Failed Dental Implant Treatment In Plano TX
Dental Implants Time and Rate of Failure
Rate of Failure
The rate at which dental implants fail is about 5% — a small number, but when you consider how many people get implants, you realize a lot of people suffer from this. And the rate of failure can be due to many things.
Time of Failure
3 to 4 Months
Early failure of dental implants usually happens within three to four months after the procedure during the process of the implant integrating with the jaw bone. Auto-immune disorders, allergic reactions, infections, and medications are just a few reasons dental implants fail.
1 to 10 Years
If a dental implant fails anywhere from one to 10 years after the procedure, this is considered a late/long-term failure. There are several factors that can contribute to a late dental implant failure including: under-engineered procedures, smoking, lack of gum tissue, and teeth grinding. Infections, lack of bone, and head and neck radiation can also cause your dental implants to fail.
You may feel worried that your implant will fail, but remember, about 95% of implants are successful, so failure is actually a rare occurrence. And with our Start Smiling Dental Implant Center guarantee, we're 100% confident you'll leave with your ultimate smile.
