Dental Implant Restoration Specialist
Dental Implant Restoration
If you chip, crack, or otherwise damage a crown that is attached to a dental implant, a dental implant restoration can prevent further damage and restore your chewing and biting abilities
At Silicon Valley Center for Cosmetic Dentistry in Sunnyvale, California, Gabriel Cano, DDS, and his caring team regularly provide dental implant restoration services. If one or more of your implant crowns needs a repair, schedule an appointment. Call the office and speak with a friendly team member.
Dental implant restoration is a restorative dentistry procedure used to repair damaged dental implants. If you have dental implants and experience trauma due to an automobile accident, sports-related injury, or sudden impact, a dental implant restoration can correct the problem and restore your smile to a healthy condition.
If you damage one or more of your dental implants, remain calm, and act as quickly as possible. If you can, try and pick up any pieces of your damaged crowns, bridge, or implant-supported dentures and put them in a container. Next, call the team at Silicon Valley Center for Cosmetic Dentistry. While you’re on the phone, explain the events leading up to the accident and if you were able to collect any pieces.
Dental implant restoration is similar to getting a dental crown. During your appointment, your Silicon Valley Center for Cosmetic Dentistry provider conducts an oral exam and assesses the damage. Afterward, they take a mold of your mouth and send it to a dental laboratory that manufactures a new crown, bridge, or set of implant-supported dentures. If you damage the metal post itself or it becomes loose, additional surgery may be necessary, and Dr Cano and his team will need to refer you to an specialist. Although the team at Silicon Valley Center for Cosmetic Dentistry doesn’t perform implant surgery themselves, they can refer you to an specialist in the area who does. Following surgery, they coordinate care with your specialist to place a completed crown to the surgically implanted abutment.
Accidents and injuries happen, but there are steps you can take to protect your dental implants. The team at Silicon Valley Center for Cosmetic Dentistry recommends wearing a mouthguard whenever you play sports or participate in physical activity. You should also avoid bad habits like chewing on ice or biting your fingernails. If you grind your teeth or clench your jaws during sleep, you may want to have a custom night guard made. Dr. Cano and his team are happy to submit a pre-authorization to your insurance to find out if it is covered under your insurance plan.
