Why Do Dental Implants Fail?

The most common cause of dental implant failure is a condition called “peri-implantitis.” This happens when bacteria and infection damage the connective tissue from around the implant and weaken the supporting jawbone structure. In the majority of cases, this is caused by poor oral hygiene and untreated gum disease. Other ways that dental implants can fail include injury, failed osseointegration, and certain medical conditions, like uncontrolled diabetes.

Symptoms of Failed Dental Implants

Dental implant failure doesn’t always happen right after the implants have been placed. Failure can also occur many years after you’ve had your implants. Here are some of the symptoms to be on the lookout for:

  • Pain and discomfort
  • Gum recession around the implant
  • Loose dental implant
  • Difficulty chewing
  • Gum inflammation
