as a support for fixing crowns or dentures, whether they are removable or not.

There are 2 main types of contraindications: absolute and relative.

With absolute implantation is not possible at all, if you have:

• Autoimmune diseases: lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis and multiple sclerosis
• blood diseases;
• diseases of the blood-forming organs;
• disorders of the central nervous system;
• tuberculosis;
• diabetes mellitus, not amenable to correction by drugs;

Relative – these are temporary conditions of the patient in which it is impossible to carry out the operation, and diseases that require special control by the doctor:

• insufficient bone;
• malocclusion;
• inflammatory processes in the oral cavity;
• marginal periodontitis, that is, inflammation of the tissues, surrounding teeth;
• diseases of the temporomandibular joint;
• patient age up to 16 years.

Please note that most of these contraindications can be corrected.
