Dental implants carry a 98 percent success rate and rarely need to be replaced.

Factors like improper placement, excess dental cement, an uneven bite and poor oral hygiene can lead to failing dental implants among Cape Coral, FL, patients. The most common cause of failing dental implants, however, is peri-implantitis. Similar to gum disease, peri-implantitis is an infection of the gums and bone surrounding a dental implant.
