In brief: Very successful

Dental Implants are the only proven way to prevent bone loss after the loss of natural teeth or gum disease.

In brief: Less than normal

Demineralization of enamel and dentin occurs from the accumulation of acid, either from bacterial concentration under plaque or chronically acidic saliva.
In a few individuals stomach reflux of acid or ingesting acidic fluids can add to the problem. All tissues of the mouth prefer an alkaline environment, so keep them that way through your diet and reduction of bacterial plaque on a daily basis.

In brief: Where ?

Not sure where or what you are referring to re: demineralization.
Dental implants are exceptionally successful in both the upper and lower jaws. If the bone is sufficient in volume , density and location, the likelihood of success is very high - in the hands of well-trained specialists. The restoration must also be excellently designed,fabricated and maintained. Jaws not affected like long bones.

In brief: Might be ok

I'm not sure what if you meant demineralization of the existing teeth or maybe osteoporosis? If you meant dimineralization of the teeth, this has little bearing on dental implants.
However if you meant osteorosis and density of the bone is diminishing, then the bone in the implant sight may need to be evaluated more closely. Your dentist should be able to give you more info on this.

In brief: Very!

Demineralization with occur on your natural teeth, not on your dental implants.
Demineralization is the ongoing occurrence int he mouth when the acids from our foods, drinks and the bacteria in our mouths slowly destroy the mineralized structure of the teeth. Fight this by reducing the amount of acidic foods and drinks, good oral hygiene, chewing xylitol, and using a remineralizing toothpaste.
