If you have a missing tooth, a dental implant made of a small titanium screw is surgically placed into your jawbone by your oral surgeon. Once the implant fuses in place, you have an artificial root system that provides a strong foundation for a restoration that attaches to it.
Dental implant restorations are prosthetic teeth, such as crowns, bridges, or dentures. Your restoration restores your oral function and improves the appearance of your smile.
A dental implant restoration is for anyone who is a candidate for a dental implant. You may need an implant and restoration if you:
Dr. Trogan first determines if you have healthy tissues and a strong jaw bone. If not, you may need a bone grafting procedure before moving forward with dental implants.
Your implant healing process from beginning to end can take up to six months or longer. When fully healed, Dr. Trogan takes images or impressions of your mouth and sends them to a dental lab for the manufacturing of your tooth replacement. She also places an abutment over your implant, to which your restoration is attached.
Once your new prosthetic is ready, Dr. Trogan places it over your abutment and ensures a comfortable fit. She then bonds them together with a permanent dental glue.
You now have a healthy, beautiful smile that will last for many years.
