An Inconvenience, Not an Emergency: What to Do If Your Dental Implant Falls Out
The first thing you need to understand is that a dental implant is unlikely to fall out. In any event, it will be the prosthesis (the false tooth) fitted to the metallic implant that will become loose or fall out, and this is a rare occurrence. Dental implants are engineered and installed with such precision that they are designed to last a lifetime, provided you take care of them. Just as you might damage a natural tooth by biting something that is particularly hard or cold, a dental implant can also become damaged in this way.
