Peri-Implantitis - Hamilton, ON

Have Failing Dental Implants?

You Need an Expert

If you’ve completed dental implant treatment and have swelling, pain or infection around your implants, you need care from an expert like our dentist in Hamilton, ON. While dental implants are considered the preferred option for replacing teeth today, you can still experience failing dental implants. One of the biggest contributors to implant failure is under-engineering. If too few implants were placed or inserted in the wrong location or angle to support a prosthesis or your bite wasn’t properly adjusted, this will cause an unequal distribution of pressure.

Any excessive force on an implant can result in prosthetic fracture, bone loss, infection and eventual failure of the implant(s). You’ll need the expertise of a trained dental professional to assess your situation and remove the implant, if necessary. An implant expert like our dentist will also have the level of skill and necessary technology to replace your dental implant—and do it right. If you’re noticing signs of ailing or failing dental implants in Hamilton, ON, don’t wait to get treatment from our team!

A Solution for Failing Dental Implants

The most common solution for failing dental implants is a total replacement of the implant itself. We will determine this after an evaluation and X-rays. But in most cases where the implant hasn’t responded to either nonsurgical or surgical intervention (peri-implantitis treatment and bone grafts), this is the best option for your health and function. In general, there are two techniques for removing a failing dental implant from your bone. One is to cut a small portion of bone, sometimes with a piezo-electric device, around the implant edge so it can easily be removed. Another technique is to “reverse torque” the implant out of the bone. In all instances, our goal is to preserve as much of your natural bone as possible for more predictable and lasting implant success in the future.

Hi, I’m Dr. Michael Ling

Do you feel like no matter what you do, dentistry just doesn’t seem to work in your mouth?

Almost all of the people I meet have major dental problems, and have just about given up on dentistry… and dentists.

They’re tired of getting the same teeth fixed over and over and over again, and never making any progress.

They’re frustrated that no matter what they do, their teeth keep breaking and getting cavities.

And they’re sick of feeling judged and shamed every time they visit the dentist… as if it’s THEIR fault that their teeth are failing them.

Well… I’m here to promise you that there is hope for you.

If you’re ready to break the cycle of dental problems so you can finally smile again… we’ve got your back!

• You CAN have a smile that’s free from discomfort and embarrassment.

• You CAN eat whatever you want, without worrying about chewing your food or your teeth falling out.

• You CAN avoid dentures, and give yourself teeth that are rock-solid, permanent, and never need to be removed

How am I so confident? Because today’s dentistry has come so far that we can find a solution to ANY problem. Sometimes it’s harder, or takes longer, or requires some creative problem solving… but I can promise you that if it’s important enough to you, we can make it happen.

Hi, I’m Dr. Sorana Schneider

My promise to you: NO judgment and NO lectures… EVER.

Are you feeling frustrated by all the information out there about fixing your teeth?

It’s easy to feel overwhelmed and confused when you start talking to dentists or looking into your options for getting your smile back on track.

There’s too much dental terminology. Too many complicated treatment plans. Too much pressure to go ahead with treatment you don’t want or care about.

Well… I believe getting the smile you want should be easy.

It should be easy to understand what’s going on in your mouth… without needing a dental degree or dictionary.

Easy to know which options are a good idea for you… and which ones you might regret later on.

And easy to get what YOU want… not what your dentist thinks you SHOULD want.

My promise to you: NO judgment and NO lectures.

What you will find is a customized action plan to get you eating and smiling with confidence again, and that plan is the one that’s the best balance between what you want, what you need, and what you can afford.

If that sounds good to you… I can’t wait to meet you in person!
