The reason dental implants are so popular for restorative dentistry is their natural appearance and function. Since they are a permanent addition to your smile, they also require ongoing care just like natural teeth. Good oral hygiene is required, and routine checkups are needed to maintain their health. Like natural teeth, they can need repair or restoration. At Garrisonville Dental, we are your dental implant specialists in Stafford, offering dental implant surgery and maintenance for your dental implants once they are in place.
Dental implants have been used for decades, which means many of our patients have implants that are 10-20 years old. Trauma, disease and other factors can affect dental implants just like natural teeth. If a dental implant needs replacement or restoration, we can help. We can replace older implants to improve their appearance and function. We also offer bone grafting for implants that have become loose or need additional bone support.
Dental implants can need repair, just like natural teeth. While they will not decay like natural teeth, they can be cracked or chipped. Our implant dentists can repair broken or loose dental implants to restore them for function and appearance. We can replace the dental crown if needed, giving you a new tooth on your implant post.
Dental implants require maintenance and checkups. Since dental implants do not have a nerve root like natural teeth, you may not know there is a problem unless it is visible. It is important to continue coming in for regular checkups, so our dentists can examine your implants and repair any issues that occur.
Dental implants are a significant investment in your appearance and oral health. Our team at Garrisonville Dental can help you protect that investment with our dental implant restoration, repair and maintenance services.
