How Are Implants Restored?

The visible portion of your dental implant is known as a restoration. Depending on the type and number of implants placed, this could be a crown or a complete prosthetic. How are dental implants restored? Will steps be taken to ensure the new tooth or teeth blend with the smile and reflect a patient’s unique facial structure?

What are the Restorations Made From?

We use ceramic for a number of reasons. First, the material mimics the translucent natural of tooth enamel, ensuring the restoration blends with the rest of the smile. The material is also strong, with the ability to withstand pressure and bite forces. Finally, ceramic is stain-resistant, staying bright and resisting discoloration.

Placement

After the implant is healed and bonded with the jawbone, a process known as osseointegration, we add an abutment to the implant. We use the abutment to hold the custom-made restoration in place. At this stage, the tooth will be complete and look natural. However, if you are receiving a prosthetic, the completed denture or bridge will snap onto the multiple implant posts, securing your new prosthetic.

Maintaining Your New Tooth

Once the restoration is added, you should care for it as you would a natural tooth. You should always brush your teeth twice a day and floss every night before going to bed. You should also make time to visit the dentist every six months for a checkup and cleaning, during which the doctor will monitor your new tooth. Routine care protects your smile from periodontal disease and decay, which could threaten your new tooth’s stability. With proper care and attention, you can expect your new tooth to potentially last a lifetime.
