A dental implant is an excellent choice for replacing missing teeth.
The most common kind of dental implant is a root form implant.
It is a small titanium post that replaces the roots of a missing tooth and supports a custom-made crown.
Implant placement involves multiple intervals, and treatment times can vary.
Initially, we need to determine if an implant is recommended for our patient.
We access health history, examine gum and jawbone health, and discuss treatment goals.
To check the health of the patient’s jawbone, we take panoramic x-rays and may take computerized tomography(CT) scans.
We take impressions and bite registrations to create an accurate model of your mouth.
The patient is informed if any additional procedures, such as bone grafting or gum surgery are needed.
Each implant case is different, but placing an implant generally involves two phases, surgically placing the implant and restoring the implant with a crown.
