SURGICAL IMPLANT PLACEMENT
Surgical Implant Placement
Our dentist will thoroughly examine your mouth before starting the implant treatment. You will probably be a suitable candidate for implants if you have good oral health. However, if your jaw bone density in the intended treatment location is insufficient, we can advise that you get a bone graft before having your implant procedure. A bone transplant will fortify the bone in the implant treatment location, increasing the likelihood that your implant will be successfully inserted.
Our dentist will first expose the gum tissue over the space where your natural tooth once resided in order to install your dental implant. The bone where your implant will be positioned can be seen by opening the gum tissue. The implant post will then be carefully inserted into the jaw bone after our dentist carefully drills a hole the size of the post. You will need to wait a few months for it to heal once it has been placed so that the jaw bone can fuse with the implant post. Your final restoration will be attached to your implant following your healing time, bringing your treatment to an end.
