Are Dental Implants Safe In The Long Run?

Dental implants in Rosemont Dental Center are the safest and most effective way to restore your beautiful smile. You might be wondering if dental implant surgery is really safe since it involves surgery. Are there any serious complications after dental implant surgery? Read on to clear all your anxieties and worries regarding dental implants.


Are dental implants safe? Yes! Dental implants have been successfully used in dentistry for almost 30 years now and are considered to be safe and trustworthy.

Patients who are in good health can expect no risks or complications after dental implant surgery. It is essential to make sure that you are in good health before considering a dental implant procedure, though. For instance, if you are suffering from periodontal disease, you cannot get dental implant surgery unless your gums get proper treatment.

A study was conducted to find that 90 to 95% of all dental implant surgeries are in perfect condition even after 10 years of their dental implant surgery. Other studies show that the success rate of dental implant surgeries is between 95 and 98% for a period of 40 to 50 years.


Complications in dental implant surgery are very rare, especially when done by experts. However, some complications arise in some rare circumstances that you should know about:

The most common complication is peri-implantitis which is an infection of the gum tissue in the area of the implant. This happens due to the improper cleaning of the site during the surgery. Or it can also be due to the improper cleaning done by the patient after surgery.

Working with an experienced and professional dental surgeon helps to avoid peri-implantitis. Ensure that you clean the area properly after the surgery.

In some rare cases, the implant fails to attach itself to the bone. This is mostly seen in patients with a weak jawbone. Such complications can be avoided with proper planning before the implant surgery, like bone grafting to strengthen the weakened bone.

The rarest of the rare complication that could happen is implant rejection. It is also called foreign body rejection. This happens when your immune system is allergic to the implant fused into your jawbone.
