Success Rates of Dental Implants
Dental implants may fail for a number of reasons including:
- Implant Positioning. If the placement of the implant is not ideal, the osseointegration process may not occur properly.
- Breakage. Implants can sometimes fracture or break.
- Infection. An infection or an inflammatory condition in the gum or bone.
- Smoking. Smoking decreases the healing ability of the body and blood flow necessary for proper healing.
- Poor Oral Hygiene. Poor hygiene can lead to the development of peri-implantitis around dental implants, which is similar to how gum disease forms around the natural tooth.
While some of these factors are the responsibility of the patient (i.e. smoking and poor oral hygiene), the experience of the oral surgeon doing the implants will play the biggest role in the success rates. It’s imperative to find a highly qualified oral surgeon when considering dental implants.
Dr. Knox was professional, compassionate, and skilled. His assistant talked me through everything. I had a wisdom tooth removed and a cavity filled. I have made plans to have a dental implant with Dr. Knox as well. They are very fairly priced.
The staff is very friendly and my dentist is kind and patient man. Dr Bohle worked on my implant and the experience was pleasant. He was very informative and was talked me through everything that would go on. If you need dental work done I could not recommend a better place.
There are certain things in life that you don't like, but you have to do it anyway. Like eat liver when your mom serves it, like go to work every morning, and go to the dentist twice a year for a checkup. If you do, your teeth will last you a lifetime. But if you don't, you'll end up with Dentures or implants. Natural teeth are a lot cheaper. Give this place a chance I think you'll be happy with results.
