VIDEO: What Factors Impact Your Dental Implant Success?

Glendale Dentist Serving Phoenix, Scottsdale, Peoria, and nearby areas in Arizona

At Desert Smiles in Glendale, we like this video featuring Dr. Donald Wilcox speaking about dental implants because of the wealth of information that our cosmetic dentist manages to pack into a relatively short segment.

By-and-large, dental implants are the most effective solution that dentists in the Phoenix area and nationwide have for cracked or missing teeth. Phoenix implant dentist Dr. Wilcox explains here that implants have roughly a 95 percent success rate.

But that's not to say that dental implants are right for every damaged smile. Here are four factors that may impact the success of a patient's dental implant placement:

  • Inadequate bone density
  • Particular medications
  • Diabetes
  • Heavy smoking
