The design of a dental implant is based on the natural tooth, and like a natural tooth, an implant can be damaged. Dental implants can last for many years, even decades, but they do need maintenance and can require repairs like natural teeth. If your dental implant is loose or the abutment is damaged, you need an implant specialist for a repair or restoration. First Smile Family Dental offers advanced implant dentistry, including dental implant restorations and repairs at our clinic in Federal Way, WA.

Dental implants can include multiple components. The post is usually made from titanium and inserted into the jawbone. An abutment may be attached to the post that connects to a dental crown, bridgework or a denture. When a dental implant fails or becomes loose, it may require a restoration of the entire device. This can include removing and replacing the post or it may require a bone graft to stimulate bone growth around the implant. If components are damaged, they can also require replacements. Dr. Nguyen is an implant expert, offering complete dental implant restorations and repairs for all types of implants.

Implant Repairs

The most common implant problems are with the attached components. Dental crowns can be damaged and may need repairs or replacements. Abutments can malfunction or be damaged from injuries. If you have a dental implant that is damaged or needs repair, our dental team has the newest dental technology and implant hardware to perform your restoration. From replacing cracked crowns to repairing abutments and implant denture attachments, we can perform the needed repairs on your implant restoration.

Dental implants need ongoing maintenance to keep them in good condition. It is important to have your implants routinely examined to detect any problems or damage. Considering the investment, you want to keep your dental implants maintained to ensure they last for the rest of your lifetime.

If you have a problem with a dental implant, contact us at First Smile Family Dental in Federal Way to schedule a dental implant exam if you need a dental implant restoration or repair.

  • Susan C.

    I absolutely LOVE Dr. Nguyen! She was kind, compassionate, and exactly what I need in a dentist! She made me feel comfortable right away and genuinely cared about me as a person, AND the health of my teeth!

  • Terry H.

    From the time my husband and I walked in the door to walking out it was absolutely amazing!! The care from the receptionist to the technician to the dentist was without a doubt the most professional caring understanding staff. I am not one who enjoys the dentist but they made it so that I was very relaxed and look forward to going again.

  • Kyle G.

    Top of the line customer service from the front desk to the dental chair. Really happy with not only the doctor, but her assistant and everyone that worked there. The cleaning was expertly done, all photos and decisions were thoughtfully explained and I learned new things about my teeth that I did not know before.

  • Teo T.
