Understanding the Factors that Can Influence Implant Success

Replacing a missing tooth with an implant has numerous advantages over other treatment options. However, even with a success rate of well over 95%, there are numerous factors that can influence your personal success rate. For example, patients who are non-smokers and in general good health tend to have fewer issues and better healing than patients who smoke. Your medical history is also a factor; patients who have diabetes, osteoporosis, or have compromised immune (resistance) systems are at greater risk of complications with healing or even of being unable to have dental implants.
