Quite often the term “rejection” is used when dental implants fail. But is this the right way to describe the failure of a dental implant? It is very important to note that, in the case of dental implantology, there is no such thing as rejection…


When dental implants fail: rejection or lack of success?

Rejection refers to a reaction on the part of the immune system against something that it considers a foreign element (“non-self”): that could mean an organ, a tissue or an inorganic element. Dental implants are made of titanium, an extremely biocompatible metal with a high degree of purity.

Our organism does not consider this metal to be a foreign element, but, on the contrary, identifies its structure as part of “self”, and so it attaches itself firmly to the metal, setting off the process of osseointegration.

When osseointegration does not take place, meaning when the bone cells do not bond to the surface of the implant, this should not be thought of as rejection, but rather a lack of success. In such cases, the implant must be removed, and it can only be inserted anew after a certain period of time has passed.


Why do dental implants fail?

But what are the reasons for the failure of dental implants? One reason is definitely the use of low-cost titanium implants. Another cause of failure is inadequate training and preparation on the part of the surgeon carrying out the procedure.

To obtain an ideal result, the implant must be inserted by a well trained and thoroughly prepared professional, and the procedure must be carried out according to the highest standards. Finally, failure to maintain sterile conditions can also result in unsuccessful dental implants. For the operation to be a success, it is vitally important that the room used be well suited to the procedure, and that a sterile kit be employed to prevent the passage of germs.


How to increase the possibility of a successful dental implant

It is impossible to obtain reliable, high-performing dental implants by spending only a few hundred euro, because a job well done, resulting in an implant that lasts over time, must necessarily meet certain standards.

The quality of the product is a fundamental factor, but the surgeon must also be a skilled professional, the right equipment must be used during the insertion of the implant, sterility must be maintained throughout the procedure, and the members of the team performing the procedure must all be highly qualified.

So only by reducing diagnostic errors to a minimum, together with risks in the course of the procedure, all while attentively applying the required techniques can the percentage of implant success truly be increased. In other words, it is important to put yourself in the hands of a dental centre that can guarantee all that.
