Dental implants are one of the safest and most effective procedures in modern dentistry. With a 15-year success rate of greater than 95 percent, most patients can be confident of a healthy, happy smile for many years to come. Our expert in implant in Los Angeles can help you decide if implants are the best choice for your smile.
As with any surgery, the dental implants procedure can have some risks. These can include infection at the implant site, nerve damage, sinus problems and injury or damage to nearby structures, such as teeth or blood vessels. These are rare, however, and when they do occur, they tend to be minor and easily treated.
If you are a candidate for dental implants, their safety can be improved with good planning and aftercare. During the planning stage, our dentist will take detailed X-rays and images for precise placement. After the procedure, we will provide you with aftercare instructions to help you take care of the treatment site and promote healing. Most people will heal without complications or problems, and once the bone has fused with the implant, the implant procedure can be completed with the addition of a restoration.
