A dentist will often recommend an implant if you have a missing tooth. While these replacement teeth are quite durable, they can crack on occasion. Why might this occur and how can you protect these implants to extend their longevity?

– Implants can become damaged due to a sudden impact

– If you accidentally bite something very hard you can damage your implant.

– If you suffer from bruxism (teeth grinding), your implant can get damaged. Wear a mouthpiece for protection.

“Dental crowns can become damaged from an injury such as a contact sport hit or a fall.”
