Placement of dental implants is done during a surgical procedure. Dental surgery carries certain general risks including infection of the bone, tingling caused by damage to nerve tissue which may be temporary or long term, and excessive bleeding during or after the surgery. Dental implants are not intended to be used in all patients. After placement, dental implants may fail to integrate with the bone. If this occurs, they will need to be removed in a secondary procedure. Consult your dentist to find out if dental implants are right for you.
