A dental implant restoration is the visible part of your dental implant. The implant itself is a rod of titanium that’s surgically placed into your gums, and it won’t be visible when your treatment is over. The restoration, on the other hand, is the visible dental prosthetic that will be used to restore one or more of your missing teeth. There are a few common types of implant restorations.
Dental crowns are used for single-tooth restorations. They are similar to the crowns used to cover up and repair missing teeth, and are made out of tooth-like porcelain. With one or more dental crowns, you can easily replace one or more missing teeth.
Traditional bridges are supported by healthy “abutment teeth.” Implant-supported bridges, on the other hand, use two implants to support a dental bridge, which can replace 2-3 or more adjacent missing teeth.
It’s possible to use 4-6 dental implants in the upper or lower arch of teeth to hold a set of implant-supported dentures. These dentures snap onto the implants and are held in place tightly, so they look, feel, and function more naturally compared to traditional dentures, which are held in place over the gums using only friction and dental adhesive.
"I would highly recommend Oakbrook Dental and Dr. Habib Rahemtulla to individuals and families for their dental care and treatment. I would also like to give high praises to my dental hygienist, Kelly Skladanek. She is very gentle, super friendly, thorough and professional. She will educate you on proper dental care and hygiene while thoroughly cleaning your teeth. Oakbrook Dental is the BEST!!"
Oakbrook Dental was such a great experience. When I first stepped foot into the office, Kim and Judy had a smile on their face and greeted me so kindly. I then met my dental assistant Laura who made me feel very relaxed and calm at my visit. She made sure I was comfortable throughout the whole appointment which I very much appreciate being as anxious as I am. I then met Dr. Patel who was amazing. She is very knowledgeable and passionate about what she does and she made me feel very comfortable as well. I would recommend OakBrook Dental to everyone I know! :)
The dental implant restoration process usually begins after your dental implants have been placed by Dr. Patel or Dr. Major. As your mouth heals and recovers over the next 3-6 months and the implant integrates with your jaw bone, you will come in for several follow-up appointments at our office.
During these appointments, Dr. Patel or Dr. Major will take impressions and digital images of your teeth and your dental implants. This information will be used to develop and build your permanent dental implant restoration.
Once your implants are mostly healed, a dental lab will build your restoration and send it back to Oakbrook Dental for final placement. When it’s time to place your permanent restoration, you’ll come into our office. Dr. Patel or Dr. Major will check it to ensure the fit is perfect, and then will attach the dental implant restoration to your implant to restore your smile.
There are two reasons. Either you have a new dental implant that has not yet been completed, or you have an older dental implant and your previous dental implant restoration has failed.
While dental implants will usually last for the rest of your life, dental implant restorations like crowns, bridges, and dentures may require replacement every 10-15 years, depending on how well you care for your teeth and a number of other factors.
