Advancements in modern dentistry have revolutionized the way we approach tooth replacement, and dental implant restoration stands out as a transformative solution. Dental implants are lifelike and durable replacements for missing teeth, providing aesthetic benefits and restoring functionality and oral health.
At Queens Dental Design, we place dental implants, small titanium posts surgically placed into the jawbone, allowing it to be fused with the bone to create a stable and durable foundation. Once the implant has been integrated with the bone, a custom-made restoration, such as a crown, bridge, or denture, is attached, effectively replacing the missing tooth or teeth.
The Process of Implant Restoration
Your dentist or oral surgeon will first assess your oral health, review your medical history, and discuss your goals to determine if you're a suitable candidate for dental implants. A personalized treatment plan will then be created based on your unique needs.
The treatment plan will then be implemented with the placement of the dental implant into the jawbone during a minor surgical procedure. Over the next few months, the bone and implant undergo osseointegration, fusing together with the bone to create a strong foundation.
Once osseointegration is complete, an abutment is attached to the implant. The abutment serves as a connector between the implant and the final restoration. This custom restoration your dentist will have fabricated to match your natural teeth's color, shape, and size. This restoration, whether a crown, bridge, or denture, is then securely attached to the abutment.
The Benefits of Implant Restoration
Dental implants closely resemble natural teeth, helping restore your smile's beauty. Unlike traditional alternatives, implants integrate seamlessly with your existing teeth, ensuring a harmonious and natural-looking smile.
Implants function like natural teeth, enabling you to bite, chew, and speak without discomfort or limitations. This restoration of normal function makes eating and speaking a hassle-free experience.
- Preservation of Bone Structure
When teeth are lost, the underlying jawbone can deteriorate due to lack of stimulation. Dental implants provide the necessary stimulation to the bone, preventing bone loss and preserving your facial structure.
Dental implants are designed to last for many years with proper care. Dental implants offer a long-lasting solution unlike other tooth replacement options, which may require replacement after a few years.
Unlike traditional bridges, implant restorations don't require altering neighboring healthy teeth for support. This helps maintain the integrity of your remaining natural teeth and improves oral health.
Dental implant restoration offers a groundbreaking solution for individuals seeking to replace missing teeth with a natural-looking, long-lasting option. If you're considering implant restoration, visit Queens Dental Design at 80-15 164th St., 2nd Floor, Jamaica 11432, or call (718) 523-1525.
