Secure, Effective Restorations
Dental implants are made of three parts: the implant post, the connective abutment, and the implant restoration. Dental implant restorations are prosthetic teeth—crowns, bridges, and dentures—that have been customized to rest on top of the dental implant post. They are made out of porcelain, which is both sturdy enough for daily use and natural looking for your aesthetic benefit.
The restoration serves as the visible tooth, responsible for chewing, speaking, and appearing in the smile. Traditional prostheses are reliant to the smile, either wrapping around remaining teeth or being held by the suction of the dentition. This prosthetic is directly supported by the jaw through the implant post. Implant restorations are one of the most effective restorations in dentistry because dental implants replace teeth down to their roots.
The Dental Implant Process
Dental implants are added to the smile through several different steps. First, the entire procedure is planned out. Next, the implant posts have to be surgically placed into the jaw bone and a healing period commences. Lastly, after the healing process is complete and the posts have integrated into the jaw bone, the implant restoration and the connective abutment is added to the post. The end result of the entire process is a restored, beautiful smile.
Our Fredericksburg dental practice stands by you throughout each phase of treatment.
Drs. Duarte and Diaz examine your smile thoroughly, which includes gathering several images and x-rays of your dentition. These exams are sent to a trusted specialist, who we work with to develop your treatment plan and place the implant posts. Throughout your healing period, we help you by both conducting check-ups to monitor your recovery and having your crown, bridge, or denture fabricated. Once the fabrication and healing process are complete, our dentists add your restorations to the implant posts.
