Implant Based Restoration
An implant-based restoration is a tooth replacement method that involves the placement of a replacement tooth and the insertion of an implant and an abutment. An implant is a surgical post that is placed above or below the missing tooth or teeth in the jawbone. This can be done either surgically or by the patient themselves. It performs the function of the restoration’s basis in its entirety. A strong connection is made between the restoration and the implant through the use of an abutment, which is attached to the implant. After everything is said and done, the abutment is secured for dental implant restoration. Depending on the number of teeth that need to be replaced, the restoration may consist of a dental crown, a dental bridge, or a full or partial denture.
When should I start considering getting an implant-based restoration?
Anyone who is missing one or more teeth, has good oral health, and is willing and able to undergo a minor surgical procedure and a brief recovery period in order to place dental implants is a good candidate for a dental implant restoration. Despite the fact that they are more invasive than traditional dentures or fixed bridges, patients who want a solution that will last the longest prefer implant-based restorations. The fact that they are fixed and cannot be removed is why many patients prefer them because it simplifies maintenance and cleaning.
How does the actual process of treatment take place?
Those who are considering getting dental implant restoration can get the process started by making an appointment for a consultation with a general dentist who offers the service. Before implant placement, the patient may need to undergo a bone grafting procedure or treatment for periodontal disease if they have experienced significant bone loss. Alternatively, the patient may need to undergo treatment for periodontal disease. After the mouth has been prepared, the implant will be inserted, and it will take several months for the implant to heal and integrate with the jawbone. After the patient’s mouth has had time to heal, the abutment and restoration that were removed are reattached to finish the process of tooth replacement.
