As far as dental restorations go, implants are the closest thing to a natural tooth. However, just like natural teeth, they are also susceptible dental implantsto damage and breaks from time to time. If your dental implant fractures or you are experiencing other problems like pain or signs of an infection, the first thing to do is to schedule an appointment with your dentist. Dr. Mark Boukzam, a dentist in Deerfield Beach, FL, offers a range of restoration options, whether you need to repair an existing implant, or are looking to get dental implants for the first time.

Dental Implant Restoration in Deerfield Beach, FL

Dental implants have a very high success rate (over 95%) and are the longest lasting and most durable restoration option for tooth loss, from a single tooth to a complete set of dentures. With good oral hygiene and regular follow up care with a dentist, the chances that you will experience problems with your implants are very rare. But accidents do happen from time to time. Because implants consist of several parts (the implant, an abutment and the cosmetic crown), the process involved in repairing it will depend on whether the crown or implant itself becomes damaged. If the crown is damaged it can be replaced without removing the implant. If the implant or abutment are damaged, they may need to be removed and replaced.

There are a few things that can go wrong with a dental implant:

  • Chip/break in the cosmetic crown
  • Bend or break in the implant or abutment screw (where the implant attaches to the cosmetic crown)
  • Peri-implantitis (the implant becomes infected)
  • The implant does not fuse properly with the jawbone (osseointegration failure) and becomes loose or falls out completely)

Working with a dentist skilled and experienced in dental implants and maintaining your oral health is the best way to avoid potential complications with your implants.
