Why Dental Implants Fail

Posted on 3/6/2023 by Evan
Why Dental Implants FailWhen a dental implant fails, it is unlike when an organ transplant is rejected, and the recipient's body rejects the donor organ, causing potentially fatal tissue necrosis. When an implant fails, it is usually because the post did not fuse with the bone or the implant itself broke. These occurrences might be unpleasant and painful, but oral surgeons can effectively fix dental implant failure.

What Causes Dental Implants To Fail And How Can You Prevent This?

Dental implants almost seldom fail, so that's also a relief. The average lifespan of a titanium dental implant is 25–35 years, and oral surgeons report a 90–97% success rate for at least 15 years. You need not, however, put your faith in chance. Ensure your new dental implants last a lifetime by following these measures and avoiding these dangers.

Peri-implantitis is another name for dental implant failure. When dental implants don't take, infection at the implant site is usually to blame. Your immune system is too preoccupied with the infection to permit implant post-integration. Infections can be prevented with the proper surgical technique, antibiotics, and postoperative care.

Notify your oral surgeon if you get severe facial swelling, and seek immediate medical attention if you also develop a fever, nausea, or vomiting. In addition, make an effort to maintain a healthy way of life. It is for your good, not merely the sake of your implants. Dental implants will fare even better if you care for your general health. This is how you make sure they last longer.
