Dental Implants Are Not Permanent! MUST WATCH
Wow… This is a lot to digest but worth watching for a few minutes. About 35% of my practice is devoted to redo’s/revisions of failing implants, bone grafts and implant crowns/bridges.
Having extra bone and gum is by far the best anatomical way to prevent problems with the surgical portion of the implants but this is one part only. In this video I review everything from implant design, implant screws, and gum grafting/recession, bone grafting failure of full arch all on 4, zygomatic implants failure, effect of smoking, diabetes, osteoporosis, peri-implantitis, and many many more.
By far the most important thing is to have your dental implants done right the first time. The training, skill, judgment and experience of your dental implant dentist along with their laboratory is going to determine long-term success or short-term misery.
This video is not intended to scare anyone off as dental implants are very successful but I see an increasing rate of complications over the last 20 years.
Please keep in mind that breast implants and hip/knee implants are not permanent either.
