Dr. Jeremy Ueno Can Help Treat Patients That Have Failing Implants

Campbell, CA (PRWEB) July 22, 2014

Dr. Jeremy K. Ueno, of Ueno Periodontics, along with his surgical colleagues, have recently discussed the reasons for an increase in patients with failing dental implants. Many leaders in the periodontics profession are seeing the amount of referrals they get to treat failing implants go up exponentially. In fact, one surgeon reported that over 50% of his implant referrals are to treat failing implants. Although dental implants have a very high success rate of up to 99 percent for healthy individuals in the hands of skilled surgeons, implants can fail due to a variety of reasons. Some of these people who have failing implants often feel like they have no options to fix their failing implants. For those in the Bay Area, Dr. Ueno offers treatment for these failing or non-aesthetic dental implants.

The success rate of dental implants is dependent on many factors. These factors include medical history, social habits, the extent of current oral disease, the type of implant placed and the skill of the surgeon placing the implants. The implant success rates drop significantly in patients who have a history of diabetes, who smoke and who have a history of periodontal/gum disease, etc. A large number of Americans have diabetes and smoke and have encountered tooth loss. Because of this, these patients have a desire to replace their teeth with dental implants and many of these people in this demographic are seeing failures, bone loss or implants that they find unaesthetic.

As previously stated, the type of implant placed can play a role as there are over 200 different implant companies on the market and some are better than others. At Ueno Periodontics, Dr. Ueno only places the most trusted implants on the market including Straumann, Ankylos and Astra. For those patients with failing implants, Dr. Ueno strives to "heal" or treat these implants to make them more stable and more aesthetically pleasing. Unfortunately, not all implants can be saved, and there are times where Dr. Ueno will have to remove the failing implants and "start from scratch" to place a newer, more stable and more aesthetic implant. If an inferior implant was placed prior, Dr. Ueno will replace the failed implant with a top quality implant.

Dr. Ueno uses his advanced implant knowledge along with his gum grafting (Periodontal plastic surgery) and bone grafting techniques to help treat people with failing or ailing implants.
