3d rendering of a dental implantThe gold standard for replacing missing teeth is dental implants. Patients who receive dental implants will benefit for years to come from being able to speak correctly, smile with confidence, and maintain a normal diet. There are dangers associated with dental implant treatment, even if the newest methods and technologies allow for perfect implant placement. Before undergoing dental implant treatment, read below to learn more about the risks involved.

Overview of the Risks

Dental implant surgery has dangers and consequences, just like any other medical operation; however, these are infrequent and usually controllable when they do arise. The main risks associated with dental implant surgeries are infections at the implant site, harm or injury to the oral tissues surrounding the implant, nerve damage, sinus issues, and implant failure.


Improper post-operative care or weakened immunity may cause infection. To reduce this risk, patients should carefully follow the guidelines provided after the dental implant insertion procedure. Although unanticipated difficulties might still arise, damage to neighboring tooth tissues is reduced during dental implant placement through careful planning and modern imaging techniques and technology.

Damage to Nerves

Damage to the nerves may result in a temporary or permanent alteration in sensation in the gums, lips, tongue, and chin region. The expertise and accuracy of the dental practice in placing dental implants are essential to minimize this danger. Preoperative assessment prevents sinus-related problems during upper jaw dental implant placements.

Dental Implant Failure

The body rejecting the dental implant material is one possibility for dental implant failure, but this is relatively uncommon with the advancement of biocompatible materials. More often than not, inadequate osseointegration - the inability of the dental implant post to effectively fuse with the jawbone - can result in dental implant failure. Several factors, such as low bone density, incorrect placement, or too much stress on the dental implant before it fully heals, can lead to inappropriate osseointegration.
