Dental Implant Restorations
One of the reasons dental implants are so popular for restoring missing teeth is their similarity to natural teeth. They appear and function like natural teeth, giving you back a complete smile. However, like natural teeth, they need maintenance and ongoing dental care to stay healthy. At Dunwoody Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we not only offer implant dentistry but help our patients maintain their implants for many years to come.
Dental implants do not decay like natural teeth, but they can have many other issues that need repair or restoration. They can crack, chip or break like natural teeth due to trauma. In some cases, a dental implant may need to be completely restored. This can include additional oral surgery to repair or replace the titanium post. The dental crown may need replacement if it is broken or cracked. Our team can restore most dental implants, making them look as good or better than new.
Your natural teeth alert you when you need a repair with pain. Dental implants do not have nerve roots like natural teeth, so you may not know you need a repair unless it is a visible problem. Our dental implant patients need regular checkups to ensure their dental implants are in good shape and healthy. We carefully examine the dental implants through x-rays and physical inspections to ensure they are healthy. If an implant needs a repair, we can fix it at our office and help you maintain your beautiful smile.
Dental implants are an investment in your health and appearance.
