A patient in my Burbank office asked me about the long-term with implants. Dental implant complications can occur. Most focus on the surgery, but what I am talking about is what happens later down the road. Later, meaning after the crown, bridge or full implant restoration has been attached to the implants.
This video reviews two problems that can occur with a dental implant months or years down the road.
Keep in mind that "regular dentistry" has complications too. Fillings break, crowns wear out, root canals become lose their seal, etc…unfortunately nothing is forever. But with good upkeep and regular visits, potential problems can be taken care of more easily than waiting. The skill and training of your dentist plays a huge role. Dont choose your dentist by price alone.
