Dental Implant Restoration
Happy Valley, OR
Dental implants are a versatile and safe way to restore lost teeth. This dental procedure can be used for an individual who is missing one or more of their natural teeth due to decay, gum disease, fracture, trauma, and even genetic defects. Many people opt for this type of restorative treatment because it offers multiple benefits over traditional dentures, both in aesthetics and structural integrity.
What Is Dental Implant Restoration?
Dental implant restoration is the process of replacing missing teeth in the mouth. It involves placing an artificial tooth root into your jawbone and attaching a dental prosthesis, such as a crown, bridge, or denture, to complete the restoration. These restorations aim to replace missing or broken portions of teeth while also blending them in with an existing smile.

Ultimately, dental restoration creates a confident, healthy smile for each patient.
The Process of Dental Implant Restoration
Dental implant restoration is a comprehensive process that involves extensive planning before anything is put into your mouth. At Fusion Dental Specialists, the process begins with an examination of the oral health history and condition, as well as imaging such as x-rays to determine the best placement of the dental implants. Afterward, surgery is performed by our doctors to install the implants and wait for them to fuse completely with the jawbone. Lastly, restoration takes place where a post abutment (for one tooth) or a bridge (several teeth) is mounted on top of the implants for stability.
At Fusion Dental Specialists, the success rate for dental implants is extremely high and provides our patients with a permanent solution to replace damaged or missing teeth.
Who is Eligible for Dental Implant Restoration?
According to our doctors at Fusion Dental Specialists, any adult who is in good oral health and has lost one or more teeth - due to accident, disease, or decay, may be a candidate for this type of restoration.
Implant restoration is commonly recommended for those whose surrounding teeth are healthy enough to provide adequate support for porcelain crowns. Additionally, patients must have proper bone density and adequate gum tissue to withstand the rigorous process. Although it’s a preferred choice as it offers great longevity and results, our dentist will evaluate every case before recommending this procedure as part of the treatment plan.
