Dental Implant Failures: Cause and Effect FactorsDental Implants represent the ideal in tooth replacement dentistry and are considered to be the Gold Standard of treatment. No other technology currently exists that approaches the efficiency and accuracy of an implanted tooth. Characteristics of the artificial root form structure are similar to what Mother Nature provides.
According to Sunnyvale Implant Dentist Dr. Bhawna Gupta, implants provide hard and soft tissue stimulation that preserves critical bone mass and sustains life in surrounding tissues. Implemented properly and selectively, without complication, they can provide years and years of enduring service. Implanted teeth enduring for 20 years and more are becoming quite common.
Nonetheless, implant failures do happen. Younger patients usually have a higher degree of long term implant success. Healthy jawbone structures, absence of periodontal disease and the absence of a variety of common oral health issues that may require tissue grafts aren’t as prevalent, compared to older patients.
Periodontal disease, poor soft tissue and compromised jawbone integrity become primary causes of eventual implant failures as we all age.
