Dental Implant Complications

Dental Implant Complications

Let's Restore Your Smile

Ideally once a dental implant is placed, you should not have to worry about anything other than taking good care of your implants through careful oral hygiene and regular visits to your dentist.

However, even though dental implants are designed to last a lifetime, dental implant complications can and do occur.

Factors That can Cause Your Implant to Fail

A Poorly Placed Implant: Not all dental implants are successful, resulting in the need to either re-seat the original implant or replace the implant.

Lack of Good Oral Hygiene: Without a good oral hygiene regimen, your dental implants can deteriorate just the same as your regular teeth can. Oral hygiene is key to keeping your implants in optimum condition.

Trauma to the Mouth and Jaw Area: Any type of trauma to the facial area, especially the jaw, can cause your dental implants to become damaged, therefore placing your implants at risk for Complications.

Allergic Reaction to Metallic Implants: A previously unknown metal allergy prior to placement of metallic dental implants, can be a cause for great discomfort and would be a prognosis for dental implant replacement using Ceramic Metal-Free Implants.

Lack of Bone and Tissue Regeneration and Growth: Your dental implant could fail if your body rejects the dental implants or just does not regenerate the bone and tissue growth necessary to properly blend within your existing teeth and jaw.

Peri-implantitis Issues: Peri-implantitis is a condition that usually occurs when proper oral hygiene is not followed and regular visits to your dentist are not taking place to insure proper care and use of your dental implants.
