What is Implant Replacement?
Implant replacement refers to a dental procedure that replaces a damaged, infected, or failing dental implant with a new one. It is an effective way to improve the function and appearance of your teeth while preventing further damage or infection.
Why is Implant Replacement Needed?
Why would you need an implant replacement? There are various reasons why a dental implant may become damaged, loose, or infected. Lack of proper oral hygiene, trauma, or natural wear and tear are some of the common reasons. If left untreated, a damaged implant can lead to further complications, such as bone loss or gum disease.
Who is a Candidate for Implant Replacement?
Are you experiencing pain or discomfort in the affected area? Have you noticed any issues with your dental implant? If you answered yes, you may be a candidate for implant replacement. Your dentist will evaluate your specific case and determine if implant replacement is the best course of action for you.
What Happens During the Implant Replacement Procedure?
During the implant replacement procedure, your dentist will remove the damaged or failing implant. Afterward, they will evaluate the surrounding area to ensure that it is healthy and able to support a new implant. Once the area is prepared, a new implant will be inserted and secured into place. Your dentist will provide you with aftercare instructions to ensure proper healing and maintenance of your new implant.
