Loose / mobile dental implants

When the dentist is faced with a mobile dental implant, a complete examination of the dental implant and its components should be undertaken. Mobility could be caused at different levels as follows.

Mobility at the fixture level
It is usually a case of failing osseointegration. It is also possible (but less likely) that there’s a fracture of the implant fixture.

Mobility at the abutment level
Abutment could become mobile if the abutment screw is loosened.

Mobility at the crown level
The crown component (prosthetic component) could become loose if it is decemented or the retention screw becomes loose.

It is highly recommended to refer the patient to he specialist who placed the dental implant. Careful managemment approach is needed in complete examination of loose implant, including manipulation of the loose component, radiographs and occlusal examination.

For more information on the best possible Prosthodontic and Dental Implant Treatment for your case, please consult your Dentist. “There is no online material nor website that can substitute for professional advice.”
