Dental implants are a long-term solution to replacing missing teeth, offering incomparable benefits to your well-being and lifestyle. But what happens when failing dental implants threaten your oral health and smile? Certain factors or conditions may lead to failing dental implants, including poor oral hygiene, excess dental cement, smoking and diabetes, all of which may contribute to a serious condition known as peri-implantitis, the leading cause of failing dental implants. Improper placement of each dental implant is also a contributing factor to dental implants becoming unstable, which is why we recommend you have your implants placed by an experienced oral surgeon you can trust. Early identification of a dental implant problem like peri-implantitis and treatment from our skilled team of oral surgeons can save failing dental implants, and your tooth replacement investment.
