Sterilization process for used dental implants?

Last Updated April 12, 2013

If we attempt to install an implant, but cannot for whatever reason and the implant becomes contaminated, is there a way to resterilize the implant so we can use it again? I believe that some implant manufacturers sterilize their implants with radiation exposure. But in the typical dental office that is not possible. Can we resterilize the implant without destroying its reactive surface? Or is this simply a matter of one-time use and discard if we cannot install?
