DENTAL IMPLANT RESTORATION

Dental implants are favored over bridges and dentures as they are seen as a permanent and aesthetic solution to the problem of missing teeth. Plus they are strong and durable and fit in well with a busy lifestyle. The term ‘restoration’ is used to refer to a false tooth. This tooth is then attached to the implant and looks and behaves in the same way as a natural tooth.

RESTORATION OF CROWNS

A restoration can involve a single tooth or several teeth, many of which can be attached to a single implant. The implant is inserted into the jaw and allowed to fuse with the bone in a process called osseointegration.
R
This process takes anywhere from 3 to 6 months.
R
Once the gum has healed and fusion has taken place the implant is then ready for the attachment of a metal abutment. This device acts as an anchor for the restoration. There are several types of abutments which are designed to blend in with your natural teeth.
R
The dentist will take an impression of your teeth using a mould which contains dental putty. You will be asked to bite into this putty so that the dentist has an imprint of your teeth.
R
This impression is sent to a laboratory for them to produce your new restoration. You will be fitted with a temporary restoration during this time.
This process is the same for both a single crown and multiple crowns.
