Loose dental implants crown
If the crown of your implant has become loose, you may not consider this a dental emergency. Nonetheless, left untreated, the crown will further loosen itself, which may lead to it completely falling off.
Furthermore, the gap created between the crown and the gums creates a favourable environment for the gathering of bacteria from food and drink. The results of this food collection can be catastrophic for your implant and overall dental health. If the crown is not sealed correctly and bacteria enter this space, it is very likely to result in gum infection, which can have severe implications, including gum and bone loss, as well as a reaction to the implant and the need of its removal.
If you sense that your crown has become loose, or there’s a foul smell coming from the area of the implant, book your emergency dental implant appointment as soon as possible. Our dentists and specialists have over 20 years of experience in providing emergency dental treatment to Londoners and our clinics cover the full range of dental treatments to help anyone in need.
Gum infection around a dental implant
A gum infection around a dental implant should not be taken lightly. With the implant being a foreign body to the organism, any infection may cause a rejection of it which could lead to the necessity of completely removing the implant.
Furthermore, a gum infection (swollen, red, and/or bleeding gums) can cause gum recess and even bone loss, making it difficult or impossible for another implant to be applied in the space of the lost one.
How to prepare for your emergency dental implant appointment?
Where possible, avoid taking medication before an emergency dental implant appointment. If the pain becomes unbearable, try to opt for a traditional, over-the-counter pain killer containing paracetamol. This type of medicine will help slow down any infection in the gums and reduce the pain. Additionally, you can use Corsodyl Dental Gel locally around the implant, or rinse your mouth with warm (not hot) saltwater.
