Top Reasons for Dental Implant Repairs Carrollton, GA
Older Adults Dentist Carrollton GA

When it comes to replacing missing teeth, dental implants remain a superior solution. They mimic your natural teeth in look, feel and function better than any other restorative dentistry option. Not only are dental implants a permanent restoration, but they offer a remarkably high success rate. Unfortunately, that doesn’t mean dental implants are invincible. Certain situations, habits and conditions can cause an implant or implant restoration to fail. In such cases, you’ll need a qualified dentist who offers implant repairs.

Just like there are multiple reasons why a dental implant may become damaged, there are also several different ways to repair it. You can trust Dr. Tejal Kakade to offer a full menu of dental implant repairs at our Carrollton office so that you can keep reaping the life-long advantages of this advanced treatment in modern dentistry.

Evaluating the Damage

There are two basic parts to a dental implant – the surgical implant post that is secured to your jawbone and the implant restoration (crown, bridge, denture) that attaches to the implant above the gum line. It is important to know that most dental implant repairs only involve the restoration, not the implant itself. This involves a much quicker and much less invasive fix than replacing the actual dental implant. A denture, crown or bridge may suffer chips and fractures or become loose over time. Implant restorations do have a specific lifespan and cannot last as long the surgical post that has fused to your jawbone (implant).

Though less common, failure within the dental implant does occur. This can happen just weeks after your implant placement or several years down the road. Reasons why a dental implant may need replacement includes the following:

Gum Disease: If periodontal disease goes unchecked, it can destroy the tissues and bone that hold your dental implant in place. An implant needs healthy and strong bone to retain its stability. Therefore, gum disease is a leading reason for implant failure.

Surgical Error: Rarely, the implant surgery may have included poor technique or placement. It is important to find a dentist who carries experience and skill as well as one who uses the latest imaging and technology in implant dentistry.

Inadequate Healing: Dental implants must undergo proper healing after their placement, which also involves osseointegration or the fusing of the titanium post to the jawbone. If healing is compromised (such as from an infection or other threat), the implant will not be successful.

This was absolutely the best experience I have ever had with any dentist. Dr. Tejal is so attentive to the needs of her patients. She cares deeply about the quality of service provided and taking care of you individually. You don't feel like a number. You leave knowing that you received the best care and beautiful smile to go with it.

I have never had a bad experience going to see Dr. Kakade and her amazing, caring staff. They make it super easy to book an appointment, send you helpful reminders via text, and you are in and out in a short amount of time with hardly any wait time. The office is warm and inviting with nice decor and even dentist chairs that massage you! Best of all, the entire staff genuinely care about their patients and want to help them have the best experience possible. They remember you and get to know you. I actually look forward to going!

Dr. Tejal and her wonderful staff do everything humanly possible to make every patient feel welcomed, supported, and cared for with the utmost compassion and professionalism. It feels as though one has been adopted into a family of caretakers and that you are a part of the family. 5 Stars and thumbs up all the way! They are the best! I speak from personal experience.


My family has used Dr. Tejal since she started her practice in Carrollton. She is thorough, detailed, and comprehensive in her approach to dental care. She seems to invest in new technology and modern methods to make routine and extraordinary care as easy for the patient as possible. Candy has been my hygienist for over a decade and does a fantastic job restoring my teeth to tip-top shape. On the rare occasion when Candy was unavailable, the other members of Dr. Tejal's team have been excellent.

Jordan D.

Calm and peaceful office.

Prentice M.

Wonderful office staff, nice environment. Dr. Tejal and staff do a great job of making one feel comfortable and the dental work after local anesthesia want uncomfortable. Few people like going to the dentist, but my experience here has been excellent.
