Restorative stages of dental implants
Dental implants provide patients with tooth loss with a solution that will last a lifetime, making these restorations a popular choice for many patients who visit our practice. Dr. Sima F. Chegini of Arsmiles Family & Cosmetic Dentistry in Fairlawn, Ohio, is here to provide both the placement and restoration of dental implants for new and returning patients who are missing teeth. The implant restorative stage is the last in the placement of implants and completes the process.
The dental implant restoration process
The restorative stage of dental implants is the final stage needed to complete the journey to smile restoration. The dental implant is placed previously during the surgical stage, and time is required to allow the natural process of osseointegration or bone growth. Once this happens, the implant is fused to the bone for the proper foundation. Implant restoration is the placement of a crown, bridge, or denture over the abutment of a dental implant to finish the entire process. Dental bridges may require an implant on one or both sides to support the restoration. Additionally, patients may have several implants placed along the dental arch to support a complete denture with excellent retention, ensuring optimal esthetics, fit, and function without messy denture adhesives.
AMAZING!!!!! Every staff member I spoke with today was so kind and welcoming. The facility is SO CLEAN and comfortable! Mindy took her time cleaning my teeth and getting to know me. Dr. Chegini was so kind, knowable and I could tell she truly cares about her patients! It was a great experience and I’m glad I found them for both myself and my family.
How long is the restorative stage of implant dentistry?
Once the implant is osseointegrated and becomes one with the jawbone, placement of the custom restoration is done quickly in just one appointment utilizing our state-of-the-art CEREC same-day crown technology. The abutment will be placed over the healed implant and scanned with the Omnicam scanner. The scan will then be exported to the milling unit to fabricate the permanent crown. In less than an hour, the crown is ready to be cemented, and the patient will leave with the most cosmetic restoration that blends in seamlessly replacing the missing tooth.
