With a 98% Success Rate, What Causes Some Dental Implants to Fail While Others Don’t?
Bone loss is a common concern in patients with missing teeth, because without teeth, the supporting bone does not receive the necessary stimulation it once did.

Mario Canal and Ben Calem can perform a sinus lift to restore the bone levels in preparation for dental implants.
