After any dental procedure, you’re bound to have a lot of questions. Despite your dental professional answering them for you and giving you all of the information they think you will need, there are some problems that slip through cracks. When something doesn’t look or feel right your instinct may be to panic, but it’s important that you contact your dental professional’s office and schedule an appointment.

Dental implants are a great way to hide missing teeth and perfect your smile. That being said, sometimes there are things that are out of the ordinary that occur. They make look or feel different than they did after your procedure or maybe they don’t match what you believed they would look like. Either way, there are occasional problems that arise with implants. One of them being problems with the screw.

If you feel the screw in your dental implant the best thing you can do is schedule an appointment with your prosthodontist. They will likely have a dental CT scan done so they can see exactly what is happening. This image will show them where the implant is and give them an indication if there are any issues.

Sometimes dental implants fail, so if you feel a screw in your new implant, it’s natural to be concerned.

This is especially helpful in cases where patients have fragile bones or have had implants fail in the past.
