Dental implants are highly durable and yet, they are not impervious to damage on occasion. When should you see a dentist and are there any habits to avoid?
- Never employ your teeth as "levers" to open bottles or plastic packages.
- Grinding your teeth can cause your dental implants to wear down prematurely.
- If your implant does happen to become cracked, a temporary crown may be used.
"If your dentist office can’t make the crown that same day, you’ll get a temporary crown in the meantime."
