Signs of Implant Failure
Dental implants are a permanent, long-lasting way to replace a number of damaged or missing teeth. Nearly 95 percent of implants are successful, but there’s still a chance of failure after placement or even years later. Early and late-term signs of implant failure include:
- Difficulty chewing or biting down
- Severe pain or discomfort
- Loose or shifting dental implant
- Gum swelling, inflammation, or recession
