More about Dental Implant Restoration

A dental implant has three parts, the first of which is the dental implant screw—the part that is embedded in your jaw. This crew functions as the “root” of your missing tooth. Although problematic circumstances are rare, the implant area may fail to heal completely because of uncontrolled diabetes, tobacco use, or other issues. Treatment for dental implant failures of this type is s simple reinsertion procedure.

The second part is the abutment, which attaches the crown to the dental implant screw. The last part of the dental implant is the dental implant crown, which is placed after the dental implant area has healed completely. Dental implant crowns can break, especially if you grind/clench your teeth. You can prevent breakage from this habit by wearing a custom-made nightguard while you sleep.

If your dental implant screw breaks, don’t worry! Just contact Dr. Mui as soon as you can. He can place a wider, more supportive screw to restore the use of your dental implant. If you break your implant crown, it can also be replaced in order to restore the beauty and stability of your smile.
