Loose Dental Implants

Unfortunately, there is a lot of dental implant failure that needs to be treated. A large portion of Dr. Chal’s dental practice is devoted to re-treating dental implant patients, re-doing work that had already been done once.

A loose dental implant can be from several possible causes:

  • The bone around the implant doesn’t fill in and bond to the implant.
  • Infection around the implant.
  • There wasn’t enough quality bone around the implant.
  • It heals properly, but later becomes infected. Periimplantitis.
  • Something can break – the implant, the implant screw, the crown on the implant.

Broken restorations can be repaired. But a fractured implant will need to be removed.
