An Excellent Way to Replace Missing Teeth
Living with one or more missing teeth can affect the overall look and feel of your smile. It can also lead to a variety of health issues, including potential bite and jaw joint problems and bone loss in the jaw. Dental implants are the best way to avoid these issues and get your smile back. However, even though dental implants are one of the most effective and lasting restorative treatments, sometimes they do require to be restored as well.
At Timberhill Dental, we can fix damaged dental implants to ensure they keep your smile (and implant) in great shape. Do you suspect one of your dental implants is failing? We can help.
Why Do Dental Implants Fail?
A dental implant replaces the roots of teeth. The implant attaches directly to your jawbone forming a secure, long-lasting bond. After about six months, when the implant is fully healed, an artificial tooth is attached to the top of the implant. The result is a natural looking, undetectable replacement for the missing tooth.
Although uncommon, dental implants can fail for several reasons, including failure to attach to the bone, infection, implant fracture, and bone loss. When you visit us for an implant restoration, we’ll consult with an oral surgeon so they understand exactly what’s going on and know how to fix your implant properly. Then, you’ll come back to our office for the restoration.
