I Cracked My Dental Implant, Now What

Implant crowns can crack for a variety of reasons. One of the most common reasons for a crack is the food you eat. For example, hard foods are more likely to cause a crown to crack, so if you chew on a hard food in the wrong way, it could lead to dental damage.

 However, some dental crowns can weaken over time and damage for seemingly no reason. If your dental crown cracks, you may experience serious pain as the worn-out tooth or gum is re-exposed. You should try to schedule dental implant restoration in Norman, OK as soon as you can after you crack an implant crown.
