Are Dental Implants Prone to Chipping and Breaking?

Are Dental Implants Prone to Chipping and Breaking?

A dentist will often opt for an implant due to its durable and long-lasting design. However, there are times when these artificial teeth can encounter physical damage. While rare, let’s look at a handful of causes.

  • Physical impact (such as playing sports) could cause a crack or chip.
  • Those who grind their teeth may inadvertently damage their implants.
  • Biting on a hard object such as a candy may cause the outer surface to crack.

“Dental implants enable you to have a beautiful smile again with all the security of a natural tooth.”

See your dentist immediately if you have cracked your dental implant.
