Are You Suffering From a Failed Dental Implant?


The amazing fact that our bodies are able to coexist with both native and foreign materials significantly expands our treatment options as New York dentists. We use dental implants that are made of titanium, because this artificial material fuses with bone so well that it’s almost impossible to remove. There are those extremely rare times when the biocompatibility of titanium does not prove successful, and the implant fails to fully integrate with the jawbone.

Causes of Dental Implant Failure

While dental implants are traditionally extremely successful tooth-replacement procedures, failure is possible. Some of the reasons for dental implant failure are:

  • Infection
  • Bone loss
  • Dental trauma
  • Lack integration with jawbone

Treatment Options

How we at Herald Square Dental treat implant failure depends on its cause.

Whatever the situation is that has brought you to our renowned dental practice, an evaluation by one of our expert implant dentists will provide the information needed to create a treatment plan for your particular case.
