Evaluation for Dental Implants
If, like many others, you feel implant dentistry is the choice for you, we ask that you undergo a dental/radiographic examination and health history. During these consultation visits, your specific needs and considerations will be addressed by the doctors and by an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon referred by our practice. Your questions and concerns are important to us and our team will work with you very closely to help make your procedure a success, answer your questions and provide treatment alternatives.
Dental Implant Procedure
Dental implants are metal anchors, which act as tooth root substitutes. They are surgically placed into the jawbone. Very precise, custom fabricated posts are then attached to the implant. These posts are the connection between the implant in the bone and the visible crown.
The most ideal number, type, size, and positioning if the implants is determined through consultation between the restorative and the surgical dentist. The length of treatment time management of temporary tooth replacement and sequencing of treatment is highly individualized and will be thoroughly reviewed for each patient.
