How Can Dental Implants Be Restored?
Implants are incredibly versatile and commonly replace one or more teeth. Below are the ways in which Anjum A. Ansari, D.M.D. and her team can restore implants:
- Dental crowns. The most common way of restoring dental implants is with dental crowns. Dental crowns are porcelain “caps” placed on the abutment of a dental implant to replace a single tooth. It is made to match the existing teeth, so it integrates well into the smile.
- Dental bridge. A dental bridge is often used over dental implants, specifically to hold one or both sides. Bridges are best for our patients missing one or more teeth in a row, as they “bridge” the gap left behind. These restorations are made of porcelain to look as natural as possible.
- Dentures. While full cosmetic dentures can replace the entire arch of teeth, they can be problematic. They might not stay in place, even with denture adhesives, or they may rub and irritate the gums. Placing several dental implants along the dental arch can provide a foundation for a denture. It keeps it firmly in place while also maintaining bone, avoiding the “sunken” appearance of the chin and jaw over time due to bone resorption.
