Frequently asked questions
Can it happen that the body rejects a dental implant, if so, how frequently does such a thing occur?
After an implant is inserted in the jaw bone, it can happen that it does not integrate with the bone like it should. This occurs in only 3% of the cases. However, this does not pose an irresolvable problem; if this is the case, the implant is taken out and replaced with a larger implant.
Are there any specific conditions that do not permit to undergo implant surgery?

How can I overcome my uncontrollable fear of the dentist?
