About Dental Implants Success/Failure Rate. What is the risk of Rejection of an Implant?
Dental Implants have a success rate of more than 95%. It is very rare for an implant to be rejected. To reduce the risk of their rejection, don’t smoke. Let the it heal completely (3-6 months) before loading it with a crown, avoid eating hard substances during healing period. Avoid chewing on that side till it is completely healed. This helps the implant to heal with out undue pressure from you. In a nutshell this will determine to a large extent your teeth implants success rate.
Is Extracting A Failed Dental Implant Same As Extracting Tooth?
Absolutely not. Ligaments in the jaw bone hold teeth allowing for their movement and elevation during an extraction. The ligaments will break as the tooth is pulled and the tooth can be taken out. Teeth implants on the other hand are completely different matter. If the implant is partially attached to bone, it has no ligament around it and is thus firmly fused to the bone. If it is attached it needs to be cut out with a drill or a piezo-electric hand piece. If however the implant is loose and wobbly and not attached to the bone at all, it can usually be removed very simply by twisting it out. Both can be painful and will need to be done under anesthesia.
Do you need to worry?
Only a small proportion of people face rejection due their medical history like auto immune diseases or reaction to metal inserts. Most people have had no such problems. But, you need to be careful during the healing period to improve your chances of success considerably.
Better Design Better Success
The new 3i teeth implant shape and design promotes head start for bone integration. It has been designed with a domed shape apex which prevents any potential damage to nerves or surrounding tissue. The tapered design helps it to be placed in limited spaces even when the site location has roots of adjacent tooth and the thread angles promote better anchoring with the bone. This improves in primary stability and accurate placement of the tooth. This makes it a good choice for both dental surgeons and patients for the long term success of dental implants.
