Dental implants represent those cosmetic dentistry procedures which will offer the patient a new set of teeth which are perfectly functional, and which look and feel like the natural teeth.
Given the fact that today’s technology is extremely advanced, the complications that surface from dental implant procedures are quite few.
One of the most important “requirements” in order for the dental implant to be a success is that the patient must have enough healthy bone tissue.
The dental implant needs to bond correctly with this bone tissue, and this process is known as osseointegration within the jaw bone.
When this process fails, and the dental implant cannot bond well with the jaw bone, there might arise a few complications. One of the complications is the dental implant infection.
This usually happens during the dental implant process, and it happens mainly due to the poor oral hygiene regimen of the patient. Thus, the dental implant is rejected by the organism, and this procedure cannot be performed correctly on the respective patient.
Then, another complication might surface if the patient does no have enough healthy bone tissue within the jaw. This means that the dental implant cannot bond correctly. In such cases bone grafting might be needed during the surgery, and then the patient will not struggle anymore with such complications.
The overall health of a patient also plays a major role in how the dental implant will be accepted or rejected by he organism. Patients struggling with such chronic diseases as high blood pressure, diabetes or cancerous diseases might go through several complications throughout the dental implant process.
When the blood supply of an organism is being slowed down because of certain diseases, the bone cannot grow correctly, and thus the patient will be exposed to all kinds of complications.
Yet another quite big problem appears when the dental implant crown is loaded immediately over the implant that is within the jaw. Thus, quite a big pressure is put on the implant within, and the osseointegration process cannot develop naturally and slowly as it should.
When any of the abovementioned complications arise, an experienced dental professional will always wait for the certain area to heal properly. Only after this happens, will he/ she proceed to starting with the procedure again. Throughout the dental implant process, it is important to mention that smoking can also cause a lot of complications.
