The abutment and restoration placement phases for dental implants represent the culmination of a comprehensive journey towards a rejuvenated smile. This process encapsulates the harmony between artistry, science, and personalisation, resulting in a smile that not only exudes confidence but also enriches your oral health and quality of life. With the abutment and restoration in place, you’re ready to confidently embrace a new chapter with the radiant smile you deserve.

Understanding abutment and restoration placement for dental implants - Excellence In DentistryThe Abutment Connection

After the osseointegration phase, where the dental implant fuses with the jawbone, it’s time to introduce the abutment. This intermediary component acts as a bridge between the implant and the visible tooth-like restoration. The abutment placement entails:

  1. Gentle Unveiling: In a minimally invasive procedure, your dentist uncovers the implant, exposing it for the upcoming steps.
  2. Abutment Attachment: The abutment, customised to fit your unique dental anatomy, is securely attached to the implant. Its design ensures a snug fit and serves as the support structure for the final restoration.
  3. Healing Period: While the soft tissues heal around the abutment, a process that generally takes a few weeks, the foundation for the restoration’s lifelike appearance and optimal function is established.

The Restoration Revelation

The restoration, often a crown, bridge, or denture, is the element that closely resembles your natural teeth. The restoration placement involves:

  1. Impression and Customisation: Precise impressions are taken of your abutment and surrounding teeth. This mould guides the creation of a restoration that harmoniously fits within your oral landscape, ensuring a natural appearance and proper bite alignment.
  2. Artistry in the Lab: Skilled dental technicians craft your restoration using high-quality materials, paying meticulous attention to colour, shape, and texture to achieve a personalised and indistinguishable match with your existing teeth.
  3. Fitting and Bonding: Once ready, your dentist meticulously assesses the restoration’s fit, making any necessary adjustments. Once the perfect fit is achieved, the restoration is securely bonded to the abutment.
  4. Functional and Aesthetic Harmony: The restoration’s positioning and bite alignment are fine-tuned, ensuring both optimal function and a seamless integration with your smile.

The Personalised Touch

Throughout these phases, personalisation reigns supreme. The abutment and restoration are tailored to your unique oral characteristics by our implantologist, ensuring a customised fit, comfortable feel, and natural appearance. This bespoke approach is the cornerstone of a smile that not only looks but also functions just like your natural teeth.

Have been coming to this practice for years, despite it being a good long drive. Initially I had concerns when Andre handed the reigns over, but these concerns proved unfounded as the team continued to be just as kind, caring and attentive as always. Any dental work is always carried out thoroughly and diligently and I always leave feeling like nothing has been missed or rushed. In addition, the practice uses ‘the wand’ for anaesthesia, a barely noticeable and ultra fine needle that administers slowly and without much discomfort. As someone who has a fear of needles this has helped hugely. I often struggle with tooth sensitivity so the hygienist visit is always something I dread, but Agota’s reassuring and patient attitude makes things go much more smoothly. Honestly can’t recommend them highly enough.

Priya is so warm and welcoming I will definitely be going back to her and I am so pleased I have found someone I trust to treat my face. I cannot recommend her enough, I have been absolutely blown away with the results. Thank you Priya for all your advice and care.

Highly recommend. I’ve been coming here for over 20 years. It’s not local to me but I travel here because it’s worth it. The care here is truly excellent. I was worried when Andre retired but Keelin is every bit as good and so I will continue to come here.

Great dental practice. Brilliant with all the family and expert advice. They are really good at making anxious patients feel calm and explain any treatments fully with you. State of the art equipment, TV screens and music to make you feel relaxed. Both my kids also having orthodontic treatment here. Highly recommend....
