Dental implants are not a recent innovation, and dentists have used them in their modern form since the early 1980s. In the last 30 years, dental implants have evolved into a very predictable and successful treatment for patients in Gasport, NY who want to replace missing teeth. Statistically, the impressive success rate of dental implants is between 97 and 99 percent, making them an excellent long-term investment.
Reasons a Dental Implant Won't Work
While dental implant failure is infrequent, certain conditions can create an environment in your mouth that's not conducive to the successful integration of your dental implant with the bone in your jaw. If you have an uncontrolled systemic disease, such as thyroid disease, diabetes, some cancers, or infections, you may not be a candidate for dental implant placement at this time.
Smoking and poor oral hygiene also put your dental implant at risk for failure. In the unlikely event that a dental implant fails, Dr. Kaplansky will remove it and replace it with another implant or suggest an alternative solution like a dental bridge.
