Dental implants are often ideal for restoring a lost tooth, several lost teeth, or a full set because they function like natural teeth. However, if an implant develops complications, treatment must be performed immediately.

Common implant complications

The most common complication associated with dental implants is inflammation of the soft tissues, leading to pain at the implant site. Other implant complications include:  

  • Infection in the bone or gums
  • Nerve injury 
  • Receding gum tissue
  • Sinus issues
  • Implant fracture
  • Implant failure

Preventing complications

To reduce the risk of implant complications, ensure a highly trained dentist performs your procedure with extensive experience in placing dental implants. It is vital to confirm the diagnosis of potential issues beforehand and inform you of the necessary steps for successful implant surgery. Regular follow-up visits after the procedure are essential.

What are the treatment options for implant complications?

If complications occur after an implant is placed, treatment may be required to repair the problem or alleviate discomfort. This can range from:

  • Antibiotics 
  • Anti-inflammatory medication administered orally or directly into the area
  • Minor surgical procedures like adjustment of the implant angle or restoration with crowns or bridges
  • Replacing a failed implant

Implant complications can be treated

Overall, while there are risks associated with dental implants, they offer an effective long-term solution when placed correctly, with ultimate precision. Seeking an experienced dentist specializing in this field will ensure you receive quality care while reducing your risk of complications and achieving optimal results.
