If you've had a dental implant that has failed, it's important to have it removed as soon as possible. Leaving a failed implant in place can lead to serious infection and other complications.
The Dental Implant Removal Procedure
If you've had an implant for some time, it may be firmly attached to the surrounding bone. This can happen even if there's been damage due to infection or wear-and tear on your jawline - but don't worry! Dr. JJ Elbaz will take extra caution when removing dental implants, not only to minimize any discomfort caused, but also because he knows how important this step is towards regaining full function again following surgery
In many cases, patients receive a bone graft at the same time as they get their implant removed. Following surgery, you will have new material grafted into your natural tooth/bone that provides support for future implants and strengthens it, so this can happen again incase of any problems or issues down the road!
