Resolving Dental Implant Complications

Diagram cross-section of one placed dental implant flanked by two healthy teeth, provided by Westwood PeriodonticsAs the only solution that truly matches the look, feel, and function of a natural tooth, dental implants represent a significant advancement in restorative dentistry. However, complications can arise, especially when there is a surgical error. When complications occur, correcting them requires a high level of skill whicih only a seasoned periodontist can accomplish.

Led by Dr. Gupta, one of the few board-certified dental implant surgeons in New Jersey, we here at Westwood Periodontics specialize in correcting even the most challenging implant complications. Our goal is to provide solutions that ensure the long-term oral health of our patients and give them the smile they’ve always wanted.

Peri-Implantitis and Infection Control

Peri-implantitis, a condition similar to gum disease, is a common complication where inflammation and infection affect the gums and bone surrounding an implant. If left untreated, it can lead to bone loss and implant failure.

Dr. Gupta, and her experienced team, employ advanced diagnostic and treatment methods that manage peri-implantitis safely, quickly, and effectively. This includes comprehensive cleaning techniques, targeted antibiotic therapy, and, if necessary, surgical intervention to regenerate lost bone and gum tissue. Our approach not only resolves the infection but also focuses on preventing recurrence, safeguarding the longevity of the implant and surrounding oral structures.

Improper Implant Positioning and Aesthetic Corrections

Sometimes, dental implants are placed in positions that are not ideal, either functionally or esthetically. This can lead to issues with biting, speech, and the overall appearance of your smile. With expertise in dental implants, smile esthetics, and healthy occlusion (contact between teeth), Dr. Gupta is highly qualified to address improper placements.

Our office utilizes state-of-the-art imaging and surgical techniques to reposition or replace a dental implant. This allows us to improve the function and esthetics restoration. This highly-skilled approach not only enhances your smile but also ensures a more harmonious and improved long-term oral health.

Osseointegration Failures and Bone Grafting

Successful dental implants rely on osseointegration, a process in which the implant fuses with the underlying bone to create a lasting foundation for the restoration. In cases where this process fails, often due to insufficient bone density or surgical error, our practice offers advanced bone grafting techniques to correct any problem.

Dr. Gupta's expertise in bone anatomy and regenerative procedures allows us to successfully rebuild the jawbone, a crucial component to any implant’s success. This process also helps maintain the integrity of your facial structure, preventing further bone loss and preserving your overall oral health.
