While studies have shown long term implant success rates to exceed 95%, there are certain situations where a patient might not be a good candidate, or the success rate might be low. For example, patients with poor general physical health may not be good candidates for dental implants. In addition, bone quality, quantity and stability are of primary concern when placing an implant. Regardless of other contributing factors, implants must be maintained. Without proper care and routine maintenance, dental implants are susceptible to degradation, and potential failure.
