Why Some Implants Fail

Dental implants failures are of two types. Early failure and Long-Term failure. Problems that occur within the first 3-4 months after surgery are Early Failure. Incorrect placement, health risks, poor healing, or an existing infection can cause early implant failure.

When failure occurs in the first 1-10 years after surgery this is Long-term failure. Various reasons that range from poor oral hygiene to infection (peri-implantitis) can all cause Long-Term failure.

Regardless of timing, implant problems can become serious. They must be treated immediately.

Treating Implant Complications

Peri-Implantitis is the official term for an infection around your implant site. Unfortunately, peri-implantitis can sometimes develop through no fault of your own. However, the chances of this happening are very small.

More commonly, this disease develops because of poor oral hygiene. As such, the best way to keep your implants in good shape is by caring for them as you would your normal teeth. However, if you still experience problems, it’s very important to see a professional.

In some cases, dental implant failure might not be a result of peri-implantitis. If a dentist placed your implants incorrectly, for example, they might not heal well. This could lead to further complications if you do not remedy it correctly.
