Dental implant complications can silently affect your implant(s), and the surrounding teeth, bone and gum tissue, and usually do not present with pain, at first.
If left untreated, complications can result in significant damage to the surrounding structures, possibly requiring the need for surgical intervention, or ultimately result in the loss of the affected implant. Early recognition of implant complications is essential to reduce the damage caused by the complication and ensure that the affected implant can be saved.
The self-assessment below is meant to identify if you may be at risk of having a dental implant complication. The assessment is meant to be informative but does not substitute for a comprehensive periodontal evaluation by a periodontist to determine your true risk and condition. Please share the results of the assessment with your dentist or periodontist at your next visit.
