Mobilty in implants
Simple answer = mobility in implants is NOT GOOD. Indicates failure. Please seek the care of a specialist. Implant mobility in anterior teeth should be less than 10-100 microns which is the equivalent to 0.0004 inches, or approximately the size of a human hair.... if you can move the implant MORE than that, its a good indication of implant failure.
