An implant restoration reestablishes missing teeth with surgically-rooted artificial devices. These procedures can either restore a single missing tooth or be used as part of a multi-tooth replacement procedure. At Central Family Dentistry, we use high-quality materials and advanced technology to deliver effective implant restorations designed to last a lifetime.
A dental implant is a medicinal device used to restore or replace a missing tooth. The implant itself is a metal post that gets screwed into the jawbone where the missing tooth used to be. Once the implant has merged with the bone in a process known as osseointegration, we may complete the rest of the restoration.
A full implant restoration uses three components:
Implant restorations are permanent procedures. This means that implants are intended to last a lifetime. The only part of the restoration that might require replacement is the dental crown. Although crowns can last decades, you should still care for them and maintain good oral hygiene. These devices typically last between 10 and 15 years before needing a replacement.
