Dental implant revision surgery can fix problems associated with dental implants following dental implant surgery. There are four common dental implant complications that can result in having to undergo dental implant revision: inflammation or infection around the dental implant, jawbone concerns, implant failure, and cosmetic-related difficulties. Inflammation or infection can affect the gum tissue surrounding the dental implant, which can lead to bone loss and cause the dental implant to loosen. Jawbone concerns and implant failure occur when the dental implants do not properly bond or heal to the jawbone and gumline during the healing process, resulting in an unsecure foundation for your new teeth. Cosmetic complications include improper placement of dental implants, un-natural implant appearance, receding gums, or implants inserted at the wrong angle leading to discomfort or un-natural positioning within the mouth. Dental implant revision surgery can be performed to resolve these complications and achieve a natural, long-lasting smile restoration.
Dental implant revision surgery restores the function or appearance of dental implants that had previously been placed. Dental implant revision surgery is performed to resolve any complications patients are experiencing following dental implant surgery. There are a variety of complications patients may experience after dental implant surgery, though complications are typically uncommon. Based on what each patient is experiencing, the dental implant revision surgery will be tailored to each patient’s needs in order to restore their smile and eliminate the problem. Dr. Mark and his surgical team will examine the dental implants to determine the problem and evaluate what steps need to be taken for each patient’s dental implant revision surgery.
There are many benefits to receiving dental implant revision surgery for both functional and aesthetic reasons. Dental implant revision surgery can result in stronger, healthier, and more durable dental implants that have been reinforced to last longer and perform better than before. This ensures that your dental implants will form a stronger bond between the implant and jawbone, leading to better functionality. Some patients choose to replace old titanium implants with modern day ceramic implants for this reason, and due to titanium implants causing discoloration over time. Dental implant revision surgery can also correct misaligned implant placements, to relieve discomfort and create a more aesthetic and natural smile. Following your dental implant revision surgery, there will be a reduced chance of any future complications with your dental implants after resolving the problem. Overall, dental implant revision surgery provides patients with a more reliable and secure dental implant placement than before.

Dental implant revision surgery is beneficial for patients who have previously had dental implants placed. Some of the most ideal candidates would be experiencing the following concerns: the implants have shifted or loosened from the implant site, pain, irritation or numbness near the implant site, the gums have begun to recede from the implant site, there has been significant bone loss surrounding the implants since having dental implant surgery, sinus problems, and aesthetic concerns such as improper positioning, discomfort from misaligned insertion of dental implants, and more. Patients who have previously received titanium implants are also ideal candidates for dental implant revision surgery, as they can now replace their old titanium implants with the modern day ceramic implant instead.
