Dental Implant Restoration
What is a dental implant restoration?
Dental implant restoration is a treatment used to replace one or more missing teeth. It involves installing a dental implant that will act as an artificial root. This can then support a crown, a bridge, or partial or complete dentures. Here are the steps of this surgical procedure.

Dental Implant Restoration Principles and Procedures
The first step in dental implant restoration is installing the dental implant to replace the root of the tooth. This is inserted into the jaw bone by an oral surgeon. The operation requires local anaesthesia. If the bone is too thin to accommodate the implant, the dentist may then recommend a bone and/or gum graft. Learn more about gum disease treatments.
The dental implant must then gradually weld itself to the bone. This process is known as osseointegration and lasts from 3 to 6 months. The recovery time may vary according to the technique used, the quality of the bone, and the type of restoration planned.
The Types of Dental Restoration
The type of implant restoration depends on the number of teeth to be replaced. If you only have a single tooth to be replaced, the dentist will recommend dental crowns or dental bridges which are screwed directly onto the implant. This will be designed to blend perfectly into your smile.
If you need to have several adjacent teeth replaced, the dentist will recommend dentures on implants, an imitation of the teeth and gums in appearance. These dentures are firmly anchored to two or more implants.
What are the benefits of a dental implant restoration?
There are many advantages to dental restorations. Implants are durable and can stay in place for several years or even decades. They offer excellent stability to all types of restoration. This makes them more comfortable in the mouth. This will allow you to fully regain your chewing ability. In the event of a breakage, only the restoration will need to be repaired or replaced.
The implant and the restoration also fit discreetly into the mouth. They are more aesthetically beautiful with their natural appearance. The implant continues to stimulate the jaw bone, so there is less loss of bone density over the years.
What are the contraindications for dental implant restoration?
The dental implant restoration may be contraindicated for specific health problems, such as diabetes. The anatomy of the jaw bone must also allow the implants to be placed in the correct position to accommodate fixed dentures or a crown.
