We invite you to contact us today for a consultation to learn more about what clinical factors or lifestyle factors may be contributing to your concern. As a skilled periodontist in Houston, Dr. Nicosia consistently provides the highest-level implant care available, and he’s here to deliver that same care to you!
Although the failure rate for a dental implant is low, an average of only 5 to 10 percent after ten years, we take each concern seriously. After all, a dental implant is considered the gold standard in tooth replacement, so we believe no patient should experience dental implant failure.
Considering that about five million implants are placed in the U.S. each year, there will occasionally be some procedures that require attention post-treatment, whether it’s a few weeks or months after the implant has been placed or several years. Because of this, dental implant failure is broken into two classifications: Early dental implant failure and late dental implant failure. The good news is that regardless of the stage of your failed dental implant, Dr. Nicosia may be able to prevent the condition from worsening.
The key to success in treating a failed dental implant is to seek treatment sooner rather than later. If you notice any of these symptoms near your dental implant, we invite you to visit us for a consultation and treatment plan:
Other symptoms such as numbness around the tooth or redness and swelling will vary depending on when your implant was placed.
Should you have questions or concerns about the health and viability of your dental implant, regardless of how long ago you received it, we’re here to help. Please give us a call or use our convenient online booking tool to schedule an appointment with our implant specialist near you.
