By and large, dental implants have a very high success rate. Dental technology in restorative dentistry has made great strides within the last several years that have increased the durability and aesthetic quality of implants. Functionality of current implants is superior to those that were first placed. Newer implants also have more aesthetic appeal in that they look even more realistic than their predecessors. Even so, there are times when an implant will have problems that need to be addressed. This is particularly true for older implants. When you think your implant is no longer functioning as well as it did, it is time to make an appointment with us at Pearl Dental Care to have it examined.
It is important to have your implants inspected on a regular basis so that any anomalies can be addressed early on. Your natural teeth can tell you when something is wrong. They may tingle and you may feel pain when you have decay or if your tooth is damaged in some way. Implants will not decay; however, things can happen to them and the area surrounding them that may compromise their functionality. If the crown should break on your implant, chances are you would notice. You would make an appointment to come in and get it repaired. Occasionally other problems arise with implants that are not so noticeable. Your dentist will examine your implants during your regular dental checkups; however, if you suspect a problem, be sure to call right away.
