Implant-Supported Restorations

Smiles Renewed with Implant-Supported Restorations

At the restorative dentistry practice of Dr. Gary Horblitt patients can renew their smiles with implant supported restorations. What is an implant supported restoration? It’s when Dr. Horblitt replaces missing teeth with dental prosthetics that are anchored by dental implants. The implant supported restorations are hand-crafted by Dr. Horblitt in our on-site dental lab.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are the keystone of all implant supported restorations. A dental implant begins with a titanium post that’s embedded into the jaw. Titanium is a biocompatible material that the jawbone will fuse around. Why is that a good thing? The jaw’s only purpose is to nourish the tooth roots, and when there aren’t any, the jaw begins to disintegrate. The closest dental appliances to natural tooth roots are titanium posts.

Implant-Supported Restorations

Dental implants can be used as single restorations. In some cases it is used to replace many teeth. A composite resin or custom-made porcelain crown colored to match your natural teeth is added to the titanium post. For an implant-supported restoration, the dental implant serves as an anchor point for dental prostheses, such as a crown, bridge, denture or partials.
