Individuals who are struggling with missing teeth are often going to find themselves uncomfortable and unhappy during the countless social interactions every single day. Alternatively, when an individual is happy with their smile, they are going to be proud of their appearance and revitalize their confidence. This is why the most trusted Los Angeles dental implants dentist, Dr. Kevin Sands, is now warning locals of startling links between smoking and dental implant failure that may lower their chances at restoring the appearance and function of their smile.

According to the Journal of Periodontology's abstract on the Tobacco as a Risk Factor for Survival of Dental Implants, those that smoke frequently are at a dramatically higher rate of having their dental implant surgery result in failure. Healthy, non-smokers enjoy a success rate as high as 98.6 percent for full osseointegration while smokers have a failure rate as high as 15.8 percent. This is a devastating set of facts for those that are looking to single or multiple dental implants in order to get their appearance back in order.
