The Causes That Could Delay Dental Implant Treatment

Dental Implant

Deciding to have dental implant is a life-changing choice, and if you’re reading this, we hope you’re on the edge of selecting Fordham Dental Office as the dental practice near you to help you through the whole affordable dental implants process.

I have personally sat down with hundreds of patients from Bronx surrounding area over the years to discuss the treatment, so I undoubtedly understand all the feelings and anxieties that come up when deciding whether or not dental implants are right for you. Even once you choose to go ahead, there are further concerns that can have an impact on when the work is done.

Every patient is different, but there are a few key aspects that in my experience people need to be aware of. The good news is that at Fordham Dental Office can help you direct all of them.


Diabetes has been shown to be connected to gum disease. Those with the condition may have poor glucose control, and if so, this could slow the dental implant healing process. However, we are highly experienced in helping patients who may be at risk from diabetes, and by working closely with your GP, diabetes doesn’t have to rule implants out. It may simply be a case of more broad monitoring of your health before going ahead.

Blood Pressure

Dental implants themselves don’t have any effect on blood pressure, but if you have hypertension and are taking medication to control it, your dentist needs to be aware. Again, this is not something to be concerned about, and as with diabetes, we will work with your GP to take this into account and ensure the procedure runs smoothly.


Dental implants are a major investment, though of course our patients regularly tell us the experience is completely life-changing and absolutely worth every penny. But what happens if you don’t currently have the funds? Fortunately, this doesn’t have to be an issue. We offer financing options that allow you to spread the cost so you certainly don’t need to pay everything up front. You can read all about 0% finance and other options here.
