Dental Implant Restorations
As a sophisticated solution for replacing missing teeth, dental implant restorations refer to a false tooth that is attached to a dental implant. Remarkably, this restorative dentistry treatment behaves like a natural tooth and even takes on a natural-looking appearance. Thus, an implant-restored tooth is comprised of several parts. These include the dental implant itself, the abutment and the restoration.
As the final component, the crown restoration is the part that looks like a natural tooth. It is typically made of porcelain fused to alloy, though it may be completely porcelain in structure. Essentially, the restoration is screwed or cemented to the abutment. Dental implant restorations are a promising alternative to dental implant repairs and for patients who are unable to support a dental crown or dentures alone.

Given their high success rate, dental implants provide ultimate stability and long-term success for many patients. Yet, they are not immune to problems here and there, particularly with the bone or gum. In turn, some implants may become loose or damaged, and trauma and disease may also affect the integrity of dental implants. The problem is that implants do not contain nerves, so patients may not know that there’s a problem. Thus, it’s important to stay on top of regular dental visits and checkups.
