Port St Lucie Dental Implants | Problems with Dental Implants

Poor oral hygiene and not following your dentist’s instructions on how to properly maintain your dental implants could lead to serious risks and implant failure. Port St Lucie dental implants have the power and potential to dramatically improve your smile, boost your self-confidence, and improve your quality of life. Dental implants have become the highest standard in terms of teeth replacement, and it has revolutionized the dental industry for decades now. This teeth replacement may have a high success rate, but keep in mind that no surgical procedure is completely risk-free.

Possible Problems with Dental Implants

To reduce the risk associated with dental implants, choose a leading cosmetic dentist or oral surgeon with an outstanding team to perform the procedure. The quality of your dental work also depends on the dentist performing the dental implant placement. Below are the possible problems that may arise if you don’t pay attention to your oral hygiene habits or skipping the dentist’s advice.

  • Higher risk of fracture if you tend to clench or grind your teeth.
  • Nerve damage can occur before, during or after implant placement. When this happens, your dental implant has to be completely removed to treat the problem.
  • Sinus damage is a potential risk especially if you’re getting implants in your upper row of teeth. A sinus augmentation procedure may be required to slightly move your sinus out of the way to make room for your implant. If you have an existing sinus problem, you must let your dentist know.
  • Gum Recession could happen when implants are improperly positioned. Gum recessions also take place when there’s not enough bone or gum to support the implant.

What You Can Do to Avoid Potential Problems with Dental Implants

There are lifestyle choices, habits, and health conditions that may hinder your body’s ability to heal. Cancer, AIDS, diabetes, or any other systemic conditions could cause implant failure. Untreated gum disease is also a potential risk as well. Practice good oral hygiene habits and avoid smoking to ensure the success of your dental implants.
