Dental implants are the most like natural teeth when it comes to restorative dentistry. Each implant is secured to the jaw bone and needs regular care just like a natural tooth. While this has its advantages, it also means that dental implants, like natural teeth, can need maintenance and repairs. At Rolling Hills Dentistry, we are experts at both placing dental implants and helping our patients maintain their new smile with dental implant restorations.
Once a dental implant is in place, it can last for decades, often for the rest of the patient’s life. However, trauma, disease and other issues can affect the implant site and there are times when an implant must be restored. In addition, older dental implants may not have been placed with the same skill and technology that is available today. When a dental implant needs to be repaired or restored, our team at Rolling Hills Dentistry can fix the issue and ensure your implant can continue to function and complete your smile.
