Every dental implant procedure begins with a free consultation. At this consultation, our doctors create a customized treatment plan just for you, and you will learn exactly how much dental implants will cost you, without having to worry about any surprise fees.
When you have decided that you are ready to move forward with dental implants, you will meet with a prosthodontist, who will finalize your treatment plan and begin to prepare everything you’ll need for your procedure. Once this exam is complete, you are ready to schedule your procedure.
This is your big day. When you walk out of your procedure, your dental implants will be in place and you’ll go home with a temporary set of teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth.
It is important to keep in mind there is a recovery period following your dental implant procedure. Typically patients will be on a soft food diet for several weeks to a few months while their implants heal. During this time, the typical patient will come back in for several checkups to ensure that everything is healing properly. All of your post op checkups are at no additional cost.
This is the final step! When your mouth has finished healing and your new dental implants have stabilized, we will replace your temporary teeth with your new permanent teeth.
A dental implant is a titanium post (like a tooth root) that is surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath the gum line that allows your dentist to mount replacement teeth or a bridge into that area. In other words it is nothing but replacement tooth roots.
Modern dental implants make use of osseointegration, the biologic process where bone fuses tightly to the surface of specific materials such as titanium and some ceramics.
The dental implant, is placed surgically into the jawbone
As you heal, your implant will osseointegrate, or fuse with, your natural jawbone, with the two growing together to form a strong and long-lasting foundation for your replacement teeth. This healing process can take weeks to months. Once the implant bonds with the jawbone, a small connector – called an abutment – is placed on top of the dental implant to connect the implant to the replacement tooth or teeth.
An individual tooth, an implant-supported bridge or dentures containing multiple teeth are then attached to the abutment
Yes, anyone healthy enough to undergo a routine dental extraction or oral surgery can be considered for a dental implant.
To receive implants, you need to have healthy gums and adequate bone to support the implant
