My Dentist Has Said My Implants Have Failed Because I Smoke. Could This Really Be True?

Tuesday, February 4th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. I recently had 2 implants fail (upper molars) after 2 years. My dentist said this is because I smoke, is that really likely to be the cause after 2 years? I thought the main risk was in the early stages? I avoided smoking (practically) during the first 6 months. I am 46 and otherwise healthy. I would appreciate any advice on this. My dentist didn’t offer any failure plan at the time, so I will need to pay to have these done again! Thanks.

Is It Possible To Have Dental Implants After Valve Surgery?

Monday, February 3rd, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark

I would like to  know if after undergoing surgery for an Aiortic valve replacement in 2007,  Would it be possible to have tooth implants fitted? ( it would perhaps be six implants altogether in all )
I am currently taking warfarin to keep my blood thin due to a mechanical valve being fitted.

Please let me know if these implants would be possible, and if not what would you say is the best solution to my problems?

Kind regards in advance for any advice you may have on this matter.
