I treat about two hundred patients a year with dental implants. Most of them have very good things to say about the results of their treatment. Many of them say that the implants have saved their lives and they can now go about more confidently in their day to day routines. Here's what one patient has to say...

About once a month, however, I do see a patient or two who has had nothing but problems with their implants. They did not get what they were promised and they are now very disappointed with the results.

About once a week, I get a story on my web site about very disappointing experiences with dental implants and it usually traces down to treatment from dentists who are not experienced in dental implant techniques. There have been studies in the dental literature that show that experience is extremely important to the implant outcome.

Before you get an implant, ask around and speak to as many patients as you can about the success of their implant treatment. Don't be embarrassed.... A little information can go a long way towards saving you a great deal of trouble. Check out some letters from implant patients to get more of a feel about what goes on with this modality of dental treatment...
