Dental implant is the best answer to losing a tooth. There are two ways dental implants can be done – endosteal and subperiosteal. As the name suggests, the former has the screws and metal posts in the bone, while the latter has it on the bone. Between the two, however, it is the endosteal dental implant that is considered to be the more common one.
Successes and Failures
Generally, dental implant procedures enjoy a 95% success rate. There are, however, a number of reasons why a dental implant could fail. These could include incorrect positioning of the implant which, in turn, could be caused by a cosmetic dentist not having extensive knowledge with the procedure.
