The Dental Implant Procedure
You’ll receive your dental implants in several stages to ensure your new tooth is as secure as possible. Though the process may seem like it takes a while, there’s no other tooth replacement option like a dental implant.
Your Free Consultation
At your consultation, our team will go over your dental health with you and perform an examination of your jaw. We can determine whether you need a supplemental procedure and make sure dental implants are right for you.
This is also a great time for you to ask any questions you have about your treatment and let our team know what your goals are. Once you’re both ready to move forward with the procedure, you’ll be able to begin your journey.
The fixture is the part of your implant that will function as its roots, holding your new tooth in place permanently. Because of this, it’s vital that the fixture is placed correctly and heals properly.
Made from biocompatible titanium, the fixture creates a strong bond with your bone during osseointegration. This process may take a couple of months to complete, so while waiting can be difficult, it’s one of the most important steps.
Our team will give you a temporary crown so you won’t have to be without a tooth while your surgical site is healing.
Your Finished Implant
When your fixture is fully healed and integrated, we’ll call you back to our office for the rest of your implant. our team will then place your abutment, which connects your porcelain crown to the fixture.
You’ll be able to leave our office and smile fearlessly — an implant blends seamlessly with the rest of your teeth, so nobody will be able to tell you lost a tooth.
