What is the success rate of Dental Implants?
Success rates of dental implants vary, depending on various conditions, in general dental implants have a success rate of up to 98%. With proper care, implants can last a lifetime.
Who is a good candidate for dental implant?
A patient with a healthy gum & enough bone & also one who is committed to good oral hygiene is considered a good candidate for dental implant. Heavy smokers, people suffering from uncontrolled chronic disorders — such as diabetes or heart disease — or patients who have had radiation therapy to the head/neck area need to be evaluated on an individual basis. If you are considering implants, our dentist will ask you for certain investigations that will help them decide whether they are right for you.
