Dental implants have been given the praise of being the greatest advancement in dentistry in the last century. The ability to successfully and permanently replace a tooth in order to recreate a complete, beautiful, and fully functioning smile is simply astonishing. However, dental implants are not indestructible. In the same manner in which a natural tooth can be damaged, dental implants can also become damaged, cracked, broken, or suffer from decay. If a broken implant has occurred, it is imperative that you contact Georgia Denture & Implant Specialists for proper treatment.

While it is highly unlikely that the titanium anchor inside the jaw will become damaged, it is possible for the crown of an implant to become damaged and/or for the gum tissues and bone around the implant to be damaged. Proper care of your mouth can prevent most damage from occurring. It is important that you refrain from chewing ice or biting down on hard pieces of candy, popcorn kernels, and other hard foods or objects whether you have all of your natural teeth or you have dental implants. A crack in the tooth enamel or in the dental crown of an implant can easily occur when the teeth are not treated with care.

Dental implants can also be damaged or broken due to decay and infection around the tooth. The mouth is home to millions of bacteria on any given day, and it is essential that your oral hygiene routine consists of regular brushing and daily flossing. If a dental implant is broken due to the mouth being infected by damaging bacteria, the implant will most likely need to be fully replaced in order to remove all signs of bacteria so that the health of the entire mouth is not compromised.

At Georgia Denture & Implant Specialists, we want our patients to be happy with their smiles and to take the necessary means of protecting their smiles. Dr. Warren Berne and Dr. John Anderson go to great lengths to provide the most customized care possible for all patients. If you have suffered a broken implant, we want to help you determine the best methods of preventing the same damage from occurring again in the future.

Contact Georgia Denture & Implant Specialists for all of your dental implant, tooth replacement, and denture needs. We want to help you achieve a smile that you never want to stop showing off, and maintain your smile so that it lasts a lifetime.

Dr Berne and his team are the best; professional, friendly, knowledgeable and caring. They made an uneasy process for me go very smooth. I’m so happy with my beautiful smile that his skilled hands gave me, and would recommend him to anyone looking to restore their smile too!!!

The office is very friendly and very professional. My dentist is Dr. Doug Yoon and on my very first visit he introduced me to the entire staff that would be assisting with my care, which made me feel confident that I had chosen the right practice. It has only gone uphill from there. I love that place!!
