Dental implants are constantly being improved. The technology that is available now for implant dentistry has advanced, creating more natural, durable dental implants compared to even just several years ago. Many people who received dental implants in the past may need restorations to replace implants that have become loose or no longer appear natural. Dr. Atencio can restore these implants using the latest technology and procedures, giving you a higher quality dental implant in their place.
Just like natural teeth, dental implants can need repairs. The crowns that cover the titanium posts can be chipped, crack or come loose, requiring repair or replacement. Even the posts can become loose, especially when impacted due to trauma. Since dental implants are not connected to nerve roots like natural teeth, you may not even know there is a problem with your implant unless it is visually obvious. It is important to schedule regular exams to have your dental implants inspected in case one needs a repair.
Protect the investment into your new teeth with regular visits to see Dr. Atencio for dental implant maintenance. We offer dental implant restorations and repairs at our relaxing, comfortable office in Reno. We accept most dental insurance plans and we have convenient payment options available.
