Dental Implant Failure & Salvage – Cleveland, TX

Restore Your New Smile

Dental implants boast a remarkable success rate of more than 95%, so you should not be overly worried that something will go wrong after your treatment. However, you should be aware that in rare cases, dental implant failure can occur. If you ever suspect that is happening to you, call our Cleveland, TX, team. We will examine your mouth, formulate a custom treatment plan, and do all we can to restore your new smile.

Why Do Dental Implants Fail?

An infection known as peri-implantitis is the most common cause of dental implant failure. It occurs when harmful bacteria attack the gum and bone tissue around an implant. Eventually, the damage can become so severe that the implant loses its base of support. In many cases, poor oral hygiene contributes to the development of peri-implantitis.

Other potential causes of dental implant failure include:

Dental implant failure can occur at virtually any time, whether it is weeks, months, years, or even decades after the initial placement surgery. Therefore, you should always monitor your oral health so you can take action at the first sign of a problem.

How Dental Implant Salvage Works

You should seek treatment as soon as you suspect there is a problem with one of your implants. The earlier you receive care, the more likely it is that the problem can be addressed via conservative means.

When you visit us for your appointment, we will examine your mouth in order to learn as much as possible about the problem. Then, we will formulate a treatment plan. You might need something relatively simple, such as a course of antibiotics. However, it is also possible that you will need more extensive treatment. In some cases, we must completely remove a failing implant. Later, we may be able to replace it with a new one.
