Dental Implants Are a Great OptionDental implants are an excellent option if you have had to undergo a tooth extraction or have simply lost a tooth some other way. While they may not work for everyone, implants are a great way to get your mouth back on its A-game. Through surgery, a small synthetic piece is implanted into your mouth and your jaw. A false tooth can be connected to this piece and can restore your mouth to full functionality. It is important to bridge the gap of a missing tooth since the gap can cause other problems, such as shifting teeth or infection in the gums. Talk with one of our dentists to see if this is a good option for you.
Restoring Your Implants to New LifeEven though implants can last a long time, eventually, they do get worn down. When it comes to replacing or repairing implants. Embree Dentistry knows what they are doing. The implant piece that resides in your jaw is usually placed there and remains there for life. However, the tooth part that sits in your mouth may need a bit of help over time.
There are a couple of key things to look for if you think it may be time for a new crown. One of these is color. The rest of your teeth will continue changing color with age, and if you notice that your crown does not match the rest of your teeth, you may consider a new crown for cosmetic appearances.
On the opposite side of things, if you decide to get your teeth whitened, this may also be a good time to get a newer, whiter crown to match the rest of your newly brightened smile. Sometimes, there are general imperfections other than color that can inspire you to get a new crown. Maybe you chipped it, or the screw for your screwed crown is showing in a way that you don't want it to. These could also lead you to go in for help in restoring the life of your implant.
Whether you are going to get one or need to change up one you already have, Embree Dentistry can find the perfect fit for you. We can work with you to achieve your smile goals and to upkeep the health and well-being of your mouth. Be sure to remember that no matter what, you need to maintain strict oral hygiene routines to prepare or to take care of your implant.
