Even the best quality dental work can eventually wear out or break down. Fortunately, in many cases, there are ways to repair the problem or refit the prosthesis, so that you can continue smiling confidently.
Here are just a few common examples that you may encounter:
Loose Implant Crown or Bridge – This is usually caused by a loose or broken screw inside the restoration. In some cases, this can be carefully removed and replaced or re-tightened. However, if the abutment itself is fractured, the entire restoration may need to be remade.
Loose Implant Overdenture (aka “snap in denture”) – With use, the color-coded snap inserts or the metallic attachments can wear out. As this happens, patients will notice that their overdenture is not quite as secure. It is quick and easy to change the color-coded inserts, and we recommend this be done every 6-12 months.
