What can I do if an implant does not work?
If an implant does not achieve or cannot maintain an integration with the surrounding bone it will eventually become loose and no longer be able to support replacement teeth. Commonly the failing implant causes no discomfort and if there are enough remaining, it may not be necessary to replace it at all.
Failures may not always be easy to deal with and if you embark upon this type of treatment you have to be prepared to deal with this possibility, however small. At Smilemakers we achieve failure rates of less than 1% and will replace any implant failing within a year free of charge. Fortunately, due to the rigorous procedures we follow with our dental implants, this occurrence is very rare.
