Dental Implant Problems

Having a missing tooth can be a traumatized experience for people as not only will it look aesthetically poor but has other implications attached. With the advancement in dentistry, you now have various ways to get this fixed. Once you visit a dental clinic, your dentist will well guide you about the options available and what option will suit you well.

One such option is Dental Implants. They are the best solution to missing teeth. They look and work exactly like your natural teeth. Dental Implants are embedded into your gums and works as the artificial bone to support your tooth. Since you have lost your tooth the bone too will stop supporting and hence you will face the problem of jawbone loss which will make your face look sagging. Dental implants overcome this problem. They help you prevent the jawbone loss, improving your facial appearance and are a long-lasting solution to your missing tooth.

Going by the standards and the advancement in dental technology, Dental Implant procedure has a success rate of 98% however, in that 2 % where the Dental Implants fail to have a risk attached. Sure, the Dental Implants face certain potential problems and that becomes the reason for that 2% failure. The issues include:


When you get your Dental Implant surgery done it is likely to feel a little discomfort during the initial few days. This is because you have something foreign in your mouth and you are not used to it. There are also chances of swelling and infection as the procedure was a little intensive. The condition wherein you experience infection after having dental implants placed is called peri-implantitis.

It is very important to visit a dental clinic and get it treated. Because if left untreated, it can lead to bleeding in gums, pain which will eventually lead to pus and at times even bone loss. All of this will contribute to Implant failure. Normally this occurs in people suffering from diabetes or the ones who had a periodontal disease prior to the implant surgery.

If you are not maintaining your oral hygiene as in you are a tobacco user or a smoker and practice poor oral hygiene, then you are likely to get the condition called peri-implantitis. It is also linked to the issue called bruxism (jaw clenching or teeth grinding).

To treat the issue as mentioned above one need not undergo the proper surgical procedure. Your Aria Dental clinic can explore new options and alternatives such as antimicrobial therapy. If nothing works only then will they go with the surgical procedure to cure the same?


Dental Implants are placed because they are a strong and healthy option that supports your teeth and jawbone. It helps in chewing the food and can withstand any pressure. However, sometimes your dental implant shifts or loosen and that can be due to a variety of reasons. One of the most and common reasons for the same is bone density. If there is insufficient bone density, then it will not support the implant structure or the bone tissue. This will loosen the bond between the tissue and the titanium screw placed inside the gums.

If this is the case, then the usual option is bone graft procedure. In this, a bone is added to the jaw to provide support to the implant and to create a denser and stable base for placing the implant.

One can have insufficient bone density due to various factors i.e. one can have this since the very beginning, can develop with age, can be a hereditary issue or can develop due to health complications. The technique of bone graft not only helps in overcoming the above factors but makes your jaw healthy in general which can provide support to Implants. However, the healing period of the jaw is months with bone graft.

In addition to the problems raised above having autoimmune disease also increase the rate of implant failure. It is a condition where your immune system attacks itself and destroy the tissues of your body. This will cause the rejection of the body for Dental Implants. 

Nevertheless, dental implants are and will be a great success and any implications and concerns can be taken care of by your implantologist. You just need to closely work with them and make sure that the plans made are followed.
