Prosthetics: How To Track Their Wear

When you receive your dental crown, dental bridge, denture, etc., the initial experience is a pristine one. Everything fits beautifully. The materials are brand new. They crown or device looks exceptional and functions wonderfully. However, you may wonder to yourself how you’re supposed to know if it’s becoming damaged, if it’s wearing out, if you need a new one, or if everything is just fine. Keeping up with the integrity of your dental work is always a wise decision! As for how to accomplish this feat, we can assist you.

See Us For Visits

We generally ask that you allow us to guide you on this topic. The last thing we want is for you to obsess and worry about your prosthetic dental work on a daily basis. Instead, we encourage you to schedule your visits as we suggest for everyone. During preventive appointments, during which you receive a cleaning and checkup, we can take a look, keep an eye on your prosthetic, and let you know if we see any signs of wear.
