Can a loose dental implant be fixed?

Dental implants in Armidale typically enjoy a high success rate with no added maintenance, but if for some reason your dental implant feels loose or compromised, contact our dental clinic for an appointment as soon as possible.

How Does A Dental Implant Become Loose?

Reasons a dental implant can loosen include trauma, grinding and clenching your teeth, or using your implant for an unintended purpose like opening bottles or twisting off caps.

In some cases, if you are not brushing and flossing regularly and visiting your Armidale dentist on time for exams and teeth cleans, you may have an oral health issue that is compromising your implant—periodontal disease, for example.

Remember, the same bad habits that threaten your natural teeth also put your dental implant and other prosthetics at risk.

Fortunately, in most cases, we can fix your loose implant—barring advanced gum disease. However, it is crucial to arrange an exam with our dentist at the first signs of trouble.
