What to Expect From the Dental Implant Procedure
Any treatments that must be performed to prepare the oral environment for successful implantation will be performed prior to your dental implant procedure. When you first arrive for your appointment, we will administer an anesthetic to make certain that you do not feel any discomfort during the procedure. A titanium post is inserted into the jaw bone at the site of your missing tooth. Titanium is used in implants throughout the body due to its ability to integrate successfully with human bone. Over the span of three to six months, your dental implant will fuse with the bone, yielding a strong foundation for your dental crown.
Once the healing process is complete, the post is fitted with an abutment. The abutment serves as a connector between the post of your implant and your dental crown. The abutment allows the dental crown to appear as if it rises up from the gum line. The dental crown is the only part of your dental implant that is visible and it is matched in both shape and color to your surrounding natural teeth.
Dental implants can be used in this manner to replace a single tooth or a full arch. Implants can also be used to permanently secure dentures.
