Why Do I Have Failing Tooth Implants?

Individuals can identify the dangers and take the necessary precautions to avoid implant failure by knowing the likely reasons.

Bad Dental Hygiene

Poor oral hygiene habits, such as sporadic routines and infrequent dental examinations, can cause plaque and germs to build up near the implant site. The swelling and infection that follow may cause the tissue around the implant to deteriorate, jeopardizing the reliability of the implant and eventually ending in failure.

The Peri-Implantitis

Inflammation and deterioration of bone surrounding the implant site are signs of peri-implantitis, which may lead to implant movement and ultimate collapse. Regular dental checkups and good oral hygiene are essential for the early diagnosis and treatment of peri-implantitis.

Not Enough Bone Support

Without sufficient support, the implant might not fuse well with the surrounding bone, which could eventually result in implant failure. In certain circumstances, bone grafting techniques could increase bone density and give the implant a more secure base.

Surgical Overloading

Implant overloading results from severe or early tension on the implant brought on by bad habits like clenching your teeth. It may put the implant and its neighboring tissues under mechanical stress, resulting in implant failure and bone loss.

Lifestyle Behavior

Several illnesses can hinder the healing process and raise the possibility of implant failure. Smoking is one lifestyle choice that can impair the healing abilities of the body, which increases the likelihood of implant problems and loss.

Planning a Treatment

The success and durability of dental implant operations depend heavily on thorough examinations and meticulous planning for therapy by qualified dental specialists. Selecting the right implant size or type for your unique oral health requirements may result from sufficient pre-implant evaluation and therapy planning.

Speaking with licensed dental specialists can offer insightful advice on how to avoid implant failure and maintain long-term oral health. Contact our experienced and professional team today.
