Dental implant restoration

What do I do if my implant has failed?

As highlighted in a previous article cosmetic dentistry implants can occasionally fail. It must be said that successful planning and sound treatment principles by an experienced dental implant surgeon will minimise the risks of complications and failures. The more experienced the dental implant surgeon, the less likelihood of complications and failures.

To read the earlier article on the reasons cosmetic dental implants might fail.

Broadly speaking dental implant dentistry conducted by an experienced dental implant surgeon very rarely produces anything less than a great long-lasting result for the patient and with a good oral health regime cosmetic dentistry implants should last a lifetime.

The first thing to stress is that if you are experiencing any problems or even feel that something ‘just isn’t right’ contact the surgeon who performed your dental implant dentistry immediately.

Generally most problems can be addressed if attended to promptly. At Southside Implant Centre we are well placed to manage dental implant complications, with many years experience and training in treating complications.

If a dental implant does fail you may have the opportunity to have a second or replacement cosmetic dentistry implant inserted by your cosmetic dental surgeon. This is only done after the underlying cause for the initial failure is diagnosed and treated or addressed.  Failure to do this will almost certainly result in a second failure.

A failing implant may be able to be saved by building up the bone and gum tissue that surrounds it.

It is important to stress that removal is not common but if it happens ensure that you are in the hands of a surgeon experienced in dental implants dentistry, and every effort will be made to ensure a successful re-treatment.

As always, if you are considering surgical dental implants a dental implant surgeon will be able to guide you on the right dental implant for your needs.  You will be advised dental implant options and the right dental implant device for your needs.
