If you have dental implants, you have one of the most natural restorative dentistry options for replacing teeth. But just like your natural teeth, implants require ongoing care and occasional repairs. At Dentistry of Kingwood, not only can we place dental implants, we also offer implant restorations and repairs to maintain your smile’s health and beauty.
Dental implants can last you the rest of your life, but they can have issues. The posts can become loose or the crowns can break, requiring an implant restoration. Trauma, bone loss and other issues can affect the health of your implants. If you have an implant that needs to be restored, we can fix, repair or replace your implant to keep your smile looking beautiful and your oral health at its highest level.
One of the most common problems that occur with dental implants is a broken crown. Like natural teeth, crowns can chip, crack and break, especially when they bite down on a hard substance or receive an impact. Auto and other accidents can damage your dental implants, requiring a repair. Dr. Ghattas is an experienced implant dentist that can repair almost any issue and restore your dental implant if it has damage or other problems.
Your dental implants need regular exams and maintenance like your natural teeth. We recommend you have your implants examined at least once a year to inspect for any damage or issues. Since dental implants do not have a nerve root like a natural tooth, you may not feel any pain or discomfort, even when there is a problem. Having routine checkups can identify any issues so we can fix the problem before it becomes worse.
