Dental Implants Ask The Dentist Edward Brant Question:
Can dental implants be removed? I am about to go for a Dental Implant consultation and would like to know if these can be easily removed?

Any feedback would be great as 1) I want to make sure I get the right information and not just told "Don't worry this is the way to go..." from someone who is making money from me and 2) if better technology comes along I would like to know that I am not going to be limited in choices because of the implants. ... Visitor from South Africa

Answer:
Yes, they can be removed but if not replaced, a variety of bone resorption issues may result. Without tooth roots or implant devices, jawbone typically resorbs (disappears) away.

In addition, you may need a socket graft for each implant site, especially if there are adjacent teeth since there may be some risk of compromising the stability of those adjacent teeth.

Be careful.
