Can Your Dental Implants Fail?

Posted on 2/7/2022 by Dr. Bembey and Dr. Yokoyama
Can Your Dental Implants Fail?If you are scheduled to receive dental implants, you may wonder how the implantation process works or how the results may look like. Dental implants are fitted in the jawbone and covered with a crown or tooth cap to help replace missing teeth. Before getting the implants, a dentist assesses the health of your jaw, gums, and mouth to ensure you are a candidate for the restorations because this can affect the implants' longevity.

Can Implants Fail?

Yes, there is a likelihood of the implants failing. Although they function like real teeth, you should care for them properly as the dentist instructs you. Dental implants are an investment meant to last long if good care is ensured. Therefore, you need to clean your mouth regularly and avoid harsh, hard, acidic, or sticky foods. Ensure you keep up with routine dental appointments to ensure things are going on smoothly. If you smoke, quit the habit. Smoking reduces the flow of blood to the implantation site, which slows the post-op healing.

Besides, you need to exercise proper oral hygiene like flossing, brushing, and changing your toothbrush often. It will help prevent the development of gum disease, which is a major culprit for implant failure.

Make sure you choose a dentist who understands your needs and is experienced in this restorative process. The dentist should thoroughly inspect your mouth before placing the implant in order to ensure the longevity of the restorations. When you work with the right dental specialist like a periodontist, you are able to increase the success rate of implants. You also get the proper advice on how to care for the restorations. This way, you minimize any chances of implant failure. Contact us if you need dental implants. Our team will examine you to see that you are fit for the restoration.

This Doctor is a true healer!

Dr. Bembey is truly a healer. Not one of those Doctors who is in it for the money. You can tell that she loves her job. She actually made it enjoyable, and I don’t normally think of gum surgery as something to enjoy. She is very knowledgeable, and her skills are awesome! She communicates well and tells you small details that really help a lot. And she is there for you if you need her. Most importantly, she saved me from loosing my teeth! This Doctor is a GEM!!! I highly recommend her.
