If you are crestfallen with your smile, you should consider dental implant restoration with Brady Dental Group.  Dental implant restoration is a procedure of replacing missing teeth. Implant restoration is changing the opinions of tooth replacement.  And, dental implant restoration is replacing traditional dentures as a solution for missing teeth. Many people are choosing this new dental alternative for a variety of reasons. If you are missing teeth and suffer from a lack of self-confidence in social situations, dental implant restoration with Brady Dental Group might be for you.

Missing teeth may even affect the way a person speaks. General health may suffer as eating may be difficult.  Restoring missing teeth can improve a person’s appearance, health, and self-confidence. Luckily, there is a solution for replacing missing teeth. Many people are deciding to fix the problem by choosing from a variety of available dental implant restoration procedures. Brady Dental Group offers several procedures for dental implant restoration. 

A dental implant restoration is a procedure that creates an artificial tooth to replace a missing one. The process involves attaching the artificial tooth to an implanted root with a titanium screw that fuses with the bone over a period of time.  The implant will be restored with a crown and then becomes an individually fully functional tooth. Dental implant restoration happens in multiple stages and can take several months to heal.  The first step in dental implant restoration is to allow the oral surgeon at Brady Dental Group to carefully assess and then develop a treatment plan. Then the process of preparing the bone to receive the implant begins.  The extent of this preparation depends on the number of implants that will be required. The initial step is the actual placing of the implant. The most critical aspect of placing the implant in the bone is assuring that there is enough bone available to hold the implant.   

The surgeon at Brady Dental Group will then place the implant in the space that accommodated the missing tooth. The dental implants can be made of titanium and can be placed in either the upper or the lower jawbone. A period of three to six months is required for the implant to fuse itself into the bone.   

An x-ray will determine when the dental implant has adhered itself to the bone and then it will be time for the second step of your dental implant restoration.  Once it is determined by the oral surgeon that the implant has adhered itself to the jawbone, it is time for the abutment and crown.   

The purpose of placing an abutment on the implant is to aid in holding the new crown in place. This step in the dental implant restoration may require more minor surgery to complete. It is necessary for the gums to be opened in order for the abutment to be attached to the implant. A single implant crown is designed to look like a natural tooth, but will require expertise by the oral surgeon at Brady Dental Group for proper alignment and placement.   An implant abutment and crown are placed on the implant with special tools that screw it in and tighten it or can be connected to implants by being cemented in place.  Cemented crowns often look far better and are more natural.  

The recovery period for a dental implant restoration will rarely be less than four months and can also be extended to the last six months. In cases where tooth decay has spread to the jaw, the last six months will be extended.  There are several tips to make your dental implant heal faster and make the process easier.  Rest, eat soft, nutritious foods, stay hydrated, use ice packs, rinse with salt water, do not smoke and practice good oral hygiene.
