Are you hesitant to try getting a dental implant for fear of failure? It’s true that not all dental implant surgeries are successful, but that is true of any surgical procedure. The success rates of dental implants vary, depending upon where the implants are placed in the jaw. Generally, though, dental implants have a success rate of as much as 98 per cent! In most instances, those who are healthy enough to go through dental extraction or oral surgery are able to qualify for a dental implant. Patients should have gums that are healthy enough to hold the implant in place if they have the surgery. Of course, if they do go through with the surgery they should be committed to taking care of their teeth and gums so as not to lose anymore teeth. There are risks of getting a procedure done but there are also benefits from having the procedure done. As mentioned above, dental implants, once implanted successfully, have a success rate of up to 98 percent. And with proper care, your implants can last the rest of your life. That means that there will be no more worry about dentures, bridges, or gaps in teeth. For many people, the risks of the surgery are worth the rewards that occur with a successful surgery.
