What are possible complications of dental implants?

One of the most common complications of dental implants is a lack of integration or implant failure. Many factors can contribute to the implant failure, most important of which is overloading and early loading of a freshly placed implant. You must inquire with your dentist as to when and how you can start using your new implanted teeth. A deviation from that instruction usually results in implant failure.

A second common complication of implant placement is infection at the site of surgery. It is extremely important to take the antibiotics and other instructions that your dentist gives for surgery.

A third common complication of dental implants is bone loss and early failure. This is usually caused by poor restoration care following the restoration of the implants. Again, proper hygiene of the implant restorations according to your dentist’s instructions are paramount in preventing this complication.
