What causes dental implants to fail is simply not known, but patients still are concerned about the possibility of dental implant failure. For this reason we will take a look at some possible causes of dental implant failure and what you can do to help prevent it. Here at the Marylebone Implant Centre, our success of dental implants are extremely high. We are so successful that we offer a guarantee on our dental implant work. Still, though, there is the possibility that a dental implant rejection can happen. One possible reason for dental implant failure could be due to bacteria being present when the implant was set in place. If bacteria are present on the bone structure or on the gum lines where the implant was placed, the possibility of an infection setting in would be increased. The gums could become inflamed where the implant was placed which would adversely affect the healing process which in turn would lead to rejection. Another possibility could be the fact that the implants could be contaminated from the manufacturer. Sometimes dental clinics and facilities located outside the UK may use inferior, cheap materials to help offset the cost of the implants. The success rate of these clinics abroad may be something to consider when thinking about where you would want to get your dental implants. Here at Marylebone Implant Centre, we use the highest standard implants with state-of-the-art technology. Contact us today if you have any questions or concerns about dental implant failure.
