If you've experienced the loss of a tooth, dental implant restoration could be the ideal solution. This treatment involves inserting an artificial root into your jawbone, then allowing it to integrate into the bone over several months, after which a new, perfectly matching tooth is placed. With dental implant restoration, you can restore function and aesthetics to your smile.
What are the Steps of Dental Implant Restoration?
There are several steps involved in dental implant restoration.
- First, your dentist will establish the exact location of the implant post, considering all relevant anatomical and physiological considerations.
- After, the implant will be surgically inserted into the jawbone and left to heal for several months so that it can integrate with the jawbone.
- Then, after the implants have had enough time for integration with the jawbone, the abutment is attached. This is an important step as it will provide stability for the crown.
- Finally, a custom-made dental crown is designed and fitted on top of the abutment and secured with a special glue or screw, completing the restorative dental procedure.
