A dental implant is comprised of three pieces - post, abutment, restoration - that work together to provide a full tooth replacement from root to crown. The implant replaces the lost root, and the restoration attaches to the abutment and replaces lost function and forms the visible part of the implant.
First, you and Dr. Mojahed will talk about the type of restoration that best fits your needs. He would recommend a crown to replace a single tooth, a bridge to replace several teeth, or a full or partial denture if you are missing several teeth.
Next, you will work together to design your restoration so that the color, shade, and shape will look natural once we place it in your mouth. This step is especially critical with dentures, and we will take the time to make sure that the result meets your expectations.
After it is fabricated at a custom dental lab, you will return to our office where Dr. Mojahed will make final adjustments as necessary and then place your restoration in your mouth.
