Dental implants are one of the most successful restorative procedures in dentistry. Studies have shown that the five-year success rate for lower jaw implants is around 95%, while upper jaw implants have a success rate of 90%. However, with proper dental care, the success rate of dental implants has increased to 98%.The success rate of upper jaw implants is lower than that of lower jaw implants due to the fact that the upper jaw is less dense. This makes osseointegration more difficult in the upper jaw.
Additionally, teeth in the front of the mouth are under less pressure than those in the back, making them less likely to cause problems with the implant. Partial dentures are an alternative option for those who have lost one or more teeth. These dentures consist of one or more replacement teeth attached to a gum-colored plastic base that attaches to the natural teeth. The main disadvantage of dental bridges is that they rest on neighboring teeth, which means those teeth have to be healthy and strong enough to support the weight. Other factors that can influence the success rate of dental implant surgery include the surgeon's experience, the type of implant used, and the patient's health. Dentists who have successfully placed numerous dental implants are more likely to successfully place the implant. Dental implants are an excellent option for people who have lost one or more teeth due to injury or illness.
They provide a solid base for removable or fixed dentures made especially to match the natural color of your teeth.
