The Implant Process
If you are interested in getting dental implants, there are a couple of steps that you need to take. When you visit our office, we will go over every step with you in detail so that you are fully aware of what to expect when getting your brand new smile!
01. Bone Grafting
Implants require adequate bone support to be held in place. A bone graft may be necessary prior to your implant surgery.
02. Place Implant
Once your bone graft has healed, we will place the implant into your jaw. This will fuse with your existing bone to provide a stable and strong hold.
03. Healing Period
Often, you will need three to six months to heal after your implant has been placed. This is necessary to ensure proper integration with the bone.
04. Set Abutment
The abutment is the piece that connects the implant post to the crown. This sits above your gums, but is completely covered by the dental crown.
05. Place Crown
Dental crowns cap your implant and abutment, giving you the ability to bite and chew without worry and look completely natural within your smile!
