Steps For Dental Implant
Replacing a tooth with a dental implant most commonly consists of two different painless procedures. The first is the placement of the dental implant, which is a titanium screw that replaces the roots of your missing tooth. With the help of 3-D imaging, our doctors will be able to plan the precise placement of your dental implant. After the dental implant is placed, a period of 8-12 weeks is needed for the implant to fully integrate and become solid with your jawbone.
After integration of the implant, the next step to restore the missing tooth is to place a porcelain crown on top of the implant. Using advanced technology, your teeth and implant are scanned with a digital scanner and a custom crown will be fabricated to fit precisely on top of your implant. Most of the time, this crown can be done in-office in only one visit.
Function → Eat, speak and chew like you would with normal teeth
Health → prevent bone loss where your missing tooth would be
Aesthetics → the crown will look and feel like your natural tooth

Dental implants are titanium roots, that are replaced with in the jawbone to resemble a tooth or group of teeth. A screw is inserted through the gums and into the jawbone. A porcelain crown is then attached to the screw to become the new tooth or teeth. They can be used to support dental prosthesis including crowns, dentures, and bridges. Today’s treatments are so natural looking, no one will know you had surgery. There’s approximately a 95% success rate for all implants. With modern advances in dentistry, some implants can be restored immediately with life like all porcelain crowns. For more details ask your dentist.
