Default Smoking and dental implants

Looking for your valuable advice here...I underwent a dental implant surgery from a dental clinic ( 2 years back. Everything is fine now and, there are no negative effects of it until now. But the problem is I read a blog of a dental clinic in Burlington which says that " Smoking Lead to Dental Implant Failure". Is it true? I'm a heavy smoker and now I'm really worried about it. Can a failed dental implant be replaced?

Hi, Merina, and welcome!

I'm no expert, but I've never heard of that happening.

Iíve had implants for almost 10 years and have had only one fail for a reason totally unrelated to smoking. I was told by the oral surgeon that it was poorly placed which led to the failure. It was replaced without additional charge. Implants do require care just as your natural teeth would but are generally trouble free. I highly recommend them.
