Aim: The purpose of this retrospective study is to assess implant success rates with various risk factors. Materials and methods: Two hundred patients with a total of 650 implants were selected. Risk factors, such as smoking, antidepressants, bruxism, diabetes, and bone augmentation procedures were considered, and patients were followed up for a period of 8 to 15 years. Results: Of 650 implants placed, the success rate was 88%, i.e., a total of 572 implants were successful. A total of 78 implants were considered failure; and out of 78, twenty implants were surgically removed. Conclusion: Based on this study’s results, it is concluded that risk factors, such as smoking, bruxism, diabetes, and bone augmentation play an important role in success rate of dental implants. Clinical significance: Several factors, such as bruxism, diabetes, and supporting bone can play an important role in dental implant success.
