Advanced gum disease causes the gums to pull away from the teeth and weakens bone. Implants would not be recommended until the gum disease has been treated and reserved. Diabetes damages the body’s natural healing mechanisms. Patients with diabetes usually take longer to recover from surgery and can experience longer recovery periods. This impaired healing process presents a greater risk of infection. Postprocedural infections are treatable, but they can lead to implant failure in some cases. Who…
