Dental implants have a predictable success rate of approximately 98%. Our specialist periodontist is best placed to evaluate the condition of the surrounding gum and bone tissue to ensure a predictable and stable result. With 3D digital imaging, the accuracy of the treatment planning and placement is far improved; aiding the success of our dental implants.
There is a significant risk to the success of dental implants if they are placed in an environment of active periodontal disease. An infection could develop around the implant, which will lead to its failure and loss. So it is imperative to only place dental implants in a healthy environment, which we can help you to achieve as part of your tailored treatment plan.
The long-term success of implants depends on good plaque control, you will need to spend a bit more time on your oral hygiene regime once you have a dental implant. You’ll also need to attend a few follow-up appointments with your dentist, hygienist and/or periodontist so that the implant can be monitored and steps can be taken to prevent any complications at an early stage.
We are also highly unlikely to place dental implants if you smoke. Smoking affects the healing process and greatly reduces the success of dental implants. Quitting smoking will significantly increase your chances of successful implant therapy.
