For whom and for whom not

Who can benefit from the implants?
Implants can help any patient. The determining factor is usually the health, not the age. Patients may be young adults experiencing a congenital absence of teeth or their premature loss, accident victims, dentures users or adults feeling embarrassed because of artificial teeth.
What is the success rate of the implants?
Some patients have had implants for over 30 years. The success of an implant depends on the overall health, the oral hygiene and the subsequent care that you should have both at home and at the dentist. An implant is lost for the same reasons as a natural tooth, usually because of poor hygiene.
What are the risks of the implant infection or rejection?
Implants are made of a biocompatible material, and our bodies do not consider them foreign material, so they cannot be rejected. They are made of titanium, so there is no risk of causing antigen-antibody reaction, as sometimes occurs in the case of organ transplantation.
The risk of an infection around a healed implant is the same as in the case of natural teeth. That is why it is very important to have good oral hygiene to maintain healthy tissues.
