Smoking With Dental Implants
What Are The Negative Effects Of Smoking With Dental Implants
Is Smoking With Dental Implants Bad For Your Health? Watch this educational video by our experienced Buffalo implant dentist, Zachary Teach DDS to find out.
Patients come in, they need an implant to replace a tooth that’s lost or for whatever reason, they need a new dental implant. They want to know, “Doctor, I smoke. Are implants going to work for me?” The first thing I like to tell them is it’s the number one risk factor for failing implants or why implants fail. I like to address and educate the patient on the importance of quitting smoking and what that’s going to do for not only their systemic health, but their oral health in general.
