What Causes Implants to Feel Loose and What To Do About It

Loose Crown

Dental implants replace an entire missing tooth from the crown to the roots. A process called osseointegration allows your bone tissues to fuse around your implants creating a strong and stable foundation for your crowns. 

Sometimes the crown can loosen over time, but not to worry, because your dentist can tighten it again or simply replace the crown with a new one. 

Failed Osseointegration

When osseointegration is not successful, your jawbone will not be able to hold the implant securely and with the lack of foundation, there’s a tendency that your implants will loosen within a year. Bone grafting may be necessary to improve your jawbone density.
