There may be many reasons for the crown of your implant to become loose. These reasons can be a small crack caused by an incident or hard food, or even excessive pressure due to stress or changes in your bite.
If the crown of your implant has become loose, do not postpone your dental appointment. Collection of food bacteria in gaps created by a loose crown can lead to gum infections and even require the removal of the implant if the infection becomes severe.
We offer genuinely 24H emergency dental services. Our dentists and specialists can provide you with a comprehensive list of treatment options from one of our four centrally located London clinics. Call us on 020 8748 9365 to book your appointment.
Sadly, replacing a missing tooth with a dental implant doesn’t make gum infections any less likely. Despite the ceramic crown’s less likeability to collect plaque due to its smoother surface, bacteria can still enter between the tooth and the gum. As this bacteria can hardly be removed with brushing your teeth at home, an infection can happen, causing pain, dental abscess, or other issues.
If you can sense a foul smell from around the dental implant or notice that your gums are bleeding, book an appointment as soon as possible. In some cases, a simple professional cleaning from a dental hygienist will be sufficient to eradicate the infection. If more complex treatment is required, our oral surgeon and implantologist will advise you on your options so you can take an informed decision and treat the condition as soon as possible.
