Hi Doc, I have had a tooth implant since I was about 16 years due to a football injury. It has recently been falling out. It has a screw in the middle so I am guessing its a screw in. Its not broken or anything but what can be done to put it back in??

See your dentist as soon as possible, preferably the dentist who placed your dental implant, for a thorough evaluation! If the tooth implant is loose, You need to see the oral surgeon, for possible extraction or salvaging the dental implant via surgery and bone graft. If the post ( the abutment) is loose, it can be possibly due to screw and better prognosis to salvage your dental implant and place a new dental crown.
