What Is Dental Implant Restoration?

A dental implant is an ideal tooth restoration for people who are missing one or more teeth as a result of injury, periodontal disease, or any other reason. A dental implant is a metal post that a periodontist or oral surgeon surgically positions into the jaw. Once in place and bone surrounding the implant has had time to heal, a replacement tooth is attached to the post.

While implants are typically more expensive than other methods of tooth replacement, they provide superior benefits.

  • Durability and Longevity: Implants, if properly cared for, last 10-20 years.
  • Natural Feeling: Implants are designed to look and feel like your natural teeth.
  • Better Oral Health: Implants stay in place, ensuring that your other teeth do not move or shift.

What Is The Process Of Dental Implant Restoration at Topping Dental Group Nappanee?

To help you prepare for your implant restoration, here’s what you should expect:

  • Consultation: One of our dentists will conduct a thorough examination, including X-rays, to assess your oral health, jawbone density, and suitability for the implant.
  • Implant Placement: The initial surgery involves making an incision in the gum tissue to access the underlying bone. The dentist will drill a hole and carefully place the titanium post (implant) into the jawbone. The gum tissue is then sutured closed.
  • Osseointegration: This critical period involves the integration of the implant with the surrounding jawbone, creating a strong foundation for the artificial tooth.
  • Crown Placement: Once osseointegration is complete, the dentist performs a minor procedure to attach the abutment, a small connector, to the implant, and then the dentist places the custom-made artificial crown, securing it to the abutment.
  • Follow Up Appointments: Once the implant restoration is complete, the dentist may make minor adjustments to ensure the proper fit and function of the new teeth. Regular dental check-ups and good oral hygiene practices are essential for maintaining long-term oral health and the longevity of the implant restoration.
