Dental Implant Description

Dental implants are a surgical component that interface with the bone of the jaw or skull to support a dental prosthesis such as a crown, bridge, or a denture to replace a patient’s missing teeth.

Dental Implant Treatment Steps

  1. Implant placement

  2. Time to heal

  3. Permanent crown is placed

Dental Implant Treatment Process

Implant placement requires osseointegration of the implant to the patient’s bone/implant site.  During osseointegration, the bone attaches itself directly to the implant by growing all around it.  Once the implant is placed, depending on conditions and location of where the implant is placed, the implant needs anywhere from 3-6 months to achieve proper osseointegration.  Once proper implant placement and osseointegration 3-6 months has been completed, the patient will then come back for their final crown and restoration.
