What to do when a dental implant comes out

Dental implants are artificial roots that have been created to replace a missing tooth. Normally, dental implants are made of titanium or zirconium. In addition, it is worth mentioning that at Clínica Dental Galindo we work with different types of dental implants. For example: immediate load implants, dental implants in one hour, implants without bone and micro-implants. Before the surgery is performed, a preliminary study is made of the patient’s characteristics because, although there are very few cases, the patient may reject the implants. Below, we explain why implants can be rejected.

Why are dental implants rejected? Will I reject my dental implant? These are frequent questions asked by patients when they are about to undergo treatment with dental implants.

Actually, rejections of dental implants happen very rarely. We could affirm that in Clínica Dental Galindo, out of every 100 implants that are placed, rejection only occurs in 2.5% of the implants.

Bleeding and suppuration. Pain around the implant and in the operated area. Bacterial plaque around the dental implant. In more advanced cases there will also be mobility of the implant.

Why not integrate dental implants?

Usually, an implant that has not been integrated does not produce pain. We know that it has failed because when an X-ray of the area is taken after the post-surgical waiting period, we observe that there is no bone around the implant. In some cases, we also find suppuration of the affected area.

On the other hand, peri-implantitis can cause us to lose an implant in the medium or long term. It is defined as an inflammatory process that will affect the tissues surrounding an implant under load, producing a loss of the supporting bone. The fundamental causes are bacterial colonization and occlusal overload. Therefore, it is very important that the patient understands the importance of regular maintenance visits to control these factors. Likewise, correct oral hygiene and healthy habits will favor the success of implant treatment in the long term.

If the implant has not osseointegrated, the specialist will proceed to remove it and eliminate the surrounding inflammatory tissue. After a few months, another implant will be placed again at no cost to the patient.

When we have implants it is very important to carry out a correct maintenance and control of tartar and bacterial plaque that is deposited around the implants so that the bone that supports them does not suffer resorption that could lead to the loss of the implants (peri-implantitis).

When is the implant contraindicated?

Causes of rejection of dental implants

The rejection rate of dental implants is between 3 and 5%. The first possible case for dental implant failure is that, the rejection of the bone to the implant material. Although with today’s titanium dental implants we repeat that this is very unlikely as this material is extremely hypoallergenic and does not generate reactions.

It is possible that you have had an abscess in the tooth and when the dentist removes the tooth, your immune system can fight the infection until it disappears. If necessary, your dentist will give you antibiotics. It is still possible for some of the infection to remain in the bone. Then, when the dental implant is placed, the bacteria that live there interfere with the natural healing process, also called osseointegration.

The other possible source of infection is gum disease. The tooth that is extracted may be healthy but the gum is not. Again, there are bacteria along the gum in that area and healing problems will occur.

Where to report a bad dental treatment

We must properly define the dental implant, which is a piece of titanium inserted in the maxillary or mandibular bone and intended to simulate the root of the tooth, on which the crown or prosthesis will be placed later, which is the piece intended to imitate the visible part of the tooth.

Peri-implantitis is an inflammatory disease that produces pathological changes around the bone tissue that supports a dental implant. Talking about this condition is synonymous with talking about infection since this inflammation is produced by bacteria.

When this situation occurs, we can also speak of rejection of the implant, since the healing process is not carried out properly, since a soft cellular tissue is interposed between the bone and the titanium implant, not allowing osseointegration.

When asked if it is possible for a dental implant to become infected, we must first clarify that this complication of dental implants is very rare (its risk is only 2%), however, under certain circumstances it can occur, requiring immediate medical attention.
