Reply To: Abutment & Crown Fell Out – Risk of Leaving a Hole?


What part of the restoration (post, abutment or crown) needs to be repaired? Is the implant secure or is it a little bit loose?

If the implant was put in by a dentist who is familiar with implants and assuming you haven’t had any issues in 2 years since it was put back in, then the risk of infection is minimal. Keep an eye on the area and be sure to practice good oral hygiene.
