Implants Done The Right Way!
Dental Implant Advocates specializes in the correction of failed or incorrectly placed dental implants. Dental Implants require a precise surgical procedure to inset the post and with every surgical procedure a risk is inherent. Dr. Sajadi has developed a career at addressing issues that have occurred with implants performed by other underqualified professionals. If you noticed that your problems fit some of the criteria below or if your big box dental center just won't correct their own mistakes don't hesitate to contact us. We specialize in the difficult cases.
Dental Implant Failures and Problems
Failure of the implant to fuse with the Jawbone
Occasionally an implant can fail because it doesn’t fuse with the jawbone. The period of time for complete integration into the bone can take weeks to months. Implant movement before full integration or after due to trauma or bone loss can cause failure of the implant. The implant can also fail because of improper placement which can result in the post receiving too much trauma during the chewing or biting motion and can cause loss of bone surrounding the implant.
Dr. Sajadi places a significant emphasis on this aspect of his procedures as the correct placement of the implant and potential placement of bone grafts will always provide the ideal conditions for a successful implant result.
Damage to Tissue or Nerves
When implants are placed too close to nerves, tingling and numbness can result. This is one of the most common problems caused by using a dentist who is not experienced in the placement of implants or hasn’t placed many implants during his/her career. Dr. Sajadi is not only extremely experienced in the correct placement of implants but teaches this aspect for the periodontal residents at University of Texas Dental School. Dr. Sajadi’s experience assures you the best possible outcome for your implant surgery.
Peri-implantitis is an infection that occurs from bacteria that is present at the time of your procedure or if the patient fails to keep up proper oral hygiene postoperatively. This condition can be similar to gum disease and causes inflammation around the implant and the surrounding bone tissue. During procedures within our clinics the strictest infection control procedures are utilized and patients’ are consistently given proper instructions on how to look after their new dental implants. All aspects of the post-operative process are carefully and personally overseen by Dr. Sajadi to ensure that your implant has the best possibly outcome. This condition can most often be treated if caught in the early stages and every post-operative instruction for all procedures can always be found in video form on our website just in case you may have forgotten his instructions or those nuisances have become hazy in the days following your surgery.
Although this is the most rare form of failure, because of the high grade of titanium that an implant is made from, it can occur if the implant is placed under too much stress or if you have one made from a cheaper material. When patients have elected to travel to countries such as Mexico or other South American countries for their procedure to cut costs, cheaper grade metals are often used for their implants which can be subject to critical failures.
In our clinics only the highest quality titanium alloys are purchased from the most reputable manufactures. These implants have undergone the most rigorous clinical testing to ensure that you have the confidence that your implant will last the rest of your lifetime.
