How to Lower Your Chances of Implant Rejection

Implant rejection is never something you want to go through. However, it can happen at any point in time during the healing process. If you want to have the best chances of keeping your dental implants over the long-term, it is important that you care for your mouth properly and do whatever you can to reduce your chances of rejecting your dental implants. Here are a few things you can do to reduce the chances of that happening.

Implant Rejection Can Be Avoided in Most Cases

The number one cause of implant rejection is smoking. If you want to avoid losing your implants in the healing time following surgery, you need to give up smoking. While it may be something you pick back up a year or two from now, you need to stop doing it before surgery and during the entire healing phase. If you grind and clench your teeth, you need to have this treated prior to getting implants.

The clenching motion can push your teeth out of place, and it can cause implant rejection. Wiggling your teeth back and forth during the grinding phase can also cause your implants to come loose and not fuse properly.
Taking proper care of your mouth is important to avoid dental implant rejection. This means cleaning your teeth properly, caring for your gums the right way, and staying on top of any medical ailment that could do damage to your mouth, such as diabetes.

For more tips on how to prevent implant rejection, talk to your oral surgeon before you have the procedure. They can talk to you about any issues you currently face that could damage the implant healing process, and how to correct those issues. That way, you have the best chances of your implants successfully fusing with the bones in your mouth.
