Implants have a 95% success rate, and they typically last a lifetime. However, in some cases, problems can still arise. Complications are most likely to occur if you receive implants from a less experienced practitioner. Some implants will loosen or fail to fuse properly with the bone, while others will result in infection or nerve damage. Dr. Gowey can correct a wide range of implant difficulties.
