Dental Implant Problems Threaten Your Investment

The importance of receiving dental implants from a highly qualified, skilled implant specialist cannot be overstated. A number of factors lead to implant problems or failure, many resulting from gambling with cheap implants or placement by an inexperienced dentist. Dr. Darrin Rapoport delivers the world-class care you need when your implants (and oral health investment) are in trouble.

Why Dental Implants Fail

When you trust your dental implant procedure with an unqualified or inexperienced dentist, you risk short-term and long-term issues caused by improperly fitted implants or lack of instruction on how to properly maintain your dental health after your procedure. Whether you’re looking to avoid these issues or need to repair damage caused by a previous dental procedure, contact us today.

Types of Dental Implant Failure

Early Failure

More common, early dental implant failure typically occurs prior to placing the final implant restoration. Causes include healing or systemic issues or a technical mishap during surgery.

Latent Failure

Latent implant failure occurs after some time, usually due to subpar maintenance of oral hygiene and the implant or during the restorative phase. Restorative issues often result from improper treatment planning or problems with occlusion (how teeth bite together).

Dr. Rapoport describes possible problems with implants and why it’s so important to seek a specially trained implant specialist.
