Treatment for Dental Implants
Immediate teeth replacement options are available so you're never without teeth.
The process of getting dental implants typically requires a number of visits over several months. In order to properly place an implant for its long-term success, a certain height and width of bone is needed to support it. Radiographs/Dental CT-Scan (X-rays) and impressions (models) are taken of the jaws and teeth to determine bone, gum tissue, and spacing available for an implant.
Once it is determined that you are a candidate for dental implants, the treatment plan is coordinated with your dentist. There are cases when dental implants can be placed the same day teeth are extracted. At our office, the implant(s) will be surgically placed into the bone and allowed to heal and integrate with the bone (bone bonds to the implant) for up to four to six months. Oral sedation is an option for most patients.
When the implant is determined to be stable, you are referred to your dentist for final crown/restoration placement.
You will receive care instructions when your treatment is completed. Good oral hygiene and regular dental visits will aid in the longevity of your new implant.
