New Study Shows Dental Implants Have 90 Percent Success Rate

New Study Shows Dental Implants Have Strong 90 Percent Success RateIf you want to replace missing teeth and correct your smile and bite, there is a fantastic solution that’s available to you that utilizes the latest and greatest advancements in dental medicine: dental implants. But how effective are dental implants, and what success rate or failure rate do they have for patients in the long term?

According to a recent study that was conducted by researchers at the Loma Linda University School of Dentistry in the US, the success rate is pretty good, to the tune of about a 90 percent success rate. However, the success rate, according to the study, also greatly wagers on the dentist who is performing the procedure and their experience.

Common causes for implant failure include: improper care of teeth by the patient, smoking, bruxism (teeth grinding) and the type of prosthesis that’s being used.

To assess the efficacy of the study, researchers used the records of patients who had received full-arch maxillary and/or mandibular supported fixed complete dentures over a period of ten years.

Success Rate of Dental Implants Wagers on Dentist Experience

According to the study, the more experienced that your dentist is, the more successful that you can expect your dental implant to be. The records generic cialis of patients who were treated with 297 implants at the school over the past decade were reviewed and compared.

  • 12 percent of implants failed when the dentists had fewer than five years experience.
  • Implants were twice as likely to fail if the dentist had completed fewer than 50 implant procedures.
  • One-third of patients with diabetes or bruxism experienced failed dental implants.
  • 90 percent of the time, overall, dental implants are successful, regardless of risk factor or practitioner experience.

Same Day Dental Implants: Get Four Dental Implants in Just One Day – Now Available at Dental Design Studio

Same Day Dental Implants | Dental Implants | Immediate Dental Implants | Instant ImplantsPreviously, dental implants were a tedious process that required multiple dental visits and checkups, surgery, often bone grafts if density wasn’t appropriate, and a lengthy healing time before the crowns (teeth) could be installed in the mouth. However, with newer procedures, dental implants can now be completed in just one day, in about two appointments (during the same day). Now you might be reading this and thinking to yourself, “Any time that I’ve asked about dental implants I was always told that the process could take as long as six months to a year for a single implant.” And such was indeed the case until recent technology and dental innovations were procured that have greatly reduced this process. We’ll shed some light on how this works and what it entails so you can see for yourself.

Overview: Same Day Dental Implants

A relatively newer and revolutionary process that involves the skills of highly experienced Oral Surgeons, Prosthodontists and Dental Implant Specialists has enabled the placing of four dental implants (top or bottom arch) in just a single visit during the same day. This procedure does not require any bone grafts (which often presented a lengthy delay for patients seeking dental implants), and provides patients with the wonderful opportunity of replacing broken or missing teeth with a minimally invasive procedure all in the same day.

How Same Day Dental Implants Work

Some patients may not be eligible based upon underlying oral health factors in combination with existing bone mass density in the jaw (however, most patients are candidates for this procedure). During your initial consultation, it will be determined if same day dental implants are right for you.

Upon deeming that you are a candidate for this procedure, we shall set up a time for you to meet with the oral surgeon that will be performing the implant placements. When meeting with your surgeon, a series of scans, x-rays and 3D imaging in combination with the usage of virtual planning software to prepare for surgical implants and the creation and fabrication of your new teeth will be conducted. At the time of your appointment, a dentist from our practice will be present during your procedure, where four dental implants (upper arch or lower arch) will be placed in your mouth to prepare the jaw for your new teeth.

Following your dental implant procedure, you will be escorted to our dental office at one of our four convenient locations to meet with a doctor. Your new teeth will be fabricated on site and prepped for placement in your mouth using the latest fabrication and 3D technology.
