Everything You Need to Know About Implant Restoration
Is your dental implant broken? The longer you have had your dental implant, the more likely it will merit a visit to your dentist for repair. Your dentist can repair your dental implant to make it look good as new. Dr. Dufour at Great Northern Dental Associates, PC in Escanaba, MI, offers dental implant restoration using the newest technology available. Here's everything you need to know about dental implant restoration.
Regular Checkups Dental implants can often last for a lifetime — if you take care of them properly. Implants and real teeth require the same care — brushing, flossing and regular checkups. You should have your dental implants examined at least once a year to inspect for any damage or problems. At your checkup, your dentist will inspect and examine the health of your implant and make any needed repairs. Regular checkups will ensure that any problems are caught early and treated as quickly as possible.
Implant Repairs But just like your natural teeth, implants require ongoing care and occasional repairs. Your implants are durable but they can be cracked, chipped or broken just like real teeth. The posts can become loose or the dental crowns can break, requiring a dental implant restoration. If the crown needs to be replaced, your Escanaba dentist will create a new one for you and attach it to the abutment that is secured to your implant. Occasionally, implants may need to be re-tightened or replaced due to normal wear and tear over time.
