Dental implant treatment is credited with a high rate of success, and is very popular because of its minimal side effects. Dental implants are made of titanium alloy, which is easily accepted by the body and is not associated with any kind of harmful reaction.
Successful dental implants can last for decades or even a lifetime. When implants are fixed to natural bone, the success rate is higher i.e. around 95% compared to patients who have had bone grafts, where success rate is reported as 85 or 90%. The success rate also depends on the area of the jaw where the procedure is carried out – the front part of the lower jaw has a success rate of 98%, with slightly lower rates for the other parts of the mouth.
Studies report 90 to 95% success rates for the front part of the upper jaw; the lowest success rates – 85 to 95% are for the back part of the mouth, both in the upper and lower jaw.
Endoret Plasma Rich in Growth Factors
The Drs. Cancilliere, John and Sam, use a new bone and tissue regeneration process for dental implants, that uses a patient’s own blood plasma to regenerate bone, heal a wound faster and accelerate healing. There are no risks because it is all natural – using materials from the patient’s own body.
PGRF stands for “plasma rich in growth factors.” This technology allows the use of the body’s own resources with extraordinary results in many pathologies, effectively regenerating tissues without side effects and notably reducing the recovery period of surgical interventions like dental implants. You can read about this amazing technology here.
Dental implants have a success rate of ninety-five percent and these are long lasting and fully functional in patients who follow a healthy lifestyle. Smokers and drinkers are at an increased risk of dental implant failure. Good oral hygiene is inevitable if the implants are to last for many years. The patients have to follow all the instructions provided by the dentist and take proper care of their implants. In addition, regular visits to the dentist will also ensure that the implant crowns are securely in position and fully functional.
