Dental implants are a wonderful treatment option for many patients. Although dental implants are extremely reliable, sometimes even a well-placed implant will have problems or fail.
If you begin experiencing problems with a dental implant, you may need dental implant restoration. Dental implant restoration is simply a term used by dentists to refer to the process of restoring or otherwise mending a damaged dental implant.
Dental implants can become damaged for a variety of reasons. Often, only part of the implant, such as the crown, will crack or split. Other times, the actual titanium post will become loose or fail to fuse with the jawbone.
The level of restoration needed will vary with every dental implant. Sometimes, the restorative process could simply mean placing a new porcelain crown. Other times, unfortunately, an implant will need to be removed from the jawbone entirely. In these situations, we would work with you to schedule an appointment to place a new implant.
