Dental Implant Procedure
For a long time, dentures were the sole remedy for missing teeth. Dental implants are an advancement in oral care that has changed the lives of many patients. With implants, eligible patients receive strong metal anchors to substitute for tooth roots. These are inserted directly into the jawbone via surgery and are then given time to heal. They will provide a base for posts that will hold replacement teeth. These posts behave as stable housings for your dental implants.
Dental implants typically require a two-stage procedure:
Initial visit: Metal implants are inserted directly into the jawbone. These metal anchors are allowed 3-6 months to heal and bond with the bone beneath your gums. You can typically wear temporary dentures and still enjoy a soft diet during this period.
Follow-up visit: We will be able to fabricate your brand new teeth. We will take an impression and produce prosthetic replacements for missing teeth to be positioned over the post attachments in your anchors.
Perfect Replacements are Worth the Wait
Dental implants can often take 6-8 months from start to finish. The majority of this time is occupied by allowing your metal anchors to sufficiently heal and form the strongest possible bond with the underlying bone. We work with all of our dental implant patients to help maximize comfort and reduce the impact to your quality of life during this time.
