Answering Your Questions About Dental Implant Repair

Smiling woman

Does your dental implant feel or look differently than it once did? Although very rare, dental implant problems should be addressed right away. Dental implants carry a remarkable success rate of over 98%. However, they are still subject to failure or damage from time to time. When it comes to seeking dental implant repair, the sooner the better!

What are common dental implant problems?

The majority of dental implant repairs involve repairing the crown (or prosthetic tooth portion) of the implant. This may involve a crack or break in the crown. Patients may also feel that their implant is loose or not as stable.

How do dental implants become loose?

One reason for a loose dental implant can be traced back to osseointegration failure. Osseointegration refers to the process of the titanium implant post fusing to the surrounding jaw bone in the weeks and months following implant surgery. If osseointegration never fully took place, your implant may not have established a secure foundation. In addition, the development of gum disease or infection can destroy the underlying bone and cause the implant to loosen.

What does dental implant repair involve?

This is based on which portion of the implant needs restoration. A crown that is damaged or fallen off can be more easily and quickly repaired. Make sure to bring the crown with you if it has fallen off. In many cases, we can bond the crown back to the abutment piece or repair the fracture while it is still in your mouth. Even if the crown needs to be fully replaced, the treatment process is simple and straightforward, as we will already have your crown measurements and fabrication guidelines.

If your problem resides with the implant itself, the repair process can be much more extensive, as the implant may need to be removed and replaced entirely. Some patients may also require an additional procedure of bone grafting if lack of bone density caused the implant to lose stability. The procedure steps and recovery will be much like it was when you originally got your implant placed. Again, implant failure is quite rare.

  • Dr. Morris is an excellent dentist. Her ability to relate to her patients makes her a stand-out amongst those in her profession. She practices dentistry with superior technique and care. Her staff is friendly, helpful, and accommodating. I feel she hires only the best! One special mention: I suffer from panic attacks at times- along with claustrophobia. Dr. Morris is the first dentist I have ever had who helped calm my fears. Thus, my experience exceeded expectations! Great service!

  • Going to a new dentist can be stressful, but this experience was the BEST I have ever had. Dr. Morris and Dr. Fields are a cut above the rest, and they offer state of the art technology, and an environment that takes the sting out of going to the dentist for sure. Conveniently located in Roswell, the staff is caring, patient-focused, and efficient. I've never smiled so much at a dentist's office! I highly recommend friends and family making their next visit to this dentist. Pain free!!!!

  • Definitely would recommend Dr. Morris to anyone. She has been my dentist for over 8 years! Dr. Morris is extremely personable and is serious about the completing the best care possible. Great established dental team! Very accommodating to your schedule.

  • Great and very educational experience. Compared to my last two dentists this experience blows them both out of the water. The staff is very friendly, and very helpful. I had to go in for a total of four visits a few weeks apart from each other. They made me feel very comfortable the entire time and kept making sure I was pleased. Getting a deep cleaning went very smoothly. It was also brought to my attention that the way I was flossing was incorrect. And have since changed methods. I worked specifically with Dr. Morris. She was very nice, and took the time to explain things. Which is a huge plus for me. Dr. Morris and the staff members worked effortlessly together. I was comfortable enough to sit back and relax, strangely enough, while having cavities drilled and fillings put in. Billing and scheduling appointments, as well as follow up for confirmation of upcoming appointments was very easy. I will say my favorite part of the experience was how friendly of an environment the staff has created. That alone is deserving of a 5 star review, and the rest is honestly icing on the cake. I highly recommend this practice on all fronts and will continue using them!

  • I transferred from a long-term and very good relationship with my former dentist because of a move, and I was a little apprehensive about a new dentist. Dr. Morris has been great. She is friendly, patient-concerned and the office is new, comfortable and clean. Everyone seems to enjoy working there. I feel like I'm in good hands!

  • Dr. Morris and her staff are very professional. Additionally, she as well as her staff have an excellent "bedside manner." The office is new and well equipped. If one has an appointment and an earlier one opens up, Dr. Morris offers it to her patients as she did with my last appointment.

  • I have never met a staff so nice and charming. This staff will make you feel comfortable and relaxed in Dr. Morris's Spa like office and everyone is professional and approachable too. Andrea R. explained the process of my appointment and procedures and is definitely a highly-educated and thorough dental hygenist -- SHE IS A ROCKSTAR. I'm so glad that Dr. Morris and her dental team have been my "go-to" for the last 5 years, and I wont be going anywhere else! Overall - A++ Dr. Morris...highly recommended to my family and friends!!!

  • I've been a patient of Dr. Mitzi Morris for many years, and recommend her without reservation. The office is modern. clean and spacious. The staff has always been welcoming and very helpful. And the women who work for her as dental technicians are fantastic; they do a professional and effective deep cleaning, but with a careful, gentle touch. It is clear to me that Dr. Morris reads her professional journals and upgrades her practice to stay very current with the latest best practices in dentistry. (I have had some dentists who stopped updating their practices after leaving dental school!) With Dr. Morris you can count on receiving the very latest dental technology. Her prices are very fair, and I have never been surprised by an unexpected cost or had problems with insurance not covering services rendered.
