Dental Health And Care Concept.Tooth loss is best managed with dental implants. Dental implants are high-quality, titanium metal posts that are incredibly small. They look like small hardware screws that are placed into the bone of the jaw during oral surgery. The post is then restored with a dental restoration based on the needs of the patient. Dental implants are incredibly popular because of their longevity, strength, and ability to maintain the natural bone structure. Drs. Gill, Kenson, and Qi of Golden Dental Solutions in Golden, CO are excited to offer dental implants and the many ways in which they can be restored. 

How are dental implants restored? 

The type of restoration over a dental implant is decided based on a patient’s unique needs. The number of teeth that the patient needs restored as well as the presence of surrounding teeth are often taken into consideration. Below are the more common ways in which dental implants are restored: 

  • Dental crowns – a single tooth being replaced by a dental implant is achieved with the use of a dental crown over the abutment of the implant. A dental crown is a ceramic restoration made to place over the implant and function as a false tooth. It restores beauty and function when patients have a gap left behind from tooth loss.
  • Dental bridge – a bridge is often supported by a dental implant on one or both sides to replace one or several teeth in a row. The bridge is made of porcelain and is attached to the abutment of the implant.
  • Dentures – full dentures can be made in such a way to snap into place with four dental implants along the dental arch. This provides better stability and function than is commonly experienced with traditional full dentures held in place with natural suction or denture adhesives.

Which restoration is the best choice for my needs? 

Drs. Gill, Kenson, and Qi understand that tooth restoration options are not all the same. What works for one patient might not be the best solution for another. With the help of the team at Golden Dental Solutions of Golden, CO, patients can make the right choice for their needs.
