What are the risks of a dental implant?

Dental implants are both safe and effective and enjoy a high success rate. The vast majority of patients are happy with the results.

But, like any dental procedure, there are a few risks although these tend to be rare.

Risks/side effects include:

  • Implant failure
  • Infection
  • Inflammation
  • Fractured or broken implants
  • Poor positioning
  • Overloading (too much force)
  • Damaged sinus tissue

If you notice any of these problems then contact your dentist immediately.
