Dental Implants Problems
Dental implants have a 95 percent success rate, which means that dental implants problems are rare. However, they do sometimes occur and can lead to complications or even implant failure. Several factors can play a role in the success of dental implants, including dental health, general health, and lifestyle habits.
Of the different types of dental implants problems, failed osseointegration may be the most serious. This occurs over several weeks or months after the implant has been placed and is a result of the failure of the bone to fuse with the implant. The implant may be loose or fall out completely. This can occur as a result of inadequate bone density, dental trauma, and other internal or external factors.
Other dental implants problems tend to be less severe. Peri-implantitis is an infection that can be caused by inadequate dental hygiene, smoking, and diabetes complications. The resulting inflammation can cause the implant to fail. Treatment is possible, but in some cases, the implant may need to be removed for complete healing.
Proper planning can help reduce the risk of developing dental implants problems. We use advanced imaging systems to identify the bone size and density, locate nerves throughout the jaw and address lifestyle factors that could interfere with the success of your implants. Our goal is to ensure each patient that leaves our office has a beautiful, healthy, and lifelong smile.
