What is Dental Implant Restoration?
Dental implant restoration is a procedure that replaces missing teeth via artificial teeth. An implant is a surgical post, often made of metal (manufactured out of titanium), that is placed into the jawbone either above or below the lost teeth. This may be done either surgically or non-surgically and acts as the foundation upon which the restoration is built. An implant is a more permanent treatment than a bridge in this situation.
Dental Implant Restoration Procedure
If you are considering getting dental implant restoration, it is essential to understand the treatment procedure. The more you learn about it, the more equipped you will be to make the best choice for both your physical well-being and self-image.
Step One: Attaching the Post
First, you will be numbed to create an incision in the gums. The next step is to drill posts or titanium implants that look like screws deep into the jaw. These will provide the new porcelain crown the stability it needs to replace the lost tooth. After that, any incisions to stop bleeding will be stitched up. The gums will recover over the following months, and the posts will permanently attach to the jawbone.
Step Two: Placing the Crown
The new crown is fabricated using imprints taken from your teeth and colored to blend in with the rest of your smile. The completed crown of the prosthetic tooth looks just like your real tooth and is attached to the pillar using dental cement. Since smoking is associated with a significantly increased risk of implant failure, dental implants are not the ideal choice for individuals actively engaged in smoking. To ensure your new dental implant lasts as long as possible, you must clean and floss your teeth properly. Dental implants can last as long as 25 years.
After the Procedure
Once the procedure is over, Janice K. Pliszczak, DDS and Dr. Pliszczak may give you an aftercare routine that you must follow. Following their instructions will ensure that you give special care to the wound during the healing process to let it heal properly and let the implant set correctly.
