What Happens During Dental Implant Treatment?

Step 1

Your dental implant is surgically placed into your jawbone. The implant looks like a small screw and is crafted from titanium.

Step 2

Your implant site must heal before beginning the next treatment phase. The abutment (post) is secured within your implant after the tissue has healed.

Step 3

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.

The Results of Your Dental Implant Procedure

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.

Your Dental Implant Treatment Overview

Initial oral examination

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.

Placement of your dental implant

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.

Healing and recover period

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.

Placement of your new, permanent tooth

After adequate healing, your new, permanent dental crown is placed. Your tooth structure, tooth function, and appearance will be restored.

So why not see if you’re a candidate?

Schedule your initial oral examination to discuss missing tooth replacement with dental implants or full mouth implants for total tooth replacement.
