8- Is it a counter effect to place dental implants on smokers or someone with diabetes, periodontitis?
Basal Implants is the best option in situations in which the patient wants quick recovering to their normal oral function, when previously suffering periodontitis. They are also a great solution for patients who are
smokers, due to the fact those types of implants are placed in the depth of the bone structure (hard bone), in comparison to the traditional implants which are placed in the soft bone, this lowers the risk of infection.
9- Can Dental Implants be placed on patients who do not have enough bone (bone atrophy)?
Basal Implants is the best option in situations in which the patient wants a quick recovery to their normal oral function, after previously suffering from insufficient amount of bone (bone atrophy). This has the advantage of less surgical involvement because the basal implants do not require additional surgical procedures for bone augmentation (a procedure which helps provide enough bone to place classical implants).

The use of waterpik, combined with a toothbrush and a toothpaste, you will have good and healthy oral hygiene.
