Although dental implants are designed to provide a lifetime’s wear, just like regular teeth, they can be damaged. Cracks, chips or even breakages can occur in the crown, or cap, of the tooth. The titanium post that the dentist uses to secure them in place is rarely damaged.
To prevent dental implant damage:
– Don’t use your teeth as tools to crack nuts, open bottles, etc.
– Wear a mouth guard to prevent bruxism (teeth grinding)
– Get regular dental check ups
“Although the crown on dental implants does have the potential to chip, taking care of your smile ensures your dental implant will be in good standing for life!”
