Implant Restoration Q & A
What Is an Implant Restoration?
An implant restoration is a prosthesis attached to a dental implant to replace a missing tooth or teeth. Implant restorations can replace a single tooth (crown), multiple teeth (bridge), or an entire dental arch (dentures), giving you a fully restored smile and improving your oral health and aesthetic appearance.
What Is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root embedded in your jawbone where you’re missing a tooth. They're made from biocompatible substances like titanium or ceramic, which enables the implant to fuse with your bone as you heal from the procedure.
When your dental implant in Newark fuses, it creates a firm foundation for your dentist to attach your implant restoration.
What Are the Benefits of an Implant Restoration?
Unlike traditional bridges or dentures, implant restorations are directly connected to your jawbone. This makes them feel more stable, natural, and comfortable. It also makes it easier for you to chew your food and speak properly.
The direct connection to your jawbone makes implants healthier for your smile, as well. Because traditional bridges and dentures rest on top of your gums, the bone tissue in your jaw underneath doesn’t get properly stimulated, which leads to resorption, or bone loss. Implant restorations, meanwhile, keep your jawbone stimulated and healthy.
What Are The Steps in Getting an Implant Restoration?
To get an implant restoration, you first need to get dental implants in Newark. This is a process that takes multiple appointments over several months. Your dentist embeds your implant in your jawbone, then waits while your oral tissues heal and your implant fuses with your bone.
Then, your implant is fitted with an abutment. Once your abutment is in place, your dentist takes an impression of your mouth and sends it to a dental lab. The lab uses the impression to design and fabricate your restoration, taking care to ensure that it fits comfortably in your mouth.
When the lab has finished making your restoration, you come back to get it attached to your abutment. Your dentist checks that it feels comfortable in your bite and then uses dental cement to permanently bond it in place.
