Dental Implant Problems

Dental implants have revolutionized oral surgery, creating a permanent tooth replacement solution for teeth that can be both beautiful and healthy. Today's oral surgery patients are turning to dental implants as they are becoming more aware of the importance of replacing missing teeth. While rare, as with all procedures, dental implants carry the risk of complications. Dr. John Koutsoyiannis works closely with both a periodontist and NYC implant dentist so that you feel comfortable that you are receiving the best care possible from one of NYC's top periodontists / oral surgeons. These doctors use the latest techniques and state-of-the-art technologies for the most effective treatment possible. If your dental implants are giving you any trouble or causing any pain, visit Dr. John for an oral evaluation.

WHAT ARE DENTAL IMPLANT COMPLICATIONS?

Dental implant surgery is a common procedure that’s largely completed without any adverse side effects. Still, dental implant complications can happen, although highly unlikely when performed by an expert implant dentist in NYC. Peri-implantitis is one of the most common dental implant complications. Peri-implantitis is a condition that causes inflammation of your gums and bone structure around the dental implant. Peri-implantitis can lead to bone disintegration and even loss of the dental implant. Your risk of getting peri-implantitis increases if you smoke, are over age 65, or have diabetes. Symptoms of peri-implantitis include bleeding gums, swollen mucous membranes, pain around a dental implant, jawbone loss, and a dental implant that is loose and unstable.

An infected dental implant is another common dental implant complication. A dental implant infection happens because of bacteria forming after a dental implant procedure. This can occur either immediately or in the months following dental implant surgery. Signs that your dental implant is infected include a foul taste in the mouth, bad breath, pain around the dental implant, difficulty eating, a loose implant, or pus or blood from the gums at the site of your dental implant. Additionally, some patients may experience gum recession, which, if left untreated, can expose the titanium post of the dental implant. If any of these dental implant complications symptoms apply to you, contact an implant dentist in NYC right away to schedule an appointment to discuss your treatment options.

WHO IS AN IDEAL CANDIDATE FOR DENTAL IMPLANT COMPLICATION CORRECTIONS?

Anyone experiencing pain or complications following dental implant surgery should see an NYC implant dentist. To determine your specific needs, an oral evaluation will be performed and x-rays will be taken. The information gained from an evaluation and x-rays will tell your surgeon the severity of your dental implant complication. With this information, an effective treatment plan can be created.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DURING MY TREATMENT FOR A DENTAL IMPLANT COMPLICATION?

The appropriate dental implant complication treatment depends on the severity of your symptoms and how long you have been experiencing dental implant problems. Revision dental surgery is an option to replace the dental implant and treat any underlying infection. The goal of dental implant correction is to stop an infection or pain from progressing and to keep the implant site intact. The periodontist and / or oral surgeon can customize a dental surgery for your specific needs to treat your dental implant complications.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT AFTER MY DENTAL IMPLANT COMPLICATION TREATMENT?

Recovery from treatment for a dental implant complication will depend on the specific treatment or surgery you underwent to alleviate any dental implant problems. Less invasive treatments, such as treating a minor infection or pain, will have a shorter recovery time. On the other hand, more extensive dental implant repairs, such as revision dental implant surgery, may require a longer recovery time. In some cases, an antiseptic mouthwash is prescribed to promote healing and reduce the risk of an infection developing. Your dentist/oral surgeon will provide you with detailed post-operative instructions following your dental implant complication procedure.
