Some Risks Associated with Dental Implants

Some Risks Associated with Dental ImplantsDental implants use a titanium root form implanted in the jawbone to support a prosthetic tooth for a natural looking and feeling restoration. Our dentist in Beverly Hills can use dental implants to replace just one tooth or an entire mouthful of teeth. The success rate is 98 percent, and they are considered a lifelong restoration with few associated risks or complications.

Although they are extremely safe and well-tolerated, not everyone is a good candidate for the procedure. Our dentist will discuss your medical and dental history with you in order to ensure you are an appropriate candidate before we perform the procedure.

Smokers are the most likely group to suffer complications. They may experience poor healing, the implant may fail to fuse or bone tissue could deteriorate. If you smoke and are interested in dental implants, you may need to quit smoking for a few days prior to surgery and during the healing process in order to ensure a more successful procedure.

Because dental implants require minor oral surgery, there can also be risks similar to those associated with any surgical procedure. There could be nerve damage, infection or damage to surrounding tissues. These risks are low, but complying with our dentist’s post-operative instructions is recommended. After the procedure, you may experience pain, tenderness and swelling. These symptoms are rarely serious or life threatening, and will dissipate over time.
