Improving The Chances Of Your Dental Implant’s Success

Dental implants have long been regarded as the very best method for permanently replacing lost or missing teeth. Part of the reason is because they typically come with a very high success rate – studies have shown long-term success rates of well over 90%!

However, even with overwhelmingly positive success rates, there are still some factors that can compromise your implants. We’ve divided these factors into three categories: local factors, general health concerns, and maintenance issues.

  • Local factors: The quantity and quality of your bone is just one of the examples of a local factor that can impact the success of your dental implants. We want to make sure you have sufficient bone in the correct places in order to accurately secure the implants.
  • General health concerns: Your lifestyle, general health, and habits can play a huge part in the success of dental implants. We want to make sure you have these factors stabilized and under control in order to achieve the highest success rate for your dental implants. Some examples of general health concerns include diabetes, smoking, compromised immune system, and osteoporosis.
  • Maintenance issues: Dental implants, much like any other dental appliance, will require routine maintenance. This includes daily cleaning on your part and continued professional care on the part of your dentist. Otherwise, your implants are vulnerable to break down.

To learn more about dental implants, and how you can take the best care of them, please contact Coastal Periodontics, located in Portsmouth, NH to schedule an appointment with Dr. Kate Wilson.
