If a dental implant fails to Osseo integrate, what happens?

Are dental implants covered by insurance?

If you have missing teeth, are you losing bone mass?
Without the tooth to stimulate the jaw, the bone beneath it will begin to shrink (atrophy) in the same manner that muscle underneath a cast gets smaller. Since your facial bone supports the skin and muscles on top of it, losing volume can cause your face to look prematurely aged. The good news is: Dental implants offer a solution to stop bone loss. .
