Although in some scenarios, complications may arise which may require an implant to be removed.

In some situation, implants need to be extracted completely, in case it fails, this is necessary to prevent further damage. Dental implants usually fail when the transplant get infected or when it is not compatible with the host. There are two main types of implant failure.

Because a patient will be subjected to anesthesia, then the specialist will use appropriate medical tools to perform the procedure. These tools must be sterilized to kill disease-causing micro-organisms.
Tools that the specialist, utilize to remove the implant work the same way, just like the screw together with a screwdriver. This tool is suitable for the groove the implant. Before the specialist removes the implant, he/she will drill the bone surrounding the implant, to extract it safely.
