Dental Implants - The Procedure
Initial Consultation: During your first visit, we’ll have an in-depth discussion about your dental history, aesthetic goals, and overall health to ensure dental implants are the right choice for you. We’ll use this time to answer all your questions and outline what you can expect regarding outcomes and the investment required for your new smile.
Pre-Procedural Assessment: We will conduct thorough oral examinations, including detailed measurements, and possibly use advanced imaging techniques such as digital X-rays or CBCT scans. This crucial step helps us to meticulously plan your implant placement, considering the anatomical structures and the best aesthetic outcome.
Implant Placement: The implant placement is a surgical procedure where a titanium post is inserted into the jawbone under local anesthesia. This post will act like the root of your new tooth. We prioritize your comfort and ensure this procedure is as pain-free as possible, with sedation options available.
Healing Process: After the implant is placed, the healing process, known as osseointegration, begins. This is when the bone fuses with the titanium post, creating a solid foundation for your new tooth. This period is critical and may last a few months, during which you’ll have temporary teeth, if necessary, and guidance on how to best support healing.
Abutment and Crown Fitting: Once your implant has integrated with the bone, we’ll attach an abutment, which serves as the base for your new tooth. After that, a custom-made crown designed to match your natural teeth in color, shape, and size will be securely attached to the abutment, completing the restoration.
Follow-Up Care: Regular follow-up visits are essential to monitor the implant and the health of surrounding tissues and to ensure that your bite remains comfortable and functional. We also offer advice on how to care for your implant and maintain optimal oral hygiene practices to ensure the longevity of your new smile.
Dental Implants - FAQs and Additional Information
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots, typically made of titanium, that are placed into your jawbone to support a replacement tooth or bridge. They integrate with your bone structure through a process called osseointegration, providing stable support for artificial teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth.
