Dental Implant Restorations

Dental implants are a highly effective and long-lasting solution for missing teeth. They are made of titanium posts, which are surgically implanted into the jawbone, and abutments and crowns that are attached to the posts. Dental implants offer superior aesthetics and functionality compared to other tooth replacement options like dentures and bridges. With proper care, dental implants can last for many years without any issues. However, like natural teeth, dental implants can develop problems that require restorative dental work. In this article, we will discuss dental implant restorations and how they can help you maintain a healthy and functional smile.

At Envision Dental, we offer comprehensive dental implant services, including dental implant restorations and repairs. Our team of dental professionals has extensive experience in implant dentistry and can provide you with the care you need to keep your dental implants in good condition.

Variety of Dental Implant Restorations

  • Implant Crown Restoration: If the crown on your dental implant is damaged or worn down, we can replace it with a new one. We use high-quality materials to create a new crown that matches the color and shape of your natural teeth.
  • Implant Bridge Restoration: If you have a dental implant-supported bridge, and one of the abutment teeth or pontics is damaged, we can replace it. We can customize a new bridge to match the size and shape of your original restoration, ensuring a comfortable and secure fit.
  • Implant Overdenture Restoration: If you have an implant-supported overdenture, and the denture has become damaged or worn down, we can replace it. We will work with you to customize a new denture that fits comfortably and securely over your dental implants.

What Are Dental Implant Restorations?

Dental implant restorations refer to any dental work that is performed on a dental implant to restore its function and aesthetics. Some common reasons for dental implant restorations include damage to the implant, gum disease, bone loss, and health problems. If the dental implant becomes loose or the abutment or crown is damaged, it may require restorative work to protect your smile and tooth function.

Our dental implant specialists use state-of-the-art technology and techniques to perform dental implant restorations. We strive to ensure that you receive the best care possible, and we will work with you to find the right restoration solution for your needs.

When Do You Need Dental Implant Restorations?

Dental implants are designed to last for many years without any issues. However, they are not immune to damage, wear and tear, or health issues. Some common reasons why you may need dental implant restorations include:

  1. Implant Damage: Dental implants can become damaged due to injury, trauma, or wear and tear over time. If the implant post becomes loose or the crown or abutment is damaged, you may need a restoration.
  2. Gum Disease: Gum disease is a common dental problem that can affect the health of your dental implants. If left untreated, gum disease can cause bone loss, which can compromise the stability of your dental implant.
  3. Bone Loss: Bone loss can occur due to aging, injury, or health problems. If you have significant bone loss around your dental implant, it may need a restoration to ensure its stability and longevity.
  4. Health Issues: Certain health problems, such as diabetes or autoimmune disorders, can affect the health of your dental implants. If you have a health condition that affects your oral health, you may need restorative work on your dental implants.

At Envision Dental, we recommend that our patients schedule routine checkups and cleanings to monitor the health of their dental implants.
