Dental Implant Failure after 8 months: Your Thoughts?

Last Updated April 10, 2019

I placed an implant to replace tooth #14 a year ago. It was fully integrated with an ISQ value of 82 at the time of the loading. The crown placement was 5 months ago. Everything was perfect with this implant, no bone loss or any sign of failure. I had the patient for a regular cleaning yesterday and her complaint was that she noticed mobility in that implant- crown for a week. Initially, I thought it is the screw. It was unfortunate that the implant and crown were mobile in all directions and there was nothing wrong with the screw. The implant came out so easily without any resistance and the surface of the implant has no bone! The site was curetted and it was packed with fibrous tissue and the implant was encapsulated. Sharing your thoughts about this case would be greatly appreciated!
