What Are the Risks of Dental Implants?

Dental implants, which have been used for decades, are proven safe and effective.  Dental implant surgery is one of the most predictable procedures in dentistry.


Complications from dental implant surgery are rare but, as with any medical procedure, there are risks, and these risks may be higher for patients who smoke or have other medical conditions. Risks include: infection, which generally responds to medication; damage to other teeth, tooth roots, sinus problems; fractures; nerve damage that can result in pain, numbness or tingling; inability to complete the procedure due to inadequate jawbone; and implant failure.


Dr. Aptekar will talk to you before any procedure to discuss your health history and habits and to fully understand the risks involved.
