What if the dental implant falls out?

Several days or weeks following the implant treatment, we occasionally receive anxious calls from patients reporting that their dental implant has fallen off, the implant screw has come loose, or that they have even swallowed the screw. However, patients frequently aren't aware of exactly what dropped out.

What should i do if my dental implant fell out?

We, as dentists or office staff, need to find out exactly what came out when customers contact to report that their dental implant has fallen out. This is due to the fact that, more often than not, it is the upper attachment or abutment screw that has come loose rather than the actual implant. The chance of the dental implant itself falling out is extremely unlikely.However, the patient needs to be assessed and provided alternative, adequate solutions if the implant actually comes out.

Dental implants falling out is most commonly referred to by patients as the healing abutment screw.

Due to a variety of factors, this can occur, and patients are often asked to return to the dental office to have the screw reattached. There is no need to be alarmed if this screw comes loose, but if it does so more frequently, the crown treatment may become more challenging.

When a patient has an abutment screw that has fallen out, we often replace it with a new one by tightening it more and trash the old one (if the patient brought it in). Due to resistance from the bone or gum tissue and the fact that it is not well seated, the abutment screw may come loose.

We also suggest that patients refrain from chewing on that side of their mouth or eating anything particularly tough until the implant has fully healed. We urge the customer to visit us only a few days before their implant crown appointment if the healing abutment screw frequently comes off. During this appointment, we would do a quick laser cut surgery to remove some soft tissue to make room for the implant crown. The healed abutment screw has a tendency to come off in some individuals.

The dental implant definitely failed.

This situation is unusual, as was already mentioned. The healing abutment screw is simply what most patients confuse for the dental implant. You will feel differently in the area if the entire dental implant is removed, and some people may also notice that the hole or gap has grown larger. In contrast to the abutment screw, the falling dental implant resembles a screw with a few strings wrapped around it.

The abutment is a significantly more compact attachment that resembles a little stud earring or a screw. Additionally, the entire dental implant falling off may cause bleeding and be painful. In this unusual circumstance, the dentist may start you on antibiotics to stave against infections and may also administer healing drugs or possibly carry out a quick closure operation, depending on the situation. The dentist may advise such a patient to have a dental bridge if it is established that the patient's body is rejecting the implant in such circumstances.
