Are Dental Implants Safe?

Are dental implants safeYes, dental implants are completely safe, especially when they’ve been installed by a highly experienced professional. Dental implants have been used safely for over 50 years in patients with good oral health and overall health. In fact, they’re the preferred method of dental restoration, and dental implant surgery is 98% effective. However, there are a few instances when your dentist may choose not to use dental implants.

Every patient is unique so it’s important to talk with your dentist and detail any medical conditions while in the planning stages of dental implants. Although dental implants have a high success rate, there are rare cases when they can fail. Those factors include:

  • Gum disease
  • Smoking
  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Diabetes that is poorly controlled
  • Insufficient jaw-bone
  • Allergic reaction
  • Infection
  • Failing to follow the dentist's instructions
To minimize the likelihood of dental implant failure, you should follow your dentist’s instructions and properly take care of your oral health and overall health.
