What Is Dental Implant Rejection?

This is the phenomenon that occurs when the healing process after the placement of the implant is not adequate and, therefore, it cannot be integrated correctly. Rejection of an implant can be defined as treatment failure. This is because successful treatment achieves osseointegration at 3 months.

Dental implants are manufactured with materials biocompatible with our body, such as titanium, to avoid any type of rejection and that they can be perfectly integrated. Although there are people who are allergic to metal! For these occasions, ceramic materials such as zirconium are used.

When the so-called «rejection of a dental implant» really what happens is that there are complications that affect the functionality of the implant. The tissues that support the implant are affected and replacement is needed.
