Types of Dental Implant Complications – Common Problems with Dental Implants
Dental implants work. They are predictable and they can change a patient’s life. Today, more and more patients are choosing implants over traditional methods of tooth replacement, and most people will never have to wear dentures or bridges ever again. However, nothing in life is guaranteed and no medical procedure enjoys an absolute 100% success rate. Dental implants are no exception. For the past two decades the number of dental implants placed yearly has steadily increased.
Likewise, as these implants have now been in patients’ mouths for many years, problems are beginning to show up. Some problems are a result of the same expected normal biological issues that plague the teeth; other issues arise from improper treatment by dentists with varying levels of clinical experience. These problems being encountered need to be addressed with care and expertise.

Dental implant problems can be divided into 3 main categories:
- cosmetic or functional tooth-related problems
- problems with the bone holding the implant in the mouth
