Ideally, dental implants are not a type of treatment that should be performed with the thought of replacement in the future.
Since, it is a surgical procedure that is invasive and is carried out within the jaw bone, we tend to treatment plan with the intention of it lasting a lifetime through careful attention.
However, the top part of the connection can easily be replaced should there be chips in it or a change of colour is required.
But the actual dental implant within the bone was not intended to be replaced.
However, there may be several situations that may accelerate the deterioration and thus require the dental implant to be replaced sooner rather than later. Find out more.
The primary reason would be poor oral hygiene and inadequate hygiene visits after placement thus leading to infection.
Infected dental implants are like gum disease that can detach the gum and bone from the implant thus causing it to loosen up. Contact us today.
When this happens the implant can no longer support the teeth and there is a risk of further infection setting in.
In this situation the implant dentist may advise to “extract” the dental implant depending on how advanced the deterioration is.
If a new implant is required your dentist will look into your options at that point depending upon how you heal, the success of any gum treatment and the foundation of your mouth.
Replacing an implant: we can analyse what caused the implant to fail when bonding with the jaw, and offer various treatments options in replacing it.

My dental plan included quite intrusive treatment, all of which was carried out with concern for my comfort. Time was taken to insure that I was included in every decision to be made.
Everyone was very friendly and made me feel 'at home'. Thanks to the dentists at this amazing practice!!
