Can Dental Implants Be Replaced?

“At the Perfect Smile, we thoroughly assess and evaluate each patient, following strict protocols, before undergoing dental implant surgery to ensure longevity and success.” Dr Gurs Sehmi

Single to Full Mouth Implants

Ideally, dental implants are not a type of treatment that should be performed with the thought of replacement in the future.

Since it is a surgical procedure that is invasive and is carried out within the jaw bone, we tend to treatment plan with the intention of it lasting a lifetime through careful attention.

However, the top part of the connection can easily be replaced should chips in it or a change of colour is required. But the actual dental implant within the bone was not intended to be replaced.

We Are Proud to Have the Latest Technology and Equipment at Our Practice

Replacing an implant: we can analyse what caused the implant to fail when bonding with the jaw and offer various treatments options in replacing it.

Several situations may accelerate the deterioration and thus require the dental implant to be replaced sooner rather than later. Find out more.

The primary reason would be poor oral hygiene and inadequate visits after placement, thus leading to infection.

Infected dental implants are like gum disease that can detach the gum and bone from the implant, thus causing it to loosen up. Contact us today.

When this happens, the implant can no longer support the teeth, and there is a risk of further infection. In this situation, the implant dentist may advise ” extracting” the dental implant depending on how advanced the deterioration is. Your dentist will look into your options if a new implant is required.

Ways of Increasing the Likelihood of Dental Implants to Last a Lifetime:

  • Treatment Planning using 3D digital analysis, bite analysis, foundational assessment, radiographs (X-rays) and a CT scanner. Correct planning in advance and inspection of any risk factors beforehand is the key to a successful treatment outcome. Our experienced implant dentists have the highest protocols that they follow to ensure that everything has been thoroughly investigated and planned. Also, that you have been provided with the most suitable and appropriate treatment choices that ensure a successful long-term solution, see options.
  • Use of CT Guided Digital Surgery. This is when a digital scanner is used in combination with a CT scanner to create a 3D guide plane that facilitates the accurate positioning of the implant in the jawbone.
  • Provide enough healing time to ensure osseointegration of the bone to the implant. Our implant dentists wait to see digital and radiographic evidence to provide a proper connection between the interface of the titanium dental implant and the patient’s bone tissue. Only then do we proceed with creating a permanent porcelain tooth on top of the implant. Traditional dental implants are also not load-bearing in these early days soon after surgery, giving the excellent opportunity of the body to heal.
  • We evaluate any risk factors beforehand to ensure that we give the dental implant treatment every opportunity to work and be effective. Also, if there are any predisposing factors such as smoking, we address these things before considering implant treatment.
  • Advice and instructions are necessary to maintain the health of your mouth and dental implants. A regular appointment with the hygienist and dentist can ensure that your treatment is as successful as possible.

At The Perfect Smile, we understand that patients may be naturally nervous when thinking of undergoing dental implant surgery.

We want to reassure you that the dental implant treatment is not painful due to the proper use of local anaesthetics to numb the bone and gum deeply.

We can also use sedation techniques that also contribute to no pain or discomfort. More.

Treatment Plan
  • Step 1: We will start the process with a highly detailed and thorough comprehensive examination and assessment. We will then construct a customised treatment plan and design your implant treatment.
  • Step 2: An implantologist surgically places your new implant(s) in your mouth.
  • Step 3: We will assess your healing on this review appointment and make sure everything is going as planned.
  • Step 4: The dentist records and impressions to construct the implant’s top part (post and crown).
  • Step 5: The dentist will fit the final part of the implant (post and crown).
  • Step 6: Your final appointment allows you to have any further refining cosmetic enhancements or minor adjustments.


Fast Process

  • Minimal appointments: Unlike traditional dental implant surgery, you will need fewer appointments
  • No lengthy treatment time: The healing time is fast and effective, though individual to each person.
Bone Quality
  • When you lose a tooth, the surrounding bone that holds the tooth in place will diminish in height, width, and volume. This may affect the immediate and final appearance of the gum tissue in this area and possibly the surrounding teeth.
  • The larger the width of bone or the height of the bone, the wider and longer implant can be. A wider and longer implant increases implant stability and thus success. We assess the bone height and width by taking digital radiographs or by taking a CT Scan. More.

Implant Costs

The price of a dental implant can depend on whether any further treatments are needed to make sure your implant is a success.

    Successful Dental Implants Can Last a Lifetime

    Once the implant has fused with your jawbone and tissues, the artificial titanium implant acts as an ordinary root.

    When we implant a titanium implant into the jawbone, it becomes part of your oral foundation.

    This offers several health benefits that include preventing any bone loss whilst supporting the jawbone structure and reducing the risk of gum disease. More.
