Implant Restoration for Missing Teeth
Here are some of the benefits to choosing dental implant restoration to replace your missing or damaged teeth:
Effective solution for your missing teeth
Dental implants have become the most popular cosmetic option for replacing missing teeth. Implants are a permanent natural looking option to fill single or multiple spaces in your mouth, and they require no special care or maintenance. A dental implant is surgically installed prosthetic tooth that fits into your jawbone just like the roots of your natural teeth. The crown of the implant is custom made to match the shade and size of your natural teeth, so the end result is a restored smile. The stability of the implant is vital so your dentist may need to make sure your bone is strong enough to support the prosthetic by performing a bone graft procedure. The timing of these procedures may be spaced out to ensure the success of the implant so you and your dentist will devise an implant restoration treatment plan.
There Are Three Parts to Your Implant Restoration
The implant is a titanium post that fits into the jawbone like the roots of your teeth. The abutment, a small titanium, gold or porcelain connector, is attached to the implant above the gum line. The abutment connects the implant securely to the crown or restoration, this is the custom-made prosthetic tooth that matches the natural shade and shape of your teeth. The crown is usually made with porcelain and metal alloy.
Depending on your unique needs the time it takes to complete an implant restoration procedure can take anywhere from five to twelve months. If you need a bone graft to ensure the integrity of the implant, this can extend the time it takes to complete the implant. The goal is a permanent restorative solution, so your dentist will give your jaw bone enough time to heal and fuse with the bone graft material for a stable implant. Implant restorations require a commitment of time, but the results are worth it if you’re looking for a permanent solution for your missing teeth that looks natural.
