  • Potential Complications from Dental Implants

    Dental implants are the treatment of choice for many patients when it comes to replacing missing teeth. With their artificial tooth roots made from biocompatible materials, permanent installation, and natural appearance, dental implants are the next best thing to having your natural teeth. In spite of this, people understandably want to know the potential problems with dental implants before they agree to get them.dental implants

    Possible Dental Implant Issues

    In 95 percent of cases, patients experience no problems during the procedure or as they adjust to the dental implants. Even so, it’s important to be aware of possible complications so you can recognize them. A common problem that comes up before a patient receives dental implants is that he or she has insufficient bone mass to support them. Fortunately, this is something that Dr. Mashnouk or Dr. Kawar of Cass Family Dental can easily correct. Your dentist simply transfers bone mass from another area of your mouth where it is more prevalent.

    Some potential complications after you have received dental implants include:

    • Infection
    • Fractured implants
    • Damage to the nerves, blood vessels, gums, and other teeth
    • Post-surgical inflammation that does not go away within a few days
    • Ongoing numbness of the gums, lips, or cheeks
    • Pain due to the new tooth roots not fusing properly
    • Allergy to titanium alloy that develops after the procedure is complete

    It is important to seek a professional dentist if you experience any of the above issues. One of our dentists will complete an oral examination immediately to determine what is causing the problem and then provide immediate treatment. It is extremely rare to have to remove or replace dental implants. A minor corrective procedure or taking a prescription medication are usually the only steps necessary to correct problems with them. You can also avoid implant complications by taking excellent care of your new replacement teeth.
