Dental implants are the most like natural teeth when it comes to implant 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.
One of the most common repairs needed on dental implants is on the crown. Dental crowns are meant to function like natural teeth, but they can chip, crack or become loose, needing repair or replacement. We can easily perform dental implant repairs at our office, restoring your implant to a beautiful, functional tooth again.
Since dental implants do not contain a nerve root like a natural tooth, you may not always know when a problem occurs with an implant unless it is visible. This is another good reason to keep up with your regular checkups to ensure your implants are in good condition. During your checkups, our dental team will carefully inspect your implants to identify any issues and recommend repairs when needed. Contact Rolling Hills Dentistry today to schedule your next checkup and be sure to call us whenever you need an implant repair or restoration.
