Dental Implant Surgery / Procedure

Dental Implant ProceduresDental implants are an excellent way to replace one or multiple missing teeth. They improve quality of life by giving patients the ability to eat and smile with confidence.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are small titanium metal posts that can be used to replace one or many missing teeth. The post is placed in the jawbone to act as a root of a tooth that eventually supports a crown or some other prosthesis.

Before The Implant Procedure

It is necessary that prior to the placement of a dental implant, you are seen in the office by one of our dental surgeons for a consultation. At this time the doctor will evaluate the areas in the oral cavity where teeth are missing, take x-rays and review your medical history.

In addition the doctor will discuss your specific case, benefits that dental implants can offer you, the possible risks and complications associated with the proposed surgery as well as answer any questions you may have.

After The Implant Procedure

Once a dental implant is placed into the jawbone it is necessary to wait three to six months for the titanium post to integrate with your own bone and become stable. After this time a second small procedure may be necessary to expose the implant. Following this your implant will be ready to be restored by your dentist.
