Learn more about dental implant restoration

Dental implants are a popular choice for Charlotte, North Carolina patients who are missing one or more teeth. While the placement of these restorations is performed with an oral surgeon, Dr. Philip Hahn and his team can provide the final repair to restore dental implants after placement. There are several different ways in which implants can be restored.

Implant Restorations
Dental implants are titanium roots, that are replaced with in the jawbone to resemble a tooth or group of teeth. A screw is inserted through the gums and into the jawbone. A porcelain crown is then attached to the screw to become the new tooth or teeth. They can be used to support dental prosthesis including crowns, dentures, and bridges. Today’s treatments are so natural looking, no one will know you had surgery. There’s approximately a 95% success rate for all implants. With modern advances in dentistry, some implants can be restored immediately with life like all porcelain crowns. For more details ask your dentist.

How can a dentist restore dental implants?

Dr. Hahn and his team at Family Dental Choice are pleased to provide several types of restorations to fit over prepositioned dental implants. This includes:

  • Dental crown. A dental crown is used over the dental implant to replace a single tooth within the smile. The crown is a cap covering the abutment above the gum line and looks just like the other teeth in size, shape, and color. Dental crowns are customized for the patient to ensure seamless integration.
  • Dental bridge. When patients are replacing one or several teeth in a row, they may be told they can benefit from a dental bridge. A dental bridge is a restoration that includes false teeth fused to dental crowns on each side. They require teeth on opposite sides for support, but if this is not available, dental implants may be used instead.
  • Dentures. Patients who need to replace all the teeth in the smile may find that dentures, made to snap into several dental implants along the dental arch, are the most effective way of restoring the smile. Dentures made for implants are much more conservative than more traditional full dentures, which may include acrylic teeth and gums.
