Implant Restoration

Dental Implant Restoration

If you’ve lost a tooth, your dentist may have recommended getting a dental implant to fill the empty space and allow for optimal function of your teeth. The dental implant itself is only a replacement for the root of the lost tooth, so after the implant has been placed, you’ll still need to get a restoration or replacement tooth. Implants provide a strong foundation for fixed (permanent) or removable replacement teeth that are made to match your natural teeth.

To make the new tooth or teeth, your Montgomery dentist will make an impression of your existing teeth, creating a model of your bite. The new restoration, most typically a crown, will be based on this model so it will blend in perfectly with the rest of your teeth. The crown is then attached to the connector point (abutment) on your implant.

Replacing a lost tooth is essential to a healthy mouth and a healthy body. It will provide you with increased aesthetics of course, but will also improve your speech, ease of eating, and oral hygiene.

Dental Implant Types

Full Mouth Implants

Patients that have to replace their full upper and/or lower teeth are eligible for full mouth implants. Typically, the oral surgeon will place 4 implants and connect a full arch of teeth.

Multiple Implants

At times, a patient may only be missing a few teeth and have rather healthy gums making multiple implants the best choice. During your dental implant procedure, two fixtures are implanted with the crown attached and leaving the healthy teeth intact. Not many people are candidates for multiple implants which is why a full mouth implant procedure may be a better choice.

Single-Tooth Implants

If you may have lost a single tooth from a periodontal disease or accident and only one tooth was affected then you would be a candidate for single-tooth implants. Keep in mind, your new dental implant will function and look just like your other teeth.
