What are the potential problems with implants that can occur?
For many decades, dental implant procedures have thrived as the most promising natural-looking and natural-feeling tooth replacement option and encompass life-changing benefits. Since implants are snugly inserted into the bone, they mimic the whole tooth structure and can last for a lifetime. But its permanence is mainly determined by the type of implant and condition of your jawbone. So, let’s talk about possible problems with implants.
The conventional dental implant has two-phase procedures that require bone to heal tightly around the implant for solid support. Problems with implants are not usually caused by implants themselves, but by the weakening of the bone. A one-phase implant has an advantage in this case. As it is a one-piece item and relatively long, its stability is less affected by any kind of bone loss.
Fortunately, there are not too many known problems with implants that we should worry about. At the same time, there are some, fortunately, rare problems with implants that we need to talk about when writing on this topic.
COMMON PROBLEMS DURING THE HEALING PERIOD
For an implant to be fixed properly, it has to be surrounded by healthy gum & bone and the poor condition affects the implant’s ability to stay firmly attached to the jawbone. Under two-phased dental implant procedures, an implant is likely to become loose that may require bone grafting. Even though the track record of dental implants is pretty impressive, some patients do experience complications, problems with implants as mentioned below.
– The unsuccessful osseointegration i.e. when an implant becomes loose or falls out. Osseointegration is defined as a process of direct functional & structural connection between bone & artificial teeth.
– The failure of osseointegration is caused by incorrect positioning, insufficient bone density, tissue damage, and/or fractured implants. If a patient lacks adequate bone height or volume, he or she might have to undergo a sinus lift or bone graft procedure.
IS THERE ANY POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS?
Yes, there is, the one-phase dental implant is far more advanced than the two-phased ones and offers many advantages. In the case of one-phase implants, if there is a problem with implants, for example, loosens due to bone destruction, it can be replaced with a thicker or longer one. It not only avoids the additional surgical intervention but shows similar success and a great survival rate. Since only one surgical intervention is required, there’s shorter treatment time and the prosthetic stage can start earlier. Besides, the one-phase immediate loading minimizes the circumstances for ‘Bone Grafting’ and ‘Sinus Lift.’
Talking about problems with implants, at Immediate Loading Implants, we use GENUINE SWISS IMPLANTS and implantation technology for ONE-PHASE IMPLANTATION. It is simple, painless, fast, and can be done in just 5 working days. There is no 3-6 healing or ossification process.
