implant restoration

Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

A restoration placed on an implant designed to restore normal function, aesthetics, speech, and comfort. It may be secured on the underlying implant by screw or cement retention, or a combination of the two. This allows the restoration to be removed for repair in the event of porcelain fracture, abutment fracture, or if the prosthesis needs to be modified such as when an implant has failed. The restorative prosthesis may consist of several units secured to a number of implants.
