Problems with dental implants are incredibly rare. At the practice of Dr. Joseph M. Boesch, when we recommend dental implants, we point to their high rate of success. Of course, it depends on the skill and experience of your dentist. However, if there is an issue, your implant can loosen. At the same time, the tooth part of your implant, or the crown, can crack or even become dislodged. Rest assured, Dr. Boesch has over thirty years of experience and is an expert in implant restoration.
A large reason why your dental implant may come loose is that the lack of osseointegration taking place. During this process, the titanium from the implant infuses with your jawbone. Over time, small amounts of bone are deposited around the implant area. This build-up makes a dental implant as strong as a natural tooth. So, if this process does not finish before loosening occurs, you may have complications with your implant sometime soon. Plus, the sturdiness of your dental implants depends on your overall oral care, says Dr. Joseph M. Boesch.
