There are always risks and potential complications associated with any oral surgery. Rest assured that Dr. Petrusha will check not only your oral health in preparation for the procedure, but your medical health as well. He wants to be sure you are healthy enough for the surgery and that you will heal properly as well.

The success rate for dental implants is extremely high, and complications – which are very unlikely – include infection, fracture of the dental implant or damage to nerves, blood vessels or other teeth. However, with careful planning by Dr. Petrusha and our staff, most of these issues will be avoided. The benefits of having natural-looking teeth with a stable implant as well as being able to enjoy all types of foods far exceed the risks. Dr. Petrusha will be happy to discuss any concerns you may have regarding dental implants.
