If you are missing one or more teeth, you may have discovered that dental implants can be a suitable treatment option. Even though implants are incredibly durable, they are not invincible. There is a chance that you may have developed an issue with your implant. If you need help fixing an implant, it would be our pleasure to help you. Learn more about Caring Dental’s implant restoration options below, and contact us to schedule an appointment with our office.
Why Is My Implant Damaged?
One of the major benefits of having a dental implant is that you can eat a regular diet. Even though your dental implant is durable, there are still situations where it might get damaged. For example, if you play contact sports and get hit in the mouth, a chunk of your implant might get knocked off. Or, if you are involved in a traumatic accident, your implant may get chipped or cracked. It can be very frustrating if your implant does not stand up to this type of trauma, but treatment options are available. We have the necessary experience to help you fix your implant, and we would be happy to talk about your options.
What Are the Treatment Options?
There are several treatment options available, and we will customize the treatment process depending on the severity of the damage. If your implant has suffered a lot of damage, we may have to replace the entire cap. Again, we will customize the porcelain cap to meet your needs, making sure it looks like your surrounding teeth.
There is also a chance that we may be able to fix the cap that is already in place. We might be able to use resin or cement to round out the edges, restoring your implant to its original form. We will talk with you about the benefits and drawbacks of each option, depending on your case.
How Do I Take Care of the Implant?
Once we have fixed the implant, you need to take care of it accordingly. For example, you need to brush your teeth twice a day. You also need to floss the implant every day. We also encourage you to come to our office at least twice yearly to ensure the rest of your teeth are in good shape. This also allows you to ask questions about your implant. If you have concerns about how to take care of your teeth, we are here to answer them.
