The crown of your implant can become loose due to a small crack by eating hard food, change in your bite or excessive pressure due to stress. This is definitely a dental emergency and if it is left untreated, the crown will further become loose which can be the reason for falling off completely.
Besides, the gap created between the gums and the crown creates a positive environment for the built-up of bacteria from foods and drinks. The results may be disastrous for your implant and overall oral health. When the crown is not sealed properly and the bacteria enter this space, it is quite possible to cause gum infection. This may lead to severe implications such as bone loss, gum loss and reaction to the implant and need of its removal.

Replacing a missing tooth with dental implant won’t make gum infections to go away. Despite the crown’s less chances to collect plaque, the bacteria can still enter between the tooth and the gum. These bacteria can hardly be removed with brushing teeth at home and you may suffer from an infection causing dental abscess, severe pain or other problems.
If you feel any bad smell from around the dental implant or your gums are bleeding, schedule an appointment with our emergency dentist quickly. There are cases when a professional cleaning from the hygienist will be sufficient to get rid of the infection. If you need to perform complicated treatment, our dentist will advise you on your options so that you can take an informed decision and treat the condition quickly.
Besides, a gum infection whether swollen or red, can be the reason for gum recession and bone loss. This makes it very difficult for another implant to be applied in the space of lost one.
You should not take any medication before an emergency dental implant appointment. If the pain becomes unbearable, try taking over-the-counter pain killer with paracetamol. This medicine will slow down any infection in the gums and lessen the pain. Additionally, you can rinse mouth with warm salt water.
During the initial appointment, your dentist will recognize the issue and assess the severity of it with all possible treatment options for you.
