Dental implants is the most modern and biologic way we have available today in order to replace missing teeth.
Implant dentistry is a specialty that has developed rapidly over recent years and their prosthetic restoration couldn’t be an exception. We are now able to build a prosthetic restoration using dental implants in a perfectly natural and aesthetic way.
In addition to modern metal alloys and ceramic bio-materials, an important role play modern computers and digital CAD / CAM technology.
What does an implant restoration consist of?
There are many ways to fabricate a fixed restoration over dental implants. An implant borne rehabilitation usually consists of the following parts:
- The Implant –the part which is placed inside the jaw bone. It is the solid foundation that provides stable anchorage for the prosthetic restoration.
- The Abutment – the prosthetic part that connects the implant with prosthetic restoration and emerges through the gums.
- The prosthetic restoration (a crown or bridge), which is the visible part of the reconstruction and restores the harmonic function and aesthetics of the mouth
Dental Implants and Prosthodontics
Today we have many of different prosthetic abutments in different shapes and sizes resembling the anatomy of a natural tooth, which are connected to the dental implant and form the basis for new, fixed restoration.
Modern implant dentistry makes it possible to replace one lost toot, by using a single implant…
… or several teeth in such an aesthetic way, that they look just like the adjacent natural teeth.
Dental Implants & Aesthetic Restorations
The new, specially designed, ceramic abutments are the latest development in implant prosthodontics. The strength of the new ceramic materials is equal to metal! They have the advantage of having the texture and color of the natural tooth, giving a particular luminosity both in prosthetic restoration and the tissues surrounding the gums.
They may not yet be indicated for extended restorations in the posterior areas of the mouth, however they are of valuable help in the front area and in regions with high aesthetic demands!
Dental prosthodontics has had a huge evolution thanks to the impressive advancement in the field of biomaterials and dental technology, which gives us viable solutions for every case. This is why every day thousands of people trust dental implants for a better and more carefree life!
The confidence of a natural smile!
