Signs of implant complications

We encourage you to maintain your regular 6-month check-ins with your dentist. This ensures any small developing implant complications can be caught and addressed as soon as possible. Between visits, call us at (760) 741-5775 if you notice any of the following symptoms of implant failure:

  • Severe discomfort & pain
  • Loose or shifting implant
  • Gum swelling & inflammation
  • Gum recession around the implant
  • Loose or broken implant crown
  • Difficulty chewing or speaking

What causes a failed implant?

A problem with your implant could be caused by one or a combination of factors:

  • Gum disease
  • Poor dental hygiene
  • Smoking and tobacco use
  • Insufficient jaw bone
  • Improper implant placement
  • Accidents

What happens when an implant fails?

Depending on how early we catch the failed implant and the cause and severity of the failure, we’ll create a treatment plan to fit your needs and ensure long-term implant success. Generally, there are a few treatment options that can happen when an implant fails:

  • Stabilize the existing implant
  • Remove the failed implant, allow time to heal, and address the underlying issue
  • Remove and place a new implant immediately

Dr. Reyes and his team have been more than amazing! I came from a dentist’s office that did not do a great job with my teeth. When I found Dr. Reyes he fixed every issue in just a couple of visits.
