Having an Implant Failure?
Dental implants have a success rate of 98%, but there is a risk of complications or failure.
What causes a Dental Implant failure? It may be a combination of factors, including:
- Aggressive Gum disease
- Deficient jaw bone
- Medical or Systemic conditions
- Poor oral hygiene maintenance
- Improper implant placement
We’re your Centre for treating a failed implant in Chandigarh and Tricity. Our team is highly skilled at restoring and replacing failing implants. More importantly, we’ll make sure that this time, your Dental Implant is set up for success.
Signs and Symptoms
- Severe Discomfort and Pain
Early signs of failure include discomfort and dull non radiating pain around the implant. Functionality and chewing with restored dental implants becomes difficult.
- Inflammation around Implant
Peri-implantitis is an inflammatory diseased condition affecting the soft and hard gum tissues around dental implants. Similar to a natural tooth, bacteria can build up on the base of the implant, below the gum line causing swelling.
- Recession of Gums around Implant
Gums can recede around dental implants. Gum recession with dental implants can look unaesthetic, make patients feel self-conscious, and even result in implant failure.
- Mobility or Loose Implant
A failed Dental implant will be consistently movable. If your dentist notices that your implant is mobile, they might recommend an X-ray to check your bone growth around the Implant.
We fix the Failed Implants!
We specialise in providing alternate treatments as well as replacing the failed implants. Our recommendation for repairing your implant will depend on various factors and different treatment protocols. We will re-evaluate all the systemic medical conditions as well.
If we catch a problem early on, we will take appropriate preventive measures to stabilise the implant and address the issue. However, in certain peculiar situations we have to remove the failed implant.
In some cases, a new implant that better fits your individual needs can be placed immediately. Sometimes, added measures are needed, such as a bone grafting procedure or sinus lift, to help support your implant placement. In more severe cases, it could take several months before your implant area is healed.
If you’re worried your implant might be failing, contact us immediately. The sooner we address the issue, the better chance we have of saving the implant.
