Dental Implants

Dental implants are surgical-grade replacement tooth roots. Once the implant has fused to the jaw, a crown is mounted on the implant. Unlike bridges or dentures, can be permanently fixed to the jaw bone, giving the appearance and feel of a natural tooth. Dental implants are a good choice for someone who lost one or more teeth due to injury, periodontal disease, or some other cause.

The Process of Getting a Dental Implant

First visit: Evaluation

The first visit takes about one hour

  • Have 2D and 3D x-rays taken
  • Get a digital scan of your mouth

 

If surgery can be performed, there will be two days between the first and second visit

 

Second visit: Surgical placement

This visit will take about one hour

  • Receive local anesthetic to ensure comfort
  • Implant is placed
  • Temporary acrylic crown is placed

 

After surgery, there is a two to three-month period for healing.

 

Third visit: Permanent crown placement

Depending on the material required, the permanent crown can be made the same day or will require an additional visit.

If the crown can be made the same day, the visit will take about four hours: Less than one hour for the scan, a two to three-hour waiting period, then less than one hour for cementing the crown.

  • Get a digital scan for the crown
  • Permanent crown is cemented in place

 

Fourth visit: Permanent crown placement

If the crown could not be made the same day due to the material required, this fourth and final visit would be necessary.

This visit will take less than one hour

  • Permanent crown cemented in place.
