Implant Restoration

Implant

A dental implant is a titanium “screw” resembling a tooth root and placed within the jawbone to support restorations replacing missing teeth. The implant fuses with the surrounding bone, but it lacks the periodontal ligament. For this reason, missing teeth restored with dental implants might feel slightly different from natural teeth during chewing

Dental implants are used to support a number of dental prostheses, including crowns, implant-supported bridges or dentures. They can also be used as anchorage to allow tooth movement during orthodontic treatment.

Dental implant restoration

Dental implant restorations refer to crowns, bridges and dentures which are either cemented, screwed or snapped onto dental implants. An impression of the implant is taken, allowing the dental laboratory to fabricate the implant restoration.
