Creating Custom Dental Implant Restorations

When you have missing teeth, we can provide dental implants to address tooth loss and rebuild your smile, so you avoid the complications of missing teeth. To ensure they look natural and can provide a durable chewing surface, we can create a custom restoration. In today’s blog, your West Allis, WI, dentist talks about our custom implant restorations.

When You Need a Dental Implant

A dental implant is unlike traditional bridges or dentures. Instead of relying on crowns or suction/adhesives to stay in place, we can insert them directly into the jawbone. These implants are a screw-like post made from titanium, a biocompatible material that the body accepts as natural root structure. The posts bond with the jaw and can stay in place for decades to come, possibly a lifetime, acting as a natural tooth root. Our team can use one to support an individual replacement tooth, or several to aid in securing bridges or fixed dentures.

Placing the New Roots

The first step is to carefully examine the smile, so we can identify the factors behind your tooth loss, so we can provide treatment to correct these underlying issues and safeguard your new teeth and remaining natural ones too. Next, we use advanced imaging to assess the strength of the jaw, making sure you won’t first need grafting or a sinus lift to support your new roots. We use technology to guide the posts into the right position, angle, and depth to support a new tooth. When the new post is in place, we will wait for the area to heal before we attach the implant restoration.

Custom Restorations

For an individual dental implant, our team will create a dental crown that is attached to the implant post via an abutment. The crown is custom-made to ensure not only a balanced bite, but an attractive and lifelike appearance too. Being made from materials like ceramic ensures it can support daily bite forces too. The customized potential ensures your new tooth looks great and blends with the rest of your smile. As we touched on above, we can also create lifelike bridges and dentures as needed, so regardless of the severity of your tooth loss, we can help with implant dentistry.
