Here’s a few things you should know if you are considering implant supported restorations from Skutak Dental:
The Foundation For Implant Supported Restorations
A dental implant is a small titanium post that is inserted in the gum and jaw tissue, replacing the original root of a missing tooth. Over a period of 3-6 months, this implant will heal. Titanium has the unique ability to bond permanently with jaw and gum tissue.
Once the implant heals, it will be used as the “foundation” for a wide variety of different restorations. The most common restoration uses a dental crown to replace a single tooth, but multiple implants can be used to support different dental prosthetics.
The Most Common Types Of
Implant Supported Restorations
There are 3 common implant supported restorations used in modern dental work:
- Dental crowns – A dental crowncan be built to match the surrounding teeth, and attached to the dental implant to restore a single missing tooth. This is the most common type of dental implant, which is why the term “dental implant” is often used synonymously with an implant-supported dental crown.
- Dental bridges – Traditional use two surrounding “abutment” teeth to support several false teeth. Implant supported bridges use two dental bridges, rather than existing teeth. This may be preferable in some cases where the patient is missing quite a few teeth, or healthy abutment teeth can’t be found.
- Implant supported Dentures (All On Four) – Dental implants can be used to support permanent dentures, replacing either the upper arch, lower arch, or both arches of teeth. This has a number of advantages compared to traditional dentures. Implant supported dentures don’t need to be removed, they don’t slip, and they look and feel more natural.
