The healing process after a dental implant surgery varies from one person to another. In some cases, a dental implant can become loose from its designated position. When this occurs, the first step is to have it removed.
Reason for Dental Implant Failure
The main and the most common reason for a dental implant becoming loose is its failure to integrate with the underlying bone in the oral cavity. Do not wait for the implant to settle into its place in the gums because this could mean that further bone damage can occur.
For a dental implant to be successful, it needs to be incorporated as part of the normal bones found under the gums, just like in a normal tooth.
