Salvaging failed implants by reversing effects of bone loss around the implant site
Dental implants are designed to last for life and have a success rate of up to 98%. However, dental implants could fail within a few months of the surgery or not for several years. Implants may fail due to various reasons such as, gum disease around teeth next to an implant, the implant’s position, or caused by a previous surgery. Signs of implant failure could be, pain, swelling or a loose implant. Patients can prevent failure with good oral hygiene and routine follow-up exams with their doctor.
