    Research has shown that dental implants are quite safe. It is possible to get an infection, similar to gum disease, around them if they aren't kept clean, but implants are probably less likely to become infected than a tooth. They are made of titanium, which is very compatible with your body. Other than the visits required to place the implant and the crown on top of it, once the implant is in place, you don't need to see the dentist any more frequently.
