Dental Implant Restorations
At Avon Dental Care in Avon, Ohio, we’re eager to help you regain confidence in your smile. Many patients invest in dental implant treatments to help them restore their smiles and confidence.
The two phases of a dental implant treatment are 1) placement and 2) restoration.
During the placement phase, we embed a post into your jawbone. Following the procedure, we give you time to heal during osseointegration.
Once your dental implant site has healed, it will be time for your dental implant restoration. You’ll come to our office in Avon, Ohio, and Dr. Thomas R. Hughes or Dr. Troy Steinhilber will add the crown to your implant, completing your smile and restoring its appearance and function.
What You Need to Know About Dental Implant Restorations
The restoration replaces the crown of your tooth, which is the part you can see above the gums. Dental care advances allow these prosthetic crowns to match the appearance of natural teeth. We use a porcelain material that blends almost seamlessly, so no one will know you have an implant.
However, your restoration serves more than just an aesthetic function. The crown of your tooth helps you properly chew your food because it creates a strong bite when correctly matched to the adjacent teeth. Additionally, you can speak more clearly when all your teeth are present.
Depending on how many teeth you are missing, your restoration may require a single crown, a dental bridge, or a complete or partial denture. During your consultation, our dentists will determine which type of restoration will provide you with the best results for your oral health, function, and smile.
Your implant restoration is custom designed to give you a natural and long-lasting smile. We design each restoration to be aesthetically pleasing and durable so that you can enjoy the results of your treatment for years to come.
The Implant Restoration Procedure
The procedure for your implant restoration may start with a mold of your mouth after your placement has healed. The mold helps Dr. Hughes or Dr. Steinhilber make a restoration that is the correct shape and size. While waiting for the next phase of the procedure, your dentist may give you a temporary crown, bridge, or denture.
Once the crown is ready, we attach the permanent restoration to your implant.
Caring for your dental implant is similar to caring for your natural teeth. First, you need to brush and floss your teeth twice a day. It’s best to use a soft-bristle toothbrush, making sure you clean around the implant crown.
Next, you should also schedule and maintain regular dental checkups. Your dental team can clean your teeth and implant crown to ensure you experience no complications.
