Timely treatment is the best way to save your new teeth.

Common Dental Implant Complications

Dental implant complications, while rare, come in all forms. Some cases are easily preventable with proper at-home hygiene, while others can be the result of an accident. No matter their cause, our team is dedicated to providing you with the care you need to keep your smile healthy and attractive. Below is a list of several common causes of dental implant complications and how we can help!

Similar to gum disease, peri-implantitis occurs when the area surrounding an implant becomes infected by disease. Without treatment, the disease will eat away at the gum and bone tissue, causing the implant to fail. Our team can treat the infection and cleanse the area, saving your implant and your health.

If you have been in an accident and suffered trauma to the implant, possibly loosening it or knocking it out entirely, you will need attention as soon as possible to preserve your mouth. We are able to rebuild bone with grafting techniques and can even help re-implant a knocked-out tooth. Cracked or damaged dental crowns can also be rebuilt in our state-of-the-art dental lab!

When you need to replace a tooth that is in the front of your mouth, or in the “aesthetic zone,” seeking an experienced prosthodontist or implant dentist is the best way to get the results you deserve. This area of the mouth proves complex because the angle and position must be just right, otherwise, imperfections will be visible in the smile. Our team has the experience to accurately place your implants into your jawbone, so they give you a natural and beautiful smile.

When you are missing upper molar teeth, it becomes troublesome to replace them easily because there is often less bone volume. The reason for this is because the sinus cavity resides above the jaw here. We can perform an advanced sinus lift procedure to lift the membrane within the cavity and pack the area with bone graft material. Our team is gentle enough to perform this procedure without damage to your sinus.
