When you have dental implants, you have the closest restorative dentistry treatment to natural teeth for your dental restoration. They look and function like natural teeth and require the same type of maintenance. Keeping them clean and healthy is important, and so is repairing them when needed. At Buford Family Dental, we offer professional repairs and restorations for your dental implants to keep your smile in good health.
Many patients we see have had their dental implants for several years or longer. While implants can last for decades, there are instances where they may need to be replaced or restored. We use the most advanced dental technology to help our dental implant patients restore their implants if they break or become loose. We can reconstruct the existing implant or add a new implant, depending on the condition of the existing dental prosthetic.
Since dental implants are rooted on a titanium post, it is unlikely the post will be damaged. If the surgical site is secure, the post will stay in place for many years. However, the crown that makes up the functional and visible part of the tooth can be damaged. It is common to have a dental crown get cracked or become loose, needing repair. Our dental team can examine the implant and make the needed repairs, right in our office in Buford.
It is important to keep up with your dental checkups to have your dental implants inspected at least annually. Your implants may look like natural teeth, but they do not have the nerve roots that will tell you when something is wrong. Checkups can identify any issues so we can repair your implant if needed. Your dental implants are a significant investment, so let our team help you keep them maintained and healthy to protect your new smile. Contact Buford Family Dental today to schedule your appointment.
