The dentist should assess the general health condition of the patient prior to implant treatment. As long as a dental implant is inserted properly, non-integration is very unlikely to occur. The failure rate is around 1%-2%. The failure often occurs within the first 3 months following insertion of an implant.
In such cases, the dental implant is removed by a procedure that is as easy as tooth extraction, and a relatively thicker dental implant can be inserted if the bone loss is only minor. If the bone loss is significant, then some time will be allowed for bone healing, and a new dental implant can be inserted. Failing this, then a conventional denture can be used.
