Options for Dental Implant Restoration

Dental Implant Restoration Saratoga Springs, NY

A dental implant restoration is a great way to replace missing teeth. It involves inserting an artificial tooth root into your jaw and giving it time to fuse with bone tissues around it in a process called osseointegration.

It can take up to six months for a dental implant restoration to fuse with bone tissues around it. It turns the implant into part of the jawbone, providing excellent stability. An abutment and a crown are attached to the implant to replace the lost tooth.

The process of replacing teeth with implants requires minor oral surgery. Patients should be healthy enough to heal from the process, and their jaw should have enough depth to hold implants in place. Some patients might need to get bone grafts to be eligible for implants. They will need to heal from the procedure before proceeding with implants. That takes about three months.

Dental implant restoration options

Most dentists agree implants are the next best thing to real teeth, but they also happen to be one of the more expensive teeth replacement options. A single implant can cost more than the price of replacing all of a patient’s teeth with dentures.

Implants are the only teeth replacement option that prevents bone tissues from deteriorating after teeth fall out. Many patients want to enjoy such benefits, but it might be out of reach of their budget. The creative way dentists try to solve this problem is by combining implants with other restorations for a more affordable solution that still keeps the patient’s jaw healthy.

Popular implant hybrids include:

Implant-supported dentures

Dentures are the most affordable teeth replacement option, but they come with poor stability that makes it difficult to talk and eat with them. They are held in place by suction forces which leads to poor stability and constant shifting. This can lead to sores forming on soft tissues in the mouth due to constantly being irritated.

Implants can be used to anchor down dentures and eliminate these issues. As a result, the patient’s jawbone tissues are preserved as the implants give their jaw the stimulation it needs to remain healthy.

The process involves putting four to six implants into each half of the patient’s jaw. The implants are given up to six months for osseointegration before being fitted with attachments that are used to secure dentures in place. Implant-supported dentures can be fixed in place or removable.


The installation of dental bridges typically requires fitting the two teeth closest to the gap in the patient’s smile with crowns. This involves removing enamel from all their sides.

All that can be avoided with implant-supported bridges. Implants are installed at each end of the space and crowns are placed on the implant. The implants then serve as anchors for artificial teeth that close up the gap in the patient’s smile.
