Dental implant complications

Friday, January 16, 2015
Hi. I'm James Courey. I'm a prosthodontist and the founder of Specialized Dentistry of New Jersey in Manalapan.

Why Choose A Prosthodontist

I'd like to speak about dental implant complications. Dental implants work! They're predictable and can change a patient's life. More and more patients are choosing implants over traditional methods of tooth replacement. Most people will never again have to wear dentures or bridges.

However, nothing in life is guaranteed. No medical procedure has a 100% success rate. Dental implants are no exception. For the past two decades, the number of implants placed yearly has increased steadily.

At the same time, implants that have been in patient's mouths for many years are beginning to present problems. Some are a result of the same issues that affect natural teeth. Others are due to improper treatment by dentists with varying levels of clinical experience.

These problems need to be addressed with care and expertise. Dental implant problems can be divided into three main categories.

1: Cosmetic or functional tooth related problems.

2: Problems with the bone holding the implant in the mouth.

3: Problems with the gum covering the implant and the tooth.

These problems can vary in severity and often present complex issues that require treatment by a dental team. Each with a unique set of skills and knowledge beyond that of most clinicians placing implants today.

Our Specialized Dentistry of New Jersey specialists are leaders in the treatment of dental implant problems. We have years of advanced specialty training in implant dentistry and we continue to lead the way as teachers and educators in the field.
