Implant Restoration


Implant Restoration

Although it doesn’t happen often, dental implants can become damaged. It could result from the implant not bonding sufficiently to the jawbone, or the jawbone itself could be the problem. If your implant becomes cracked, chipped, or feels loose, it’s time to visit Zsambeky, Chaney, & Associates for implant restoration.

How Can Implants Become Damaged?

Dental implants are known for their durability and longevity, but like any dental restoration, they can be susceptible to damage in certain circumstances. Here are some potential ways dental implants can get damaged:

  • Trauma or injury
  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Teeth grinding (bruxism)
  • Untreated dental issues
  • Smoking and tobacco use
  • Insufficient bone support
  • Improper bite alignment

What to do if Your Implant is Damaged

Do not attempt to self-diagnose a problem with your implant or fix it yourself. As an implant post is surgically placed into the jawbone, it should only be done by a dental professional. Attempting to fix it yourself could cause worse problems, including damage to the underlying jawbone.

It's important to note that while dental implants can be damaged, proper care, regular dental check-ups, and maintenance can significantly minimize the risk. If you have dental implants, it's crucial to follow good oral hygiene practices, wear mouthguards during physical activities, and address any dental issues promptly to ensure the longevity and success of your implants.

How Our Doctors Repair Implants

Exact implant restoration will depend on how it is damaged. If the problem is only with the crown, we can repair or replace it without doing anything to the implant post. The repair process becomes more complex when the damage is to the implant or post.  We’d have to remove the implant from your jawbone, which may require surgery. After a healing period, a new implant can be placed if the jawbone is healthy enough.
