Implant Restoration

Implant Restoration

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.

Implant Restoration

What is a Dental Implant?

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.

Implant Restoration

A full implant restoration uses three components:

  • The implant/post: This is the metal component that merges with the bone and serves as an artificial tooth root that provides stability to the rest of the restoration.
  • The abutment: Think of the abutment as a clip that connects the metal implant post to the dental crown.
  • The crown: The dental crown is the only visible portion of an implant restoration. Dental crowns are hollowed caps made from tooth-colored material that will serve as your new permanent tooth.

How Long do Implant Restorations Last?

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.
