What Causes Dental Implant Failure?

People suffer from dental implants for a number of reasons with poor oral hygiene at the top of the list. In fact, the number one cause of dental implant failure is a condition known as peri-implantitis.

This type of disease causes inflammation and gum tissue infection. This will eventually compromise the bone affecting stabilization. If your screws and posts begin to wobble, full dental implant failure isn’t far behind.

People at risk for Peri-implantitis

Some of the reasons that people may suffer from peri-implantitis include poor oral hygiene, chewing and smoking tobacco. Poor placement, inaccurate bone health and/or healing could also be to blame.

Dental implant failure also occurs in patients suffering from systemic diseases such as diabetes.

Poor oral hygiene is the leading cause of peri-implantitis. This makes oral hygiene imperative if you want to avoid dental implant failure.

Although your teeth are artificial your gums are not. You need to brush and floss like you used to. You should also use a medicated mouth rinse to keep bacteria from getting out of hand.

Because your implant dentist in South Carolina has decades of experience you can expect proper diagnosis and treatment.

Beginning with antibiotics and a deep clean, Bela Family Dentistry will hopefully be able to help your situation without surgery.
