Dental lab makes a beautiful CROWN that matches with your natural teeth.
IMPLANT ABUTMENT is the connector between the crown and implant.
BONE actually grows into surface of the implant to hold it securely into place.
we have found that dental implants are truly able to enhance the quality of life for our patients. Dental implants can improve our patients’ overall health, while helping them gain the confidence that comes from a well-functioning smile that looks good and feels natural.
There are many benefits to replacing missing teeth with dental implant, chiefly that they:
Maintain the integrity of bone structure after tooth loss
Preserve the health of adjacent teeth, since there is no need for bridgework
Replace loose-fitting dentures
Distribute bite forces evenly throughout the mouth
Function and feel like natural teeth
Improve speaking ability when bulky dentures are eliminated
Improve facial appearance by preventing bone loss
Why Dental Implants?
Losing a tooth can be devastating, not only because it affects the way you look, but also because it can lead to other physical problems that may affect your health and prevent you from smiling with confidence. It is vitally important to replace missing teeth with dental implants promptly in order to prevent health consequences such as:
Shifting and drifting of the teeth
Alteration in the bite as a result of shifting teeth
Jaw joint problems
Difficulty in chewing properly
Additional stress on the remaining teeth
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are biocompatible titanium replacements of the tooth’s anchoring roots. Dental implants replace missing teeth by mimicking nature as closely as possible. Dental implants are fixed not removable.
Dental implant restorations have three parts:
Titanium, bone-integrated implant
Implant porcelain crown
Let’s look at a cross section of tooth and an implant together to visualize what a dental implant can provide.
What Is the Dental Implant Placement Process?
Planning stage: Planning is the most important part of the process. A carefully and intelligently thought-out treatment plan is the difference between success and failure. Sometimes we may require specialized imaging to visualize the bone condition and three-dimensional viewing to ensure proper placement.
Implant placement: our implant specialist will place the dental implant in the ideal spot to form the gum tissue around the implant.
Healing: the bone around the dental implant will grow and integrate with the new implant in a matter of a few weeks.
Temporary restoration: if the dental implant is in a readily visible area, a temporary restoration may be placed for esthetic purposes while the site heals.
Abutment placement: when healing is complete, the dental implant abutment is placed to connect the dental implant to the porcelain crown.
Porcelain crown: once our ceramist fabricates the new porcelain crown to exact specifications, we bond the crown to the abutment.
