Your dental implant is surgically placed into your jawbone. The implant looks like a small screw and is crafted from titanium.
Your implant site must heal before beginning the next treatment phase. The abutment (post) is secured within your implant after the tissue has healed.
Your new tooth (a dental crown) is secured to the surface of the implant post (abutment). This final step restores your tooth function and overall appearance.
Your implant provides you a secure and long-lasting tooth replacement. Dental implant treatment strengthens your bone and gum tissue as the implant adapts to the tissue.
The health of your bone and gum tissue will be observed. Your implant relies on the strength and overall health of your jawbone and surrounding tissue.
Your comfort during the procedure is assisted by the use of anesthesia and sedation. The implant is placed within your jawbone, a temporary tooth is placed on the surface, and you will be provided post-surgical instructions to promote healing of your implant site.
It will require three to six months for your implant site to heal effectively. Your dental implant will adapt to your bone and gum tissue during this period.
After adequate healing, your new, permanent dental crown is placed. Your tooth structure, tooth function, and appearance will be restored.
Schedule your initial oral examination to discuss missing tooth replacement with dental implants or full mouth implants for total tooth replacement.Request an Appointment
