Dental implants are meant to be a permanent replacement for teeth and have a high success rate.
Once an implant is attached to the bone, it becomes a new “root” for the crown. The crown fills in the space in your mouth from a missing tooth.
Caring for an implant is the same as caring for your natural teeth. However, there are situations where patients have a problem with the implant, where it comes loose or is chipped and an implant restoration is needed.
If you are concerned about an implant, schedule an appointment with your Summerville dentist who will determine if an implant restoration is needed.
