Our Team’s Expertise: Managing Implant Complications

With a 10-year success rate of over 95%, dental implants are known as the most advanced and effective way to restore missing teeth. It’s important for patients to be aware of potential complications, their causes, and the available treatment solutions. This page aims to provide valuable information on this topic to help patients make informed decisions about their dental implant journey.

Causes of Complications

Complications related to dental implants can be attributed to various factors:

  1. Biological — Poor oral hygiene, smoking, gum disease, systemic diseases (diabetes, etc), and certain medications.
  2. Structural — Insufficient bone density or volume and implant malposition.
  3. Dentist — Surgical errors, improper implant selection, or inadequate treatment planning.

Long-Term Effects

When complications occur, they affect the implant’s function, aesthetics, and overall oral health. Complications such as implant failure, peri-implantitis (inflammation around the implant), bone loss, gum recession, and compromised bite alignment can lead to discomfort, difficulty chewing, and aesthetic concerns. If left untreated, these complications can result in the loss of the dental implant and surrounding supporting structures, requiring additional treatments, and potential additional costs.

Treatment Solutions

Fortunately, there are treatment solutions available for complications related to dental implants. The specific treatment approach depends on the nature and severity of the complication. Through personalized treatment plans, Dr. Bensoussan can identify appropriate solutions to resolve complications and restore the health and function of your dental implant.

In cases of peri-implantitis, for example, thorough cleaning of the implant surface, antimicrobial therapy, and bone grafting may be recommended to eliminate infection and promote healing. Surgical interventions such as bone grafting or sinus lift procedures may also be utilized to address inadequate bone volume or density. In more severe cases, implant removal and replacement may be necessary.

Prevention and Maintenance

Prevention is key to minimizing the risk of complications related to dental implants. Maintaining diligent home care, attending regular dental check-ups, and following the recommended post-operative care instructions are crucial. It is also important to disclose your complete medical history and any medications you are taking to us to ensure Dr. Bensoussan considers all relevant factors during the case workup.
