Failing Implant Treatment
Posted on 08.08.2012 09:44 AM By scot mardis In Failures
We extracted 4 in Dec-11 and grafted. Waited 3 months and place an OCO ISI one piece 3.0x12mm implant. It torqued in over 40ncm. We placed a temporary crown out of occlusion to progressively load. The implant now is slightly mobile, asymptomatic, and appears to be failing on the radiograph.
Diagnosis- was that the implant may been placed and the graft was not mature, it was bot in solid bone at the apex and became mobile as it was loaded.
Treatment: 1) remove the failing implant and place a wider implant, 3.7 x14mm 2 stage, and place healing abutement on and allow to heal.
2) remove failing implant, curretage, graft and allow to heal and come back in 4 months and place new implant.
My question is my diagnosis correct for the failure and is there any reason not to just remove the failing implant and put a wider one in?
Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
