The implant did not take root: reasons, signs of rejection and treatment tactics

Implantation is a modern technique for solving problems with missing teeth. Each person who is going to undergo surgery is concerned about the following issues: indications and contraindications, the duration of the recovery period, the probability of non-survival of the artificial structure. Indeed, can there be an implant rejection after dental implantation?
An implant is a titanium screw implanted into human bone tissue. The operation requires the correct approach from the patient and professionalism from the implantologist. “Sobolevsky dentistry” is equipped with the best equipment, we employ real professionals, and we recommend only the best designs of foreign manufacturers to patients, so the risk of rejection of the implant is reduced to almost zero. The survival rate of implants installed in our clinic is high and is 99%.

The implant does not take root: causes and symptoms of rejection

Surgery to restore the integrity of the dentition involves surgery. The implant is implanted into the bone, and the rate of engraftment lasts from three to six months-all individually. This method is the most effective and long-term method of dental renewal. The probability of rejection of an artificial structure is significantly low and is only 1-2%.

The dental implant did not take root: possible reasons.

  • Perimplantitis-inflammation of the surrounding tissues. The complication can be caused by various factors: not fully cured carious lesions, an acute form of periodontal inflammation, poor-quality materials, surgery performed not according to the Protocol, insufficient diagnosis of health conditions. The patient’s neglect of the dentist’s recommendations can lead to complications: poor hygiene, premature high chewing load, Smoking and drinking alcoholic beverages.
  • The structure of the bone. Because of the loose bone, even with its sufficient volume, the titanium root may not take root. To prevent this, it is necessary to further strengthen it with special material.
  • Violation of the process of osseointegration. The desire to save money, the choice of cheaper implants can cause the growth of scar tissue – fibrosis, not bone. This violates the naturalness of engraftment, which often leads to the loss of the structure.

At the end of the operation, the patient may experience swelling of the gums, pain, a slight rise in temperature, a slight bleeding – this is normal. After 5-10 days, the symptoms decrease, and then disappear completely. The probability that the root of titanium will not fuse with the bone is significantly low, this indicator is only 1-2%.
In what cases should you immediately consult a dentist?

The main symptoms that the implant does not take root:

  • bleeding;
  • redness and swelling of the gums that increase;
  • painful sensations when chewing;
  • mobility of the artificial structure;
  • unpleasant smell from the mouth;
  • acute pain and fever.

To make the operation comfortable, the rehabilitation period did not last long, and the titanium root took root, you need to tell the doctor about the existing diseases, possible health problems. The doctor will make an individual treatment plan, taking into account the reactions and characteristics of the body.

Dental implant did not take root: prevention of complications

The most common causes of implant rejection are Smoking and alcohol consumption, and neglect of oral hygiene. Complications after diseases can also cause the implant to fall out. Modern implantology has reached a high level: to restore the functionality of the dental system, titanium screws from foreign manufacturers are used (some give a lifetime warranty on their products), the latest technologies are used, and specialists are trained according to the Protocol. Therefore, the success rate of the procedure is 98-99%.
A lot depends on the doctor’s professionalism and personal experience, but the patient should tell the implantologist about the diseases, if there are any. The doctor will be able to change the implantation tactics in time, prescribe a number of therapeutic measures to stabilize the state of health. It is better to resolve all issues before surgery and do not wait for the titanium screw to fall out.
Prevention of complications:

  • Choose a reliable clinic and an experienced implantologist.
  • Do not save money, give preference to high-quality materials.
  • Follow all the doctor’s recommendations.
  • Hygiene of the oral cavity.

Is further implantation possible if the implant has not taken root? In most cases, re-implantation is possible. To do this, the existing prosthesis is removed, the condition of bone and soft tissues is stabilized, and you need to pass the required tests. It is advisable not to delay the operation, otherwise in 2-3 months the bone will begin to atrophy without receiving any load.

In Sobolevsky Dentistry, patients can not worry about the result. Our experienced doctors give a smile to everyone who comes to us for help. We recommend high-quality implants of well-known brands that will serve for many years.
