Our body protects itself by rejecting anything it does not believe belongs. One of the risks of kidney or heart transplants is that the patient's body can reject the new organ. Dental implant rejection is when this happens to a dental implant.
Typically, the first thing that happens with dental implant rejection is that the bone and gums surrounding the dental implant gets inflamed, red and swollen. The patient's immune system attacks this tissue. As the support for the dental implant is lost, the area around the dental implant becomes painful and the dental implant gets loose. In most cases, the dental implant must then be removed.
