Dental implant restoration is a procedure for replacing one or multiple missing teeth. Individuals with missing teeth can suffer from a lack of self-confidence, which can be a significant deterrent to social interaction. For example, embarrassment about missing teeth may prevent a person from confidently smiling or participating in everyday social activities.
The missing tooth or teeth may even affect the way a person speaks. In addition, general health may suffer as eating may be difficult. On the other hand, restoring missing teeth can improve a person’s appearance, self-confidence, and health. Fortunately, there is a perfect solution for replacing missing teeth. Many patients are deciding to fix the problem by choosing from various available dental implant restoration procedures.
What is Dental Implant Treatment?
Dental implant restorative treatment is a procedure that creates an artificial tooth to replace one or multiple missing teeth. The process involves attaching a crown to an implanted root that fuses with the natural bone over time. Then, the implant specialist will place the dental crown or artificial tooth over the implant, a titanium post that functions as the permanent root for the new tooth.
Types of Crowns Used in Implant Restoration Treatment
With dental implants used as a foundation for the new tooth, there are two options for restoration. These two methods for dental implant restoration are screw-retained or cemented. A screw-retained implant restoration has apparent advantages over the cemented dental implant method because it is more easily repaired when a crown is fractured.

Likewise, some patients require a single-tooth dental implant, while others require multiple-tooth dental implants.
