Are implants always successful?

Modern implant techniques have been in use since 1965. Improvements in procedures and materials have given implants a very high success rate, which is now over 95%.   Implants are an accepted treatment by the American Dental Association.

Is everyone a candidate for implant treatment?

In general, anyone healthy enough to undergo routine tooth extraction or oral surgery is able to receive an implant. If there is insufficient bone, there are techniques to graft additional bone.

Will others know I have dental implants?

Today’s implant treatment enables you to have your new teeth look, feel and function like your own. Even though others will be unaware you have dental implants, many patients are so pleased that they tell everyone they know. Dental implants offer some of the finest restorative results possible in modern dentistry.

How long does complete treatment take?

Depending on the type of implant and replacement teeth selected, the total time can be as little as a few weeks to several months. Sometimes if a tooth has to be extracted, the implant can be placed at the same time. If adding bone for the implant is necessary, further time may be needed. 

Stay tuned next month where I will answer more questions about dental implants and crowns. ?
