Can a dental implant be knocked out like normal teeth?

Q. I am down to get a dental implant and due to the cost I want to make sure it is a success. I know normal teeth can be knocked out through accidents, but what I would like to know is if there is the chance that a dental implant can fall out as well? When playing football or some other sport like rugby is there the possibility?

Hi Thanks for your question.

In the same way that your natural teeth can be lost or damaged through trauma such as a sporting accident, the same is the case for dental implants.

A good quality, well constructed mouthguard can be used to minimise the risk when playing sports.
