Smoking and Implants

It is a fact that smoking has many negative effects on oral health. The discoloration of teeth , the characteristic bad breath , and inflammation of the gums , are only a few.

Regarding the placement of implants, which is actually a form of surgery, smoking can cause delayed wound healing, while facilitating transfection.

Furthermore, recent studies have shown that smokers have a slightly lower osseointegration success rates compared to non-smokers.

Our doctors would advise you, at least during the implant treatment, to reduce or completely quit smoking, so that the restoration can be completed in the smoothest possible way.
