Welcome to the initial phase of your implant procedure, where we lay the foundation for your new smile. This step involves a surgical process known as dental implant placement. During this procedure, a small post, resembling a tiny screw made from materials like titanium, is carefully positioned within your jawbone. This post serves as a substitute for your natural tooth root, supporting your jawbone and providing a sturdy base for both your replacement tooth and the implant restoration. Following this surgery, we will offer you comprehensive guidelines for a smooth recovery.
Subsequent to the implant placement, a crucial healing phase follows. This period allows the implant post to meld seamlessly with your jawbone, ensuring a stable and enduring outcome for your treatment. This biological bonding process is scientifically termed “osseointegration.” After successful integration, our experienced dentists and team will collaborate with you to craft and position your personalized implant restoration.
In cases where there has been a loss of bone tissue prior to the implant procedure, you might require a bone graft treatment to fortify the foundation before the implant can be installed. Similarly, any existing dental issues like tooth decay or gum disease must be addressed prior to implant placement.
