Basal dental implants are recommended for smokers because they are not affected by bone resorption.
Patients who smoke are not accepted by implant dentists who place conventional dental implants because the heat from cigarettes, whether tobacco cigarettes or electronic cigarettes, damages the gum tissue where conventional dental implants are placed. These gum tissues are subject to resorption causing the implants to loosen and fall.
Basal dental implants are set in much deeper, harder bone, the cortical bone. As a result, basal implants are not affected by the resorption of soft gum tissue. It is therefore possible to place dental implants on smokers. This is the best solution for a complete dental restoration of both jaws.
A large number of patients who undergo basal dental implant treatment are current or former smokers. It’s the only effective solution to restore their smile and their ability to eat normally.
