Looking for your valuable advice here...I underwent a dental implant surgery 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 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?
