Are Dental Implants The Solution I Need?

For many years, the only treatment when loosing teeth  were dentures or bridges. Today, however, dental implants are a great alternative. Dental implants replace tooth roots. They are set into your jaw, and over time, the jawbone actually grows into the implant. Depending on whether you are missing one, several, or all of your teeth, you may have a single implant, or implant-supported bridges. The procedure typically involves local anesthesia, to make for a painless experience. Implants are made to match your natural teeth. They don’t require removal or adhesives like dentures. Because they fuse with the bone, they become permanent. In fact, with proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime.

The Dental Implant Process: What to Expect

“How long does a dental implant surgery take?” and “What are the stages of a dental implant treatment?” are two common dental implant inquiries. 

The timeline for completing a dental implant operation may differ from patient to patient. This will need extraction and bone transplantation in order to ensure your jaw is healthy enough before you undergo the surgical process. 

However, once any decaying teeth have been removed, as well as the surrounding bone graft has healed, there's an three-step technique in place:

1. Placement of Implant Body (This is done using 3D computerized planning to precisely place the implant for predictability)
2. Follow-up appointment & Assessment
3. Implant Crown/Custom Abutment

You may feel pressure at times, but it should not cause you discomfort. Post-operative discomfort is normal due to the procedure involving pushing back your gums and placing the screw into your jawbone however this can be managed with our pain-protocol given after the procedure.
