Failed Implant Restoration
Restoring Dental Implants That Have Failed
While dental implants are widely considered the most reliable and permanent tooth replacement procedure available today, with most studies showing an overall 10 year success rate of over 95% (98% if cared for properly); there are a few causes that can lead to dental implant failures (failed osseointegration). The most common reasons that can cause a dental implant to fail are chronic teeth grinding, poor bone quality and quantity as well as periodontal disease.
The good news is even after a failed dental implant complication occurs, the advancements in dental implant technology, there are many options to restore your missing tooth or teeth with another dental implant solution. Depending on the cause of the dental implant complications, restoration options may include:
Bone grafting and restoration: A process designed to rebuild the existing bone tissue to support a newly placed implant designed to restore the missing tooth where the previous implant failed.
Tissue Restoration: A process designed to restore the tissue around the tooth to restore the support around the tooth.
