Dental Implant Restorations
There is a certain amount of artistry in restorative dentistry and a lot of advanced technology involved in the creation of your implant restoration. The objective is to craft a replacement that closely matches the shape and color of your natural tooth. Your implant restoration, or the crown portion of your implant, will be mounted on a titanium implant that is fused into the bone.
Prior to placing the crown, the implant will be given time to fuse, when it becomes a part of the bone itself. Our dentist will insert a temporary crown to protect the implant and fill in your smile while the implant fuses to the bone. This will ensure that your implant is extremely secure and will prevent the bone from shrinking.
When your implant is ready to be applied, we will create an abutment on which the implant can be installed. All the work from beginning to end will be done in-house by your Lakewood dental team.
Occasionally, a dental implant can be damaged or broken from excessive stress. When this happens, it is usually due to biting down on a very hard object. If this happens to you, don’t panic. Try to collect all the parts of the implant that you can. If any part is swallowed, it will pass through your digestive system safely.
Call to schedule an appointment, so we can create a new implant crown for you and provide you with a temporary one while it is being made. Rarely, a failure of the implant itself can occur. This may be due to insufficient bone or poor bone quality.
Your Lakewood Dental Trails team takes careful measures every step of the way to ensure that your dental implant is successful. We will assess the bone quality and density of the implant area prior to insertion of the implant. Fusing the implant is a critical part of the implant procedure. The implant must have adequate time for full osseointegration to occur.
