  • A few factors can cause dental implants to fail, including:
    1. Positioning of the implants
    Sometimes the positioning of the bone doesn't align with that of the implant. Therefore, after the crowns are placed, they will look unnatural, the gum will recede, and the grey implants will be visible around the gum—this causes dental implant failure. In addition, rectifying the process can cause damage to the bone as well as the surrounding teeth. Hence the dentist must get it right the first time.
    1. Peri-implantitis
    The inflammatory response resulting from peri-implants can sometimes occur shortly after the procedure is completed, caused by a formation of bacteria in the mouth. Peri-implantitis can damage both the gum and the bone around the implant resulting in implant failure or bone loss. However, the condition is treatable, and the implant needs to be replaced.
     
    1. Foreign body rejection and allergic reaction
    When you place a foreign object into the body, there might be side effects. For example, dental implants and other materials used for the implant procedure may cause a localised reaction. The patient might also be allergic to the metal in the implants or the materials used to make the crown. To make a dental implant and tooth replacement, the dentist will ask you if you have any allergies.
     
    1. Failed osseointegration
    Osseointegration describes the development of the structural link between the bone and the newly inserted titanium implant. When the implant doesn't fully merge with the bone, it is left loose and can fall out. It happens due to insufficient bone where the implant is placed.
     
    1. Poorly taken impressions
    Impressions are moulded by the dentists and sent to the laboratory to make the crown. If these impressions are poorly taken, the replacement teeth will not fit. In addition, there will be a gap between the crown and the gum that will allow bacteria into the gum resulting in an infection. The infection leads to implant failure.
     
    1. Loose implant
    The metal implant post can become loose. When the implant post becomes loose, the movement can cause the implant to fracture.
     
    It is essential to choose a great dental centre to avoid dental implant failure. Most of these problems can be avoided if you have an excellent dentist perform the procedure.
