Dental Implant Problems
Experienced Buffalo Dentist Explains Dental Implant Problems & Common Causes of Failure
Despite having a 95% success rate, dental implant problems can occur if not properly cared for. Watch this educational video by Zachary Teach, one of our Buffalo oral surgeons to learn more.
The number one risk factor that prevents dental implants from working or being successful is smoking. We will still place implants in the mouths of patients who smoke, but we endeavor to convince these patients from ceasing to smoke. Our office likes to educate patients about the importance of quitting smoking and how this will affect their systemic health and their oral health in general. There are other elements that can complicate success of implants, and they can be discussed at future appointments with your dentist.
