CAN IMPLANTS BE MADE FOR DIABETICS?
Diabetes does not constitute an obstacle for implant treatment. On the contrary, many patients with diabetes may lose teeth more quickly and need more implant treatment due to the negative effect of the disease on the gums.
However, in order to apply this treatment, the first condition is that the diabetes of the patient is under control. Apart from this, there are some necessary tests and we make all our clinical planning based on these tests. These tests help us to know and follow the patient's sugar level in monthly, quarterly and instant periods. The results of this test, called HbA1c, help us understand whether our patient is at a suitable time for implant treatment.
