While dental implants are the greatest advancement in dentistry within the last century, dental implants are not invincible. Just like natural teeth, dental implants can become damaged, cracked, or broken from trauma or injury. Other factors such as tooth or gum infection can also cause damage to dental implants. By taking proper care of your mouth you can prevent broken dental implants.
Because dental implants are surgically placed into the jawbone and gum tissue, they are affected by the health of your mouth. Just like natural teeth, bacteria laden plaque can cause decay and infection to occur around a dental implant. If a dental implant is broken due to the mouth area being affected by bacteria, it will require replacement to ensure that the bacteria does not compromise the health of the entire mouth.

There are different treatment options available depending on the cause of your broken dental implant. Dr. Berne and Dr. Anderson will carefully evaluate your mouth and your broken dental implant to determine how to handle your situation. If improper oral health care was the cause, once your broken dental implant is restored, it is imperative that you make the necessary changes in your habits to prevent the same issue from occurring. If your broken dental implant was caused by trauma or injury, your mouth will be fully evaluated to make sure that your new dental implant is positioned safely and effectively within the mouth to prevent long-term issues.
