Dental Implant Restoration
Dental implant restoration happens when dental implants fail. Generally speaking, dental implants have a relatively high rate of success. In most cases, the success rates be as high as 99%. However, when they fail, they often need to be replaced. Having dental implants replaced can be a difficult period. Our implants specialists at Dental Arts of Frederick can help guide you through this process.
Reasons for Implant Failure
The fact that implant restoration happens when dental implants fail, means that the first step in the replacement process should be to understand the reasons for failure. Dental implants fail for a wide range of reasons. These are some of the most common reasons for the failure of dental implants.
One of the most common reasons for implant failure is misalignment. A significant challenge in implant dentistry is positioning the implant so that it is completely covered by bone. Implants do not always perform best when placed in areas where the bone is strongest.
As a result, there is a chance that the implant and bone will become misaligned. If the implant is not properly aligned with the bone, the crowns will not sit flush with the gums and the dark grey metal of the implant will show through.
Bad Mouth Impressions
Another issue is poorly taken impressions. After the dentist takes an impression, the crowns are created in a dental laboratory. Replacement teeth will not fit properly if the impressions are not accurate. A slight misalignment can cause a visible space between the crown and the gums, affecting how the teeth look and function.
Infections also cause implant failure. Due to bacteria preferring dark, moist environments, this can result in gum infection. Infections can be treated, but the implant may need to be replaced. If the cement used to attach the new dental crown to the implant post leaks, it could spread bacteria to the gums.
As a result, having a skilled implant dentist is critical. They must be at ease in order to perform the procedure precisely under high magnification, reducing the possibility of gaps and errors.
What Does Dental Implant Restoration Involve?
The approach to repairing the implant is determined in part by the specific area of the implant that needs to be fixed. If the implant does not take, you will need to begin the process all over again, which can take as many as four steps. It can only be removed from the body through a surgical procedure.
It is possible that you will need a bone graft in order to restore the health of your jawbone. If your implant became loose as a result of insufficient density, you will not be able to get a replacement until the underlying issue has been fixed.
After you have sufficiently recovered from this procedure, we will resume the placement of the dental implants. We are able to replace a tooth that has been chipped or otherwise damaged dental crown without needing to repair the implant itself or the titanium screw.
If you are struggling with any of these issues, you might be at risk for dental implant failure. Call Dental Arts of Frederick at 301-732-7277 and help us guide you through the process.
