Dental implant restorations offer a permanent and secure solution in tooth replacement. Dental implant restorations have the power to not only improve the aesthetics of your smile, but also the function of your teeth. If you are looking for a Denver cosmetic dentist for your dental implant restoration, we welcome you to schedule a consultation at University Dental Arts. In the meantime, here is an overview to help you decide if dental implant restorations are right for you.
Types of Dental Implant Restorations
Dental implants are surgically placed titanium posts, which act as a replacement tooth root. Dental implant restorations are attached to these posts to restore the look and function of your teeth. There are different types of dental implant restorations available to meet your specific needs. Dental implant restorations include single crowns to full sets of dentures.
For those only missing one or two teeth, dental crowns are a suitable option in dental implant restoration treatment. The process for using dental crowns for dental implant restoration includes surgically placing the dental implant post within the missing tooth socket of the jaw. The jaw is allowed time to heal and once healed, a permanent bond is formed between the bone and implant. Once fully healed, generally a few months later, the dental crown will be attached to the titanium post with an abutment to complete the treatment.
Implant-supported dental bridges are another option in dental implant restorations. Implant-supported bridges are generally used to replace two or three adjacent teeth. With implant-supported bridges, a dental implant is placed to support the bridge. The bridge, which consists of two or three artificial teeth, will be attached to the implant to fill the space between the missing teeth . In cases when multiple teeth are missing, dental implants may be used to secure both ends of the bridge.
For those requiring dentures, or, already wearing dentures, dental implant-supported dentures are a great option. Implant-supported dentures provide a secure, comfortable fit so you can eat your favorite foods and go about your daily activities with confidence. Implant-supported dentures attach within the mouth with three to five implants using either a metal stud or bar attachment. Implant-supported dentures can be removed for cleaning but will stay firmly in place while you eat and speak.
