Dental Implant Restorations
Restoring a missing tooth by way of the dental implant is becoming more popular. This restorative dental treatment is appealing because of the aesthetics and the way it feels just like a natural tooth. Unlike partial dentures, you do not remove it for cleaning. You also do not have to undergo the preparation of neighboring teeth for crownwork as you do for a bridge. The implant is a permanent device providing you with the ease of care and appeal in looks of a natural tooth. However, they are not indestructible.
Success rates for dental implants are high; even so, occasionally one will need a repair of one sort or another. Rarely the crown of an implant may crack or chip. If you find you have a problem with your implant, do not delay in making an appointment with Dr. Welch so he can assess the situation and make needed repairs. Unlike your natural tooth with its nerve system to alert you to a problem, the implant can sustain damage that you are unaware of. For this reason, it is important to maintain your regular dental visits so Dr. Welch can monitor the implant.
With proper care and regular exams, your implant should last a very long time. You will be happy that you made this great investment in your smile and your oral health. Contact Whispering Creek Dental today to schedule an appointment for dental implant repairs.
