Broken Implant Tooth

  • Dental implant broken? Crown or post damaged?
  • Dental implant fallen out or failing?
  • Implant crown chipped, sharp and jagged?

Implant failure and breaks are rare. But as implants function like natural teeth they may be subject to undue force or have become weakened over time through bad oral habits, like grinding.

Repair your implant and be seen within 4 hours. No registration required.

Dental implant repairs in 24 hours

Dental implants can break when subjected to too much pressure before they’ve properly integrated with the jawbone. However, other parts of the restoration, like the crown or post can also be damaged.

Wear and tear might break the abutment, or the crown might chip. However, if the implant feels loose or awkward, we’ll need to take a look to save your tooth.

When booking an appointment today, you’ll only pay for our time.

"My implant fell out!"


“I had two implants fitted at my local practice and both came loose. I went back and had them refitted, but once again they came out and I was provided with no explanation as to why this was happening. Then, a friend recommended Maida, who fitted me in straight away, think it was half an hour with my call. Dr Pedro, assessed and scanned my smile, told me there wasn’t enough bone in the jaw to keep my implant stable, which meant I needed a bone graft first. So, we came up with a temporary solution to fill my gap and 6 months later I now have an implant that doesn’t wobble. 👏 Thanks Maida!”

What do if you break your implant

If your dental implant repair that involves a new implant, you should expect to pay £2,500 for a new implant, post and crown. Whereas a new crown will only cost from £900.

A broken dental crown is not always classed as an emergency. However, if the edges are sharp or cracked and it’s irritating the mouth, it’s best to have this treated straight away. Dental crowns are like natural teeth, so if there’s too much force, for example, they can chip or break. But thankfully, there’s same-day solutions to replace a crown within the time it takes for lunch.

If the abutment screw is fractured, Dr Gutierres will typically only need to restore the parts that do not involve the implant itself. However, if the problem is with the titanium screw itself, the only option is to take it out and replace it with another implant. 

If the reason for failure is a lack of bone, a bone graft procedure might be recommended to build up the bone’s structure to ensure the jaw is strong and dense enough to support the implant. That said, scans should have been carried out to assess the bone in the jaw before an implant is placed, but sometimes the implant can be loose if it’s not properly fused with the bone, which can happen if the osseointegration process has been rushed.

If the crown comes off, it’s not so serious and usually can be solved by re-attaching and tightening the screws. 

However, if the implant itself has fallen out, there’s a chance we might be able to reinsert it. But it’s best to diagnose the reason why it’s failed in the first place.

That said, if you’ve experienced any of the above, it’s recommended to see us immediately.

I've been receiving orthodontic treatment for about a year now with Dr. Ines and she's a wonderful mixture of highly skilled and professional, very thorough, and gentle in her approach. She is also super personable and I always look forward to my monthly appointments with her. She's made such a big improvement to my teeth and I'm very happy with my treatment so far -- I highly recommend Dr. Ines. I've also had other treatments with Maida Smiles and always had a great experience, especially with my wisdom teeth removal (by Dr. Pedro) that went very smoothly without any issues. The team's treatment coordinator/dentist nurse Cinthia is also always super kind and helpful if you have any questions or want to understand treatments.

I had the lovely Dr Shankar for a 4 month Invisalign treatment. I mainly had overcrowding that needed sorting out after having had braces as a teenager and not wearing my retainer. Dr Shankar was delightful and has a lovely energy about him that made me feel very comfortable throughout the whole process. He explained processes well and also gave good advice to help me make informed decisions. I would highly highly recommend him to anyone in the Maida Vale area!

I had 2 wisdom teeth (on the same side) removed by Dr Pedro. I had a much better experience than I expected. One month later, I have completely recovered without any complications. Absolutely recommend!

I was recommended to start my treatment at the clinic and I couldn't be more pleased. It has been 6 months since I put my braces on and I am being followed by Dr. Ines and Dr. Cíntia. I can already see great changes and can't wait for the final result. Excellent professionals. The whole environment is very calm which makes you comfortable. 100% recommend Maida Smiles Clinic.

Following a friend’s recommendation, I brought my eldest daughter to Dr Ines do Carmo for orthodontic treatment. Ines has been brilliant throughout the treatment; she is incredibly passionate about her work and this is reflected in her skilled perfectionism and the amazing results she achieves for her patients. From the start, Ines’ warm and friendly manner succeeded in putting my apprehensive daughter at ease. She was also forthcoming and thorough in her explanations of the treatment, and happy to share her extensive knowledge. My daughter now has an even lovelier smile thanks to Ines. I highly recommend her and will be bringing my younger children to her for their orthodontic treatment.

Dr. Ines and Cintia took care of me and made me feel welcome during the consultation. I will continue my treatment in the clinic. I recommend the clinic and especially Dr. Ines do Carmo.

It is my good fortune to have found Dra inês at Maida Smiles Clinic and to have her as my orthodontist. My complex orthodontic treatment, as an adult, defies all laws of physics, but Dra Inês has the most amazing professional expertise and compassion to help and change lives, and she is helping me massively. In each consultation, Dra Inês moves one-step forward to improve my bite, my oral health in general and my smile! I will be forever grateful to Dra Inês for her outstanding care, professionalism and support she provides in each visit, in such a caring and friendly way. I warmly recommend Dra Inês and Maida Smiles Clinic to anyone who os considering orthodontics.

We were on a short trip to London and my wife's implant got loose. We called Maida Smiles and they immediately saw her. They kindly sorted the issue out and my wife was extremely satisfied with the kind, friendly and professional service. Thanks Dr Pedro.

I can’t thank enough Dr Pedro Gutierres and Maida Smiles’ team for guiding me through a multiple teeth extraction operation I had at the clinic recently. I’m a very anxious patient and everyone at Maida Smiles went above and beyond to accommodate my questions, asks and concerns. The operation itself was painless and positively uneventful, healing was quick and after-care second to none. Never thought I’d say this to myself but I’m looking forward to my next dentist appointment at Maida Smiles.
