What’s the procedure for getting dental implants?
Getting dental implants requires a number of visits over several months. The dentist or specialist will work together and take x-rays, impressions, or molds, of the jaw and teeth to gather information about bone tissue, gum tissue, and available spacing for implants. After surgical placement of the implant, healing and proper bone integration can take up to six months.
Once the integration is complete and the mouth is fully healed, the dentist will proceed with the final restoration. The dentist will provide care instructions when the final treatment is complete.
Good oral hygiene, eating habits and regular dental visits all aid in the life of your new implants.
Since implants have multiple uses in your mouth, we recommend a consultation to find out how they can help you.
