Can dental implants be rejected?

Drs. David Peck, Pablo Velastegui, and Mahmoud Homsi of Taylor Street Dental work with patients to help them choose the most effective treatments for their needs. For individuals in the Springfield, MA area, tooth replacement is highly recommended after an adult tooth has been extracted or lost. To achieve restoration, many patients find that dental implants are an exciting option!

What is a dental implant?

The team of Taylor Street Dental describe the dental implant as a permanent artificial tooth root used to replace one or more teeth. This restoration is utilized in a way that is allows patients to replace a single tooth, several teeth, or all the teeth in the dental arch. This versatility, and the permanency of dental implants, is part of what makes them so popular. Our team of professionals encourage patients to ask about dental implants and determine if they are a candidate. Dental implants require sufficient bone structure of the jaw to ensure a successful procedure.

Can dental implants be rejected?

Though dental implants are made of a biocompatible metal called titanium, there is a small chance of rejection. However, when dentists thoroughly evaluate patients to ensure they are a good candidate, they are significantly reducing this risk. Additionally, patients who do not care properly for their smile may also be at risk of experiencing dental implant rejection if they deal with bone resorption. Not only is it best to take x-rays to visualize the bone available for a dental implant before placement, but patients should visit their dentist regularly for continued evaluations to spot any early signs of rejection as soon as possible to address it appropriately.

Concerned about the success of placing dental implants?

Before obtaining implants, the dental team at Taylor Street Dental needs to examine and assess a patient to determine if they are a good candidate.
