Treatment of Failed Dental Implants

Dental implants are usually very successful, but sometimes they can fail. If that happens, we can help. At BrightCrafts Dental, we replace failed implants with new ones.

What are failed implants?

✓ Dental implant failures are rare, with a 95% success rate.
✓ If you experience a failed implant, we offer replacement at BrightCrafts Dental.

What happens when a dental implant fails?

As in all cases of dental intervention, the first step is consulting a dentist.

✓ Dental implants consist of three key components: a titanium implant inserted into the bone, an abutment, and a crown aligned with your natural teeth.

✓ Any breakage or loosening of these components can result in potential issues leading to implant failure.

✓ Dental implants, though made of metal, rely on osseointegration, a natural process where living cells form around the implant, securely anchoring it to your jawbone.

✓ With time, healthy bone envelops the implant, signifying the success of the procedure.

✓ Sometimes, inadequate osseointegration can lead to post-implantation complications.
