Statistically, today’s dental implants have over a 95 percent success rate. Contemporary dental implants are sophisticated and dependable. The surface of the metal implant is often roughened by blasting or etching to increase the surface area for the bone to fuse with, thereby increasing the likelihood of the osseointegration of the implant.
To have successful dental implants you need to have sufficient bone structure, have good dental health and be in generally good health.
For the process of osseointegration to be successful the dental implant should be surrounded by healthy tissue and bone. If a patient does not have sufficient healthy tissue and bone to support the implant, often the dentist can reconstruct it.
The care of implants is similar to that of natural teeth. Brushing and flossing are still just as important, as are regular checkups with the Phoenix AZ dentist. Proper oral care will increase the likelihood of successful implant therapy and leave you with a beautiful smile.
