Are Dental Implants Safe?

In this video, Dr. John Coolican, an experienced Wilkes-Barre implant dentist, explains the minimal risk involved when considering restoring your smile with dental implants.

While the implant procedure is indeed deemed to be safe, having implants placed is a surgical procedure. As with any surgical procedure, there are risks involved. While the possibility of infection or rejection is real, the percentage of patients who end up having problems after implant surgery is quite small. Dental implants are the current best option for tooth replacement. A dental implant can replace a single tooth or act as an anchor for a bridge or dentures. There are many benefits of dental implants, including their longevity. Implants are the longest lasting replacement option available.
