I broke 4 teeth in an accident when my face hit the steering wheel. They have horribly broken almost to the gumline, so it was easy for me to decide on dental implants. I chose a dentist here whose cost was $3000 less than the other 3 quotes I got from other dentists. I am almost in tears and 2 months into an infection that won’t disappear. Somehow, I convinced myself that the doctor was looking out for me and that the other dentists were trying to make a profit. Now the dentist is telling me that my implants need to be redone. The dental implants were cheap because the price was so low, but now I see they are also cheap. I don’t know what went wrong. The dentist said he would fix it at all no cost, but I am so afraid that my mouth will never heal. What should I do? Thank you. Vaibhav

What Can You Do When a Dental Implant Infection Lingers?
When a dental implant infection does not improve, we recommend getting a second opinion from an independent, experienced implant dentist. If your dental implants have failed and a dentist must replace them, something went wrong in one of these areas:
- Implant quality
It is possible that your dentist made more than one mistake.
Look for a dentist with advanced implant training and proven experience in proper and successful implant placement. You will discover what went wrong with your current dental implants and what a dentist must do to correct the situation. Although your dentist offers to replace the implants at no cost, it may cause more discomfort and other concerns with your oral health that will be even more costly.
A second opinion will help you decide what to do in the best interests of your oral health.
