Don’t Lose Your Dental Implants!

Preserve Your New Smile

As a tooth replacement method, dental implants are unmatched. They look, feel, and function just like natural teeth. Nothing does a better job of restoring your quality of life or self-confidence. They also boast a success rate of 98%! However, under certain circumstances, dental implants may still fail. Prior failed grafting procedures, bad extractions, bad bridgework, and improper placement are potential factors. Peri-implantitis is the leading cause. Fortunately, you can avoid this condition! If you have failing dental implants in Flower Mound and Denton, TX, come to the experts at the Texas Center for Oral Surgery and Dental Implants.

We know implants. In fact, we’ve placed 2,000 of them and counting. As board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeons, we’re dental implant specialists, with years of specialty training beyond dental school. General dentists can offer dental implant care, but they lack the surgical background that enables us to handle the most complex cases. We’re trained for them. If you’ve had dental implant complications—including peri-implantitis—we can help restore and protect your smile for many years to come.

Reversing Peri-Implantitis

Peri-implantitis is not due to the implants themselves. It typically starts as an infection in the surrounding gums. Left untreated, peri-implantitis can cause your dental implants to fall out and your jawbone to deteriorate. We begin treatment by removing all signs of infection from the area. 

If you’ve reached an advanced stage of peri-implantitis, we’ll attempt to save the dental implants by thoroughly eliminating bacteria beneath the gumline and also completely removing any infected tissues. We can then rebuild the area with bone grafting and other treatments, as necessary, to restore your failing dental implants.
