What is Dental Implants Restoration?
A natural tooth has two main components: the crown, which is the portion you see above the gumline, and the root, which is what anchors your tooth firmly in place in your jawbone. A dental implant is a small screw that is surgically placed in your jaw, where it replaces the root of your missing tooth so that your new tooth has nearly the same functionality and stability as your natural tooth would. This happens because the zirconium implant and your jawbone undergo a transformative process called osseointegration where they fuse together to form an incredibly sturdy, durable foundation for your replacement tooth.
Dental Implants Restoration have many benefits:
- Unparalleled functionality – after it heals, you can eat whatever you want without restrictions and do not need to worry about your restoration slipping or falling out of your mouth
- Longevity – with good oral hygiene, Dental Implants Restoration can last a lifetime
- Better oral health – Dental Implants Restoration stimulate your jawbone to keep it healthy, rather than deteriorating over time as it can with other types of dental restorations; in addition, they are easy to care for and no healthy tooth structure in your surrounding teeth needs to be altered to support the implant
Two types of implants are generally available: titanium or zirconium. Both function similarly, but as a holistic dental practice, our dentists recommend zirconium implants because zirconium is a non-metal, tooth-colored, biocompatible material.

Placing Dental Implants Restoration
First, a local periodontist will surgically place the dental implant in a strategic location in your jaw. After that has healed, an abutment is placed on the implant, which is a small connecting piece that is used to connect your new tooth to the implant. Then, our team at Natural and Cosmetic Dentistry restores the tooth with a beautiful, natural-looking crown made of biocompatible zirconium.
