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.
