Why Some Dental Implants Fail

Dental implants can fail for a variety of reasons, but they generally fall into two categories: early failure and long-term failure. Early failure describes dental implant problems that occur within the first 3-4 months after surgery. This can be a result of an incorrect placement, health or medication risks, poor healing, or existing infection. Long-term failure occurs in the first 1-10 years after surgery. This can be due to chronic clenching and grinding, poor oral hygiene, lack of bone or soft tissue support, and infection (peri-implantitis). In either case, dental implant problems can become serious and need to be treated immediately. And while there may be many reasons for dental implant failure, the most common complication associated with dental implants is peri-implantitis, a condition we can treat with minimally invasive dental laser therapy.

Treating Dental Implant Complications

Treatment for peri-implantitis is designed to remove disease and infection from around a dental implant. Usually the result of improper oral hygiene, peri-implantitis develops when bacteria from plaque and tartar buildup around dental implants infect the gum tissue. As bacteria spreads, the gum tissue will recede and expose both the implant and bone to further infection and deterioration. Using our laser therapy protocol, we can painlessly eradicate diseased tissue, bacteria, and damaged bone from around the dental implant. If bone grafting is needed to restore support, we can complete this procedure as well. With this comprehensive treatment, we can help ensure your dental implant can be saved and provide you with a healthy smile long-term.
