FAILING DENTAL IMPLANTS – WEST PALM BEACH, FL

Put a Stop to Failing Implants

What do I do if my implants fail?

Why Do Dental Implants Fail?

Dental implants have an extremely high success rate – 98 percent. There are some rare cases, however, when the implant will start to fail. Bone loss, trauma, or peri-implantitis (similar to gum disease) can all lead to failing implants.

If you believe your dental implants are failing, you should be seen by a dentist as soon as possible to prevent damage. At South Florida Sedation Dentistry, Dr. Senft will use his expertise to properly diagnose how to move forward with treatment and peri-implantitis care.

Causes of Failing Dental Implants

  • Peri-Implantitis
  • Loss of bone volume
  • Poor placement
  • Poor hygiene
  • Trauma

Peri-Implantitis Treatment

Peri-implantitis has symptoms very similar to gum disease and causes the gum to become inflamed. This can eventually cause the them to recede around the dental implant, making it a leading cause of failing dental implants. It can be caused by poor dental hygiene and smoking. Some other notable symptoms include bleeding gums or pain around the implant.

To treat peri-implantitis, Dr. Senft will remove infected gum tissue, as well as any bacteria and tartar buildup around the dental implant. If the case is severe enough, bone grafting may be necessary. Once your treatment is over, make sure to use good dental hygiene habits to help prevent it from returning.
