Evidence from randomised controlled trials shows an increased ability to chew tough food, and increased patient satisfaction with implants in comparison to normal dentures.
There are some risk factors which can reduce the success rate of dental implants. They can be classified as Systemic and Local factors.
Systemic risk factors: Osteoporosis, Diabetes (Type I and II), Coagulation problems, Hypo/Hyper-parathyroidism, Radiotherapy, Chemotherapy, Crohn`s Disease, Medications such as Bisphosphonate, Smoking
Local risk factors: Poor plaque control and oral hygiene, Smoking, Bruxism, Active periodontal disease, Lack of primary stability of the implant after insertion, Poor access, High smile line (Aesthetic risk factor).
The complications related to dental implants are as follows:
Mucositis: Localized lesion without bone loss around an osseointegrated implant.
Peri-implantitis: Localized lesion including bone loss around an osseointegrated implant Soft tissue complications: Fistula, excessive swelling, hyperplasia, etc. Implant related complications: Fracture, Loosening of connections, Fracture of restorations over the implant or superstructure.
Factors which can increase the success rate are:
- Type, Size or Diameter, Length, Number and Location of the implants.
- Not smoking
- Good oral hygiene and plaque control
- Not being a Bruxist (Not grinding your teeth)
- Absence of peri-implantitis on review appointments (check with clinical and x-ray examinations)
More information will be given in consultation visit.
