Implant restoration is the process of creating an artificial tooth and connecting it to the implant. The crown or bridge, which will be visible in your smile, can only be attached when the soft tissue around the implant has completely healed.
Once our experienced team is confident that you are sufficiently healed, we'll proceed with the implant.
The Abutment: A small metal post called an abutment is inserted directly into the implant and attaches directly to your crown or bridge. Once it's in place, we'll take an impression of your teeth that will be used to construct your custom-made crown or bridge.
Temporary Crown or Bridge: A temporary crown or bridge will be attached to the abutment until your custom-fitted crown is ready.
Ready? When your custom-made crown is available, another short appointment is required to place it onto your abutment and ensure that it fits comfortably into your smile.
Dental implants not only provide a natural looking, permanent solution to missing teeth they can also help prevent bone loss. Patients with dentures face certain food restrictions. With dental implants, our patients can enjoy a wide variety of foods such as raw vegetables or nuts without limitation, ensuring a healthy diet need not be compromised due to a limited ability to chew.
The goal of the crown or bridge is to blend seamlessly into your natural smile. Every patient's smile is different, so every crown and bridge is different. Our knowledgeable dental team will rely on their many years of experience to select a shade and shape of a crown or bridge that will be most aesthetically pleasing and functional in your smile.
Dental implants are very durable and if well cared for, should last you a lifetime. You should care for your implant as you care for your natural teeth with daily brushing and flossing and regular check-ups and cleanings. Our friendly and knowledgeable team will be happy to discuss proper care of implants and answer any questions you may have.
If you are missing teeth due to age, accident or decay, and want a permanent solution to restore your beautiful smile, you might be a candidate for dental implants. Our experienced team will be pleased to meet with you to discuss whether dental implants are right for you.
