The answer to this question is - yes. With that said, the only time you would want or need to remove your tooth implant is if it has failed.
Some indications of a failing dental implant are:
- Intense pain or discomfort
- An implant tooth that feels loose or shifts during chewing
- Gums or soft tissues swelling around the implant tooth
- Problems or pain when biting or chewing
- Recession of the gums around the implant
Removing Dental Implants
Dental implants in Greeley, CO are a highly successful treatment with a 95 percent success rate. However, in the rare case of an infection or your bone being unable to integrate with your implant, we can remove it.
Dr. Stewart and Dr. Buffington spend a lot of time with our patients prior to implant treatment, ensuring that they are good candidates for the procedure.
They do this by taking x-rays to measure and confirm adequate bone levels and by performing a thorough examination to ensure good dental health as well as general health. Taking these measures helps our patients have successful outcomes, and also a comfortable and efficient experience throughout their implant treatment.
If you should need an implant removed due to failure, our Greeley dentists work closely with you to determine alternative options for restoring your lost tooth. Our goal is to maintain both your dental health and your beautiful smile.
