What if the Implant “Doesn't Take?”
Dental implants in their modern form have been used since the early 80's. In the last 30 years, they have evolved into a very predictable and successful treatment option for patients with missing teeth. Statistically, the success rate of implants has been 97-99%.
Reasons a Dental Implant Won't Work
Factors such as uncontrolled systemic diseases (diabetes, thyroid diseases, some cancers, etc.), infections, smoking and poor oral hygiene all contribute to implant failure. In an extremely rare event when a dental implant fails, Dr. Kaplansky will remove it and either replace with another implant or suggest an alternative solution.
