I Have Diabetes, Can I Get Dental Implants?

Drphoto I have diabetes and i am missing two front teeth on the bottom row .I cannot wear any parcials that will fit. So will implants work?

Dr. Hadgis: If the diabetes is under control, it should not be a problem. Bone grafts will be necessary prior to Implant placement, if there is inadequate bone width, which is common.

Dr. Hadgis,

Is it true that a diabetic is more prone to infections when it comes to dental implant?
Thanks

The above statement is seen to be contradictory. The situation is very critical and need an experience complainer to resolve it.
