Long-term Success and Prognosis
Long-term dental implants success and prognosis often depends on successful management of a variety of dental implants risk factors (e.g. uncontrolled diabetes, history of periodontal disease, bruxism, occlusal trauma etc)
According to Americal Dental Association many failures and complications occur when using implants to support restorations. Most failures can be prevented with proper treatment planning.
Dental Implant failures can be largely classified into four main categories:
Failure of the Implant Post to Fully Integrate
For implant treatment to be successful, the implant post that is inserted into the jawbone must fully integrate with the surrounding bone. It’s necessary for new bone cells to grow on and around the post which will help to stabilize it, ensuring it is held firmly in place. This process, called osseointegration can take several months to complete.
Dental implant posts are often specially treated to encourage this process, but like everything, there is always a chance that the implant post could fail to fully integrate, leaving it unable to properly support a replacement tooth and ultimately increasing the risk of failure.
