Dental Implant Process
Dental implant placement occurs over a series of visits and the timeline varies for each patient. First, we’ll schedule an initial consultation to thoroughly discuss your smile goals, dental health, and create a personalized treatment plan for you. At your next visit, your implant will be surgically fused with your jawbone and given time to heal before we move forward. Once your implant has bonded to your jawbone, we’ll attach the connective structure (abutment) that holds your restoration in place. Once this is completed, your implant is ready for a dental crown, bridge, or denture to be attached.
When considering dental implants, your jawbone density, gum health, and dental hygiene routine will be thoroughly evaluated. If each of these variables appear to be sufficient, you could be a candidate for dental implants. If you have any chronic illnesses or you’re a tobacco user, it’s important to disclose this information to our team so we can consider these factors in our treatment plan as well.
