Why Do Dental Implants Fail?

Diagram of dental implants in Framingham The most common cause of dental implant failure is called “peri-implantitis.” This is when bacteria and infection damage the connective tissue from around the implant, weakening the supporting jawbone structure. In most cases, this is caused by poor oral hygiene and untreated gum disease. Other ways that dental implants can fail include injury, failed osseointegration, and certain medical conditions, like uncontrolled diabetes.
