Bone resorption: Can I Submerge the Implant?

Last Updated January 12, 2017
Reviewed By:  OsseoNews Team

I have a patient with bone resorption around the implant. Almost half the length of the implant is exposed but there is no inflammation or infection and the implant is not mobile. Is it possible to cut the implant at bone level and submerge it? If so, is it easy to cut titanium? What should one use to cut it? I do understand that the implant can be explanted, but can I avoid that by cutting the implant?
