Is there a risk of dental implant rejection?

What are the risks of dental implant rejection?

Sam P.- Ontario

Sam,

When people think about rejection, they are typically thinking of organ rejection. In those cases, your body can reject the organ completely. Before the surgery you’ll have to have tests for tissue matching and blood typing.  You don’t need anything like that when it comes to dental implants. Your body will almost always accept the implant.  You just have to be in general good health for the surgery.

There is such a think as dental implant failure, however. Sometimes it is because there is not enough bone. Sometimes because the dentist didn’t have enough experience with a procedure that takes significant post-graduate training. Other times, we have no idea why it fails.  Some believe smoking puts you at greater risk for failure.
