Many patients today opt for implant restoration in Durham because they have seen how permanent the solution is and how natural the replacement teeth look. With dental implant restoration, a dentist fits artificial teeth to replace the missing ones. Talk to us if you have lost teeth and need implant restoration near you.
Various types of implant restoration in Durham, NC, are available, including:
Our dentist first does a consultation about implants. The dentist generally checks the space and the mouth, including the jawbone, to ensure you can receive implants. If you have insufficient bone capable of holding onto an implant, a bone graft may be done first to add more bone to support the implants.
The actual implant process begins with the implant placement surgery. Our dentist utilizes titanium or zirconia screws fitted into the jaw before they can osseointegrate with the bone.
Once the gums and bone heal, which takes roughly 4 to 6 months, an abutment, also known as a connector piece, is placed. The abutment goes over the implant screw or post. This will need some time to heal before completing the process.
The last step entails fitting the crown over the connector piece. Our dentist fabricates a custom-fitting crown that fits perfectly and looks like natural teeth.
