Implants: My husband had 4 implants.
Had surgeon do the implants and then the other doctor put them in.
I talked him into this and now with the second day on one side they are loose. The doctor said there was nothing he could except to wait until they come out or drill another one?
I am sooo upset .. the cost $$$$$$ !! But I wanted the job done. It has been 6 months. What can we do? I was thinking to take him to another dentist. ...Visitor from FL
I assume that these were traditional, not mini-dental implants.
Not all surgery is successful, but it sounds like the surgeon is willing to work with you and replace the implants.
I would probably keep working with him since he already has the fee and sounds willing to try again. If you have reason to believe that he is not interested in retreating, you can seek another opinion.
