Dental implants are very similar to natural teeth – they are anchored in the jawbone and support a “tooth” in the form of a dental crown, just like many natural teeth. Also, like natural teeth, dental implants can require restorations and repairs. When you have a dental implant that is loose or the attached crown is cracked, come see our team at Carrington Square Dental. We offer superior dental implant restorations at our dental center in Waxhaw, NC.
Dental implants have an extremely high success rate, but there are a select few that can fail or need restoration. Injury, bone loss, disease and other factors can result in a loose or failed implant. If you need a dental implant restoration, our experienced restorative dentists can help you explore your options. The implant post, abutment or crown can be replaced or restored if they are damaged or loose. Some dental implant restorations may require oral surgery for bone grafting, post replacement or other procedures.
Implant repairs are more common than restorations. Like natural teeth, your implant can be damaged from wear and tear, as well as injuries. Dental implants with dental crowns can require that the crown be repaired or replaced if it is chipped, cracked or broken. Abutments may need to be replaced or repaired. If you notice any damage to your dental implant, call our office to schedule an exam and repair consultation. If there is an injury to your gums or oral tissues, we can usually see you the same day for an emergency dental appointment.
Dental implants require maintenance and care like natural teeth. It is important to have annual exams and routine cleanings or checkups for your implants to identify any problems. Our dentists at Carrington Square Dental can perform your dental exams on your implants and natural teeth and provide the repairs or treatments needed at our dental center in Waxhaw, NC.
