Missing Implants Treatment
When a crown or bridge fails or breaks there can be a temptation to leave the situation unattended, because of a concern over the cost to fix the problem.
Your dentist will advise against this, not because they want you to spend money with them, but because the amount of other damage that can happen to, not just your implants but other surrounding teeth can mean you do irreparable damage by leaving them unprotected. Infections in the jawbone itself from leaving implants unprotected can leave you with no treatment options and serious facial disfigurement.
It’s important to consult a dentist as soon as anything goes wrong with your implants, dental crowns or bridges, so that they can give you options; even if it’s only to help you with a special new cleaning and hygiene routine.
