Is the Success Rate of an Implant Related to the State of the Surrounding Teeth?

Hey. I’m just wondering, is the success rate of a dental implant in any way related to the teeth surrounding it? I have a missing tooth, and the two teeth beside is are not in the best condition, though I don’t want to get rid of them. Will keeping them in place affect how successful the dental implant would be? Thanks. 
Thanks for getting in touch. It depends on the condition of the teeth. If they are decayed, loose or infected, it’s probably worth including them in the implant treatment. I know you say you don’t want to remove them but your dentist might suggest you have the 3 removed and replaced with 2 implants and a bridge. However, if the teeth are fine, just not perfect, then no – your treatment should not be affected. Hope this helps.
