Dr. Andrew Mortensen of Fountain Valley, CA is here blogging today to explain reasons that dental implants may have failed you in the past and assures his patients of his professional and precise dental implant practice and success. Now, considering people need dental implants as a result of severe dental and oral issues, there is a chance that they may not work for certain patients. If you experienced a failed dental implant procedure, here at Andrew Mortensen DDS Inc, we can help you get it right this time.
First of all, if you have attempted a dental implant procedure prior to reading this and it failed, you must wait a given amount of time for your mouth and jaw to heal from the unsuccessful procedure. Normally a patient may need to wait a year or longer to let the oral system recover and regain strength to be able to endure the process yet again.
There are a few reasons that the dental implants were not successful: insufficient bone density, sinus issues, or you may have developed peri- implantitis.
If your original doctor approved you for dental implants but you did not have the sufficient strength or structure in your jaw to endure the process, this can be an easy fix. We will schedule for a bone graft procedure, in which we will perform a bone tissue transplant by replacing the damaged or fractured osseous tissue with new and healthy bone. Depending on the area and amount of damage done to the jaw, this procedure can take anywhere from an hour up to 4 hours to complete. Although this process can significantly add to the duration of healing, it is vital to the dental implant success.
If you are trying to place dental implants in the upper row of the mouth, a patient’s sinuses can complicate the process easily. The upper layer of teeth in the mouth are close to the vicinity of the sinuses which can inflame the teeth and gums and as the dangerous bacteria multiply and infect these areas; which makes it harder to complete the dental implant procedure. With sinus issues the patient’s oral cavity is highly prone to decay and infection throughout the actual procedure, as well as the healing process which can prevent the dental implants from being successful.
Peri- implantitis is known as the destruction of soft and hard tissue surrounding the dental implants, but most people are not aware that this can be developed even during the procedure itself. If the patient has poor oral hygiene and health, the bacteria presents itself while the doctor is laying in the dental implants; as well as when the patient is recovering from the procedure. Even the dental cement the doctor uses can slip into and onto the gums and cause more decay. Most likely if you have developed peri- implantitis, you had to have the dental implants removed completely and will have to start over.
At Andrew Mortensen DDS Inc. we have been extremely successful in performing dental implants on patients that have had failures the first time. We understand how complicated and draining the processes and healing can be over time, but we are here to make sure that you are comfortable every step of the way. We want you to get your money’s worth and be able to enjoy a healthy dental future for years to come with dental implants.
