For some patients, the process of osseointegration may be put at risk because of habits or conditions they may have, which may result in them being denied treatment with dental implants. At our Bethlehem, PA office, Lehigh Valley Oral Surgery & Implant Center, it is important to us that we determine whether or not a patient is a good candidate for implant treatment before allowing them to move forward with the procedure.
