Can Diabetic Patients Have Dental Implants?
There are many precautions before tooth implantation, for example, to evaluate whether there is periodontal disease, whether there is systemic disease, whether there is diabetes. Before dental implantation, we must pay attention to the systemic condition of patients, whether there are systemic diseases, such as heart disease, hypertension, diabetes, and whether they have received heart surgery, or use anticoagulants. If you have any of the above physical conditions, you need to inform the dentist, so that the dentist knows how to evaluate the treatment.
Diabetes is one of the most common diseases in the elderly, and it is the elderly who need dental implants most. In addition to partial missing teeth, some of them will have complete missing teeth. In the past, the whole missing teeth can only be removable dentures. It is very hard to remove and install them every morning and night, and pay attention to whether they are cleaned up! Now there are dental implant technology, which can let the elderly to implant teeth in whole mouth or part of the teeth and then put on the denture cover are all optional methods. But because of diabetes, the old people who need dental implants can’t have a healthy and chewable tooth, which makes many old people disappointed!
Because of the decrease of blood coagulation function in diabetic patients, the wound recovery is slow, and if the dental implant wound recovery is slow, it is easy to cause more infection. Therefore, many doctors do not recommend that diabetic patients receive artificial dental implant. In fact, as long as the dentist and diabetes specialist are consulted before the dental implant operation, and the blood sugar value is controlled within the range of 90-200mg / dl during the dental implant operation, the artificial dental implant operation can be performed. Because as long as the blood glucose value is properly controlled, so that it does not affect the blood coagulation function, it can enjoy the enjoyment of future chewing teeth without foreign body feeling.
If diabetic patients want to receive dental implant surgery, first of all, we should make sure that the blood sugar value has been controlled within the safe range, and carefully treat and control diabetes, so as to avoid that in the course of artificial dental implant, if the blood sugar value of the wound has not yet recovered and rises again, it may cause the wound to be slow to heal, more serious may cause infection, and waste a lot of money on dental implant. In addition, because wound recovery is relatively slow, patients need to have complete and excellent oral health care habits. If oral health is well maintained, there is no need to worry about infection. Therefore, diabetes patients should pay more attention to oral health care, but also pay attention to the whole course of treatment to maintain a stable blood sugar value, so as to safely and safely complete the operation of artificial teeth.
In addition to the control of blood glucose to maintain it in the range of 90-200mg / dl, there is now an advanced technology – minimally invasive dental implant. Minimally invasive dental implant can reduce the wound of artificial dental implant to the minimum. In this way, it is not only not necessary to worry about the operation failure caused by poor coagulation function, but also can reduce the pain and discomfort caused by the operation.
Although minimally invasive dental implant seems to be able to solve the problem of missing teeth for diabetic patients, but the actual situation still needs to ask professional doctors, let professional dentists know your condition in detail, and other physical conditions, in order to carefully evaluate whether it is suitable to carry out artificial dental implant, and also to know which solution to use to deal with the dental implant of diabetes.
