Dental implants are very similar to natural teeth and can have similar problems. Like natural teeth, they do require maintenance and good oral hygiene. They also may need repairs if they are damaged. As part of our restorative dentistry treatments at Smile Design Studios, we have implant dentists that can perform implant restorations or repairs when needed for your dental implants.
Dental implants have an extremely high success rate and can last for decades. However, problems can occur that may require an implant restoration. Bone loss can cause instability in the implant or other problems with the surgical site can occur. To restore the implant, bone grafting or reinserting a new implant may be required, depending on the circumstance.
Dental Implant Repairs
The most common issue with dental implants is damage to the outer portion of the implant. The visible, functional portion of a dental implant is made of an abutment and dental crown. Both can be damaged from trauma or other factors. If a dental crown on an implant cracks or becomes loose, we can replace the crown and repair the implant. Most dental implants can be repaired or restored when they are damaged. This is especially true if you seek dental care right away.
Dental implants may look like natural teeth, but they do not have the same nerve endings that can alert you when something is wrong. It is vital to have routine checkups to maintain your dental implants. Our experienced implant dentists can monitor the health of your implant during checkups and examine them for any problems. If there are issues, we can repair or restore most damaged dental implants at our clinic.
