It might be difficult having an implant fitted for an individual with a pre-existent condition like advanced gum disease. Smokers might also find it difficult to have implants fitted in. these situations reduce the success rates of the procedure significantly. Not all cases are the same though, and a thorough evaluation is needed before making a decision.
Healthy teeth are a gift that many people take for granted. After years of poor dental hygiene, many people find themselves cornered with the issue of poor dental health, having to lose a tooth or teeth. Dental implants are technology’s way of giving people a second chance, giving tooth replacement that feels as close to one’s own as possible, and last almost as long as the original would.
The history of implants started in the fifties when scientists noticed that titanium and some elements formed a strong bond with the bone. Today, there are patients that have had implants for more than 25 years and are still going strong.
