Dental implants are very similar to your own natural teeth, which also means they can need to be restored or repaired. Just like your own teeth, they can be chipped or cracked from trauma or hard foods, requiring a trip to the dentist for treatment. With our restorative dentistry options at Meridian Campus Family Dental, we offer implant dentistry for completing implants, as well as restoring and repairing them when they become damaged.
The big difference in a dental implant problem and a natural tooth issue is that you may not know the damage is there until you see it. A natural tooth will cause pain when it is damaged, while an implant does not have a nerve root to tell you it has become cracked or chipped. This is a good reason to continue regular visits to your dentist to have checkups on your implants, just like your natural teeth. If there are any problems, you can have your implants restored before they cause issues with your bite or smile.
