Dr. Leon Chen has developed an instrument specifically designed to remove failing and/or compromised implants. This instrument allows us to less invasively remove and replace implants.
As implants become more and more popular, many more doctors are placing them, and since training varies from doctor to doctor, we are having a large number of people coming to us with complications. The Dental Implant Institute can fix ANY complication, no matter how bad or “hopeless” the case may be. At the Dental Implant institute we have placed over 30,000 implants, and we have the tools and the knowledge needed to fix any implant problems that may arise.
This patient had an implant placed in another state. As you can see, the implant became infected and the gum tissue and bone receded. The patient’s doctor said he was unable to do anything, so the patient came to us. Dr. Chen was able to fix this implant.
This patient was origianlly happy with the implant they had recieved, however after time the gums began to recede and the implant began to protrude through the gums. The patient came to us for help. Dr. Chen was able to repair this implant using a ridge augmentation technique that he invented.
This patient shopped around and was quoted a lower price for her implants than we charged, and she had her implant placed somewhere else for cheaper. This implant had become severly infected and the infection had spread to her neck. After her doctor explained that he couldnt help her, she came back to us to see if we could fix it.
This patient had 2 implants performed at a different office. The doctor had placed them crooked, and the patients denture could not be seated, and on top of that they were painfully impinging on the patients tounge and one of the implants had damaged the patients nerve, causing permanent numbness. The implants had been fused with the bone and so her doctor told her that she would have to get used to the pain, because the implants could not be removed. The patient came to us for a better solution.
Dr. Chen was quickly able to atraumatically remove the implants and place new ones. Whithin 3 months the patient had a new bottom denture, and was extremely happy with the results.
This patient had their implants placed 15 years prior, and since then, thier doctor had retired. Over time the patient had begun to bite on their tongue. For over 5 years the patient looked for a doctor who would repair and finish the work that another doctor had performed, but every doctor they went to refused. The patient came to the Dental Implant Institute and Dr. Chen was able to help.
The position of the implants was too close to the tongue, and their alignment and position was off.
Dr. Chen removed the old implants and replaced them with new ones in the proper place. The patient has been pain free ever since.
