Tooth implant bone loss

Common Questions and Answers about Tooth implant bone loss

teeth

Avatar n tn I know that bone loss can occur when a tooth is extracted, and the implant is supposed to prevent such bone loss from occurring, but will there be any bone loss at all? I am really concerned because I am so young and don't want my facial appearance to change. Thank you so much.
Avatar f tn The surgery worked best on my lower teeth, slowing down the bone loss significantly and rebuilding bone/tooth connection (that's what the gortex is for. That type of surgery is even more advanced now, I think). It didn't have as much success with my more advanced upper teeth. You have to identify all compromised teeth and undergo aggressive treatment (surgery, root planing..), and then take very good care of your teeth and gums for the rest of your life.
Avatar m tn any time after that, I might have bone loss. and he recommend to do the implant crown after 5 month which is Sept. if OI got delayed, then what is the good time to do the implant crown? Octor? Thanks.
Avatar m tn so if i have bone loss and need bone graft can implantologist still do immediate implant ?
Avatar n tn 53yo healthy male #31 is loose. #30 is a dental implant/crown. December '06 had #32 surgically removed because of severe nerve pain. Neither surgeon nor general dentist could determine exact cause. Since having #32 removed no more severe nerve pain. Retrospectively, I think what was happening is that #31 has been loose for awhile and at times would cause the nearby tissues to swell and pressure #32 to press on nerve.
Avatar n tn Following the extraction, I had a great loss of bone (I can provide x-rays) and discomfort that never went away. The adjacent premolar was also missing. In Nov 2005, a dental implant was put into place but oddly the oral surgeon chose to put it angled from the molar. The discomfort I had before increased with the implant so that I thought of removing the implant.
Avatar n tn Today I went to the endodontist for the root canal, and he looked at the X-rays and said the tooth is hopeless. He said he could tell this from bone loss above the gum line evident on the X-ray. (The tooth is #13.) So he referred me to an oral surgeon. However, the two dentists I saw this week both said you can't really know if the tooth is hopeless without drilling inside it and visually inspecting where the crack ends. Now I don't know what to do: 1.
Avatar n tn t know your age or the reason you got implants, but many receive them due to periodontal disease with resulting bone loss. Bone grafts alone would not be enough to keep healthy gums far enough down to cover many implants so the gumline recedes back exposing the threads. Just like it would the root of a natural tooth. That said, there are ways to correct it. You can have a gum transplant graft. It is a surgical procedure, but those that have had it say it's not too bad.
Avatar f tn Also, he says that an implant will cause no future disintegration (my word) of the jaw bone - whereas a bridge can result in some loss of jaw bone. I am vacillating between the two - but am needing to decide. Any advice?
762162 tn?1234331805 Should I get a second opinion? Is there another alternative to replacing a missing tooth without implant? and is teeth replaced necessary?? why ?? Please let me know what can i do now..
Avatar n tn Paid $3500, for root canal treatment that seeminly went well but have now had tooth removed due to perforation of jaw bone by post (extensive bone loss). Dentist assured me was not my fault as I did nothing wrong nor did he ??????????
Avatar n tn My insurance also covers part of the cost of implants and the #7 tooth is already protruding and twisted -- would I be better off just having it extracted and then having an implant after the bone graft? Last question -- if I have the tooth extracted, is there any period of time that I would have to go without a temporary tooth/plate in that area?
Avatar m tn From the x-ray of my implant, I found that my implant is too close to tooth #9 and the bone in between my implant and tooth #9 not grow much to integrate with the implant. I could also see the implant through my front gum, the gray color show off. I deeply worried and began to consult with some oral surgeons and some implant specialist. When they see the x-ray, all their first reaction is: This implant is not good. So, I took a CT Scan to see the implant 3-dimension.
Avatar n tn Hi, Its hard to tell from your description what is going on and especially without a photo. You say there's a 'pocket inside my mouth which traps food particles when I eat. Sort of like a channel or canal that wasn't there before.' I can only think that if the implant was put in via the mouth and afterwards the pocket inside your lower lip (vestibule) is much lower, then it may be that you need some more surgery to reattach the mentalis.

Avatar n tn The dentist pulled the loose baby tooth,sculpted the gum and inserted a dental implant. She had no facial swelling, but her gum swelled around the teeth on either side of the implanted tooth. Salt water brought the swelling down.2wks.later sucures are removed.7 days later she feels a lump high above gum above implant,yellow the size of a pea. dentist puts her on antibiotics and we go to his office. He drains the pus and injects more antibiotics into the site.
Avatar n tn The periodontist noticed some bone loss, and did an Osteoplasty on the tooth to fill in some bone. A year after the Osteoplasy, I noticed a bubble + pain + numbness again, went back to the Periodontist, he said it might just be some food particle getting into my gum pocket, and suggested that I do a few sessions of root planning. Did that. Six months later (last week), I went to another Periodontist to get a second opinion.
Avatar m tn And, second, the tooth behind will try to drift forward to close the gap. This can also cause loss of that tooth. Please go and be evaluated for either of those two conditions and see what is your best course of treatment. An implant would solve both problems providing you have enough bone to support one. Hope this helps.
7510441 tn?1391467769 But always keep an eye on the bone levels of the jaw because a crack in the area can cause irritation to the jaw bone and result in bone loss. If that occurs, placing an implant becomes more challenging later on.
6465557 tn?1382475493 Dental implants is one of the most important restorative procedure in modern dentistry.Maintenance of bone after tooth loss to improve or maintain facial aesthetics and improved function is taken care of by dental implant. Implant Restoration lasts longer and are more durable and so may be the only logical choice for the restoration of all necessary functionality of the teeth and supporting structure.
