What’s the Dental Implant Process Like?
Our dentists begin the dental implant process by first examining a patient’s mouth to determine if they’re a candidate for care, or if another option like dentures or bridges may be better. If a person is a candidate for implants, all financial costs will be covered before care ever begins.
Implants Require Three Steps:
- Placing a titanium fixture into the jaw bone to replace the root of the missing tooth. After a few months, the fixture and jaw bone form a strong bond, which is what holds the implant in place.
- Next, an abutment is added, which helps to anchor the crown to the portion of the implant under the gum.
- Lastly, a custom made crown or bridge is placed over the implant. Once the crown is placed, a patient can smile beautifully, speak properly, and even eat better!
With proper care, dental implants can last for years. In fact, we have even seen implants last for the remainder of a patient’s life.
