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.
