We love being able to see the positive difference that dental implants can make in the lives of our patients. However, we’re also all too aware that dental implant failure, while rare, is always a possibility. Fortunately, if quick enough action is taken, we can treat the problem and keep your smile safe.

Dental implant failure needs to be treated as soon as possible, so be sure to act immediately if you notice any of the symptoms listed below.

Sometimes removing your dental implants will be necessary, but you may be able to get new posts once any necessary treatments have been completed.
