Why Do Dental Implants Fail?

While dental implants are considered the most comprehensive and reliable tooth replacement method, one of the major causes of failure is peri-implantitis. This is an infection in the gums surrounding the implants, which can end up destroying the connective tissues holding them in place. In most cases, peri-implantitis happens as a result of bacterial growth due to a lack of good oral hygiene, along with other factors that increase the risk of infection.

Dental implants can also fail because of improper osseointegration. The titanium posts and jawbone may not bond together sufficiently, meaning your new restorations won’t be able to hold up for long or at all. Additional reasons for failure include accidental trauma and serious medical conditions like cancer.

Symptoms of Failed Dental Implants

How Dental Implant Salvage Works

If there’s a problem with your dental implants due to an infection or injury, our team can help address the situation to preserve your results.

The most important thing to remember is that the faster you get treatment, the higher the likelihood that you can keep your implant safe and healthy.
