Restoration is the process of creating an artificial tooth and connecting it to the dental implant.The process of restoring a single implant, or multiple implants, starts after the implant is placed as described in ‘dental implant surgery’. After the surgery a period of at least 3 months is required to let the tissue recover and prevent further trauma.
When the area for treatment is ready the dentist will puncture a hole in the gum tissue right above the dental implants. An abutment will be screwed on top of the implants. The abutment is a metal cylinder that the artificial tooth is built onto.
