Why do dental implants sometimes fail?

Dental implant failures, where the implant becomes loose and inoperative, are rare; but even if the implant had been successfully inserted, factors like your general health, the surgery itself, or postoperative care can contribute to failure.

Early dental implant failure

This happens when an implant is placed properly, but fails to integrate with the bone in your gums.

Late or long-term failure:

Even if an implant has been embedded solidly into the bone, the passage of time may lead to a slow loss of bone around the implant.

Accidents

An extreme, high-impact accident could also lead to implant failure.

Bruxism (bad bite)

Improper bites cause undue strain on the implants, leading to unnatural pressure and triggering failure.

Bacterial infection

Sometimes the patient may forget to take care of the implants, leaving bacteria on the dental implant that may cause infections. A dental infection is actually the most common reason for dental implant failures.

What should I do about a failing implant?

When your dental implant feels loose, or if you feel pain in the area of the implant, it’s possible that the implant has failed.

If you think you’re suffering from a dental implant failure, call our office as soon as possible to prevent further jawbone deterioration, or gum infection. We’re ready to help you whenever you need assistance!

What are my options for a failed dental implant?

The good news is, if caught early enough, failed dental implants can be saved. In other cases, we’ll place a new implant in the same place as the first one. If it’s your second or third implant, our dental implant specialists may recommend other options such as dental bridge, veneers, or even a partial plate.

Can you fix failed dental implants?

When a dental implant fails, it means that there’s a reason why. We need to remove the failed implant to address that dental problem, and allow your gums and bone to heal. Then, we would look into helping you get a new implant to bring your beautiful smile back!
