We have noticed that our clients often inquire about certain concerns, so we’ve compiled this list of responses to frequently asked questions. Please feel free to contact us if you have any concerns that we haven’t covered here.
What is the success rate of dental implant treatment?
Patients who maintain healthy hygiene habits and follow their aftercare instructions can expect a success rate of 95 to 98 percent. However, every patient is unique and your results could vary.
How long will my dental implants last?
Dental implants are immune from tooth decay and they are strong enough to last a lifetime. You will still need to be vigilant in the fight against gum disease and other conditions that could damage your smile. However, dental implants can last indefinitely if they are properly cared for and maintained.
Can dentures be made into implants?
It isn’t possible to convert dentures into dental implants because a denture does not have a titanium fixture that can bond with your jawbone through osseointegration. However, it may be possible to replace your current dentures with implant-supported overdentures. This solution provides the durability of dental implants with the restoration ability of dentures.
How long will the dental implant process take?
The dental implant process takes from 3 to 6 months on average. This time frame might be extended if Dr. Chow determines that you require additional procedures to prepare the surgical site for dental implants.
