The #1 Reason Why a Dental Implant May Fail

Dental implants by Dr. Thein are highly successful – as he has thoroughly studied his trade and continues to do so every year. He even teaches other dentists on the latest techniques.

However, there is always a marginal chance of dental implant failure. Though very rare, most cases are caused by having a mouth that does not contain sufficient bone density to support the implant, leading to its failure. Dr. Thein will not perform a dental implant if he believes your mouth is not fit for one, which is why his success rate remains so high.

Fortunately, this problem can be solved with the implementation of bone grafting, offered by Dr. Thein in preparation for a successful dental implant. If your mouth is unfit for the procedure, then Dr. Thein will utilize the necessary steps in preparing your teeth and gums for dental implant placement.

Suffer from Facial Collapse? You’re a Great Dental Implant Candidate.

After having teeth extracted, your body begins to resorb the bone that is used to hold those teeth in. This shrinkage process begins right after the extractions and continues on for years. When people have had all their teeth extracted, the general shrinkage that occurs is very serious and will result, after a number of years, in not being able to hold a removable denture. This is a phenomenon that is called facial collapse. Visit our facial collapse page for more details.
