Creating Your Implant Restorations

astoria implant restorationsTo ensure that each and every dental implant you receive looks natural, our team will create a custom-made restoration for them. In today’s blog, your Astoria, NY, dentist talks about the process of designing and crafting these restorations, and how we ensure your new teeth look great and last for years to come!

The Causes of Your Tooth Loss

We could lose our natural teeth for several reasons. Some may suffer tooth loss due to an untreated cavity or infection, or as a result of an injury. The most common cause is related to gum disease. The advanced stage of the disease, known as periodontitis, actually severs the tissues that connect the teeth and gums. The teeth become loose and fall out. Since the body no longer sends doses of calcium and phosphorus to the jawbone around a missing root, this means the bone tissue loses mass and density, a recipe for further tooth loss.

The Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implant posts are made from titanium, which is biocompatible. The body accepts them as natural roots once we surgically insert them into the jawbone. This means the bone tissue doesn’t lose mass and density, preserving your smile and also ensuring your new root can last for decades to come, or a lifetime in some cases. We could use them to address a single missing tooth, or to support a prosthetic. Unlike traditional bridges or removable dentures, these never slip and will last far longer than ten years. But what about the part people see when you smile?

Crafting Custom Restorations

Our team knows how to create dental implant restorations that look natural and also absorb the daily bite forces and pressures that your teeth must endure. We begin by taking detailed impressions and images of your smile with digital technology, which allows us to design the restoration. We then craft them in a lab setting from materials like porcelain, which are durable and can be color-matched to blend with your smile. We want you to be able to eat your favorite foods again, smile with confidence, and speak without difficulty. Don’t let your tooth loss cause problems for your smile, talk to our team today. We will perform an examination to find the best option for treating your missing teeth.
