After the site of your implant has been sufficiently numbed, our skilled dentist will use a small incision to guide a small implant post into place, directly into your jawbone. Placing the post directly into your jawbone provides a stable and permanent solution to missing teeth. After the post has been placed in the precise location, a smooth cover with be placed over the post to protect it during the healing process. Depending on your individual treatment plan, we may suggest a dental crown to cover the incision site.
Your implant will not be able to withstand the force of a normal bite until the post has firmly attached itself to your jawbone. This initial healing period varies greatly in length from patient to patient, but usually lasts three to six months. Our team will help you determine how you should eat, chew and talk during this period to help you function as normally as possible while your implant heals. Most of our patients experience minimal discomfort after implant placement.
After your implant site has healed, we offer a variety of restorative options including dental crowns and bridges to help you restore your smile to its original look and function. Regardless of your dental needs, we have a solution for you!
