Implant Restoration

 

A patient may be missing a tooth for a variety reasons, whether it is due to a planned procedure, or from the result of a sudden impact. No matter the reason, you may want to have a stable dental restoration that can provide you with a replacement chewing surface. Many types of dental devices can be supported through the use of a dental implant.

 

Dental implants are composed of titanium post that functions similar to a screw. This type of fixture is inserted into the jaw through the gums. These fixtures are designed to act as the foundation for supporting an upcoming dental restoration, such as crowns, bridges, or dentures. Implant restorations can be designed to replace one or multiple missing teeth.

 

In order to install implant into your mouth, your dentists in Pickering will need to do a surgical procedure. There is also typically a healing time required, which is to allow the jaw bone to heal around the implant.

 

Once the healing process has been completed, the dental crown or dentures can be fabricated and then fixed onto the implants. In most instances, implant supported restorations are the sturdier option for the replacement of missing teeth when compared to alternatives that use surrounding teeth for support. Dental implants have the potential to prevent bone loss that typically occurs after a tooth is removed from the gums. Additionally, there may not be alterations required for the remaining teeth depending on the fit of the device.
