While the dental implant process is a very safe and regular procedure, there are some risks associated as with any surgery. The risks are often very minor and easily treated. One risk is infection at the implant site. The day of your procedure, Dr. Erakat will discuss how to try to prevent this and ways to spot if an infection is forming. Another risk is injury to surrounding structures such as other teeth or blood vessels. If your dental implants are being placed in the upper molar region there is a chance that an issue could result in the sinus area. This is rare and with today’s technology our surgeon knows the exact measurements of the bone to eliminate this issue from happening.
Again, these risks are very minor and easily treated. To discuss these risks of getting dental implants call or email Dr. Mohammed Erakat. 732-297-7000
