The dental implant is the modern definitive solution for different types of partial or total edentulism, for the replacement of one or more teeth. The potential risks associated with implant treatments are evaluated by the implantologist, who informs the patient about appropriate practices for looking after the implant. Proper oral hygiene and regular checks by one’s dentist are essential for ensuring a successful implant treatment. There are no age limits for implant treatments, even very elderly patients can receive implant therapy; any limiting risk factors that the patient may have will be evaluated by the dentist. The risks of losing an implant are relatively limited and, because of its particular biocompatibility, titanium offers important guarantees from the point of view of osseointegration (insertion of the implant in the bone). The success rate (survival rate) of dental implants is now very high; FMD implants have achieved high reliability, confirmed by major scientific studies (see: scientific publications) that demonstrate a success rate for FMD implants of 99.23{375dc2bd9fc503914ce27bdf34d1c688f65b881a5966508a75c0ad0f0009efc3} on a 15 year follow-up.
