The Dental Implant Procedure

The first step in the process involves numbing the gums completely with a local anesthetic, so the procedure is pain-free. Then, your dentist will make an incision in the gums and place the titanium implant. Over the course of several weeks, the gums will heal and the implant will begin to fuse with the jawbone in a process called osseointegration. Once the implant has been fully anchored, your dentist will attach a natural-looking crown to the top of the implant that will be fully functional and blend in with the rest of the teeth.

Benefits of Utilizing Dental Implants

Although they are considered a more invasive procedure, there are many benefits to choosing dental implants over other dental restorations. These benefits include:

  • Durable, long-lasting restorative option
  • Improve ability to speak and eat
  • Improve appearance of the smile
  • Help preserve bone density
  • Can be treated like a natural tooth

Am I a Good Candidate for Dental Implants?

The good news is, dental implants work well for many patients who are suffering from tooth loss. If you are a tobacco user, have periodontal disease, diabetes, or an autoimmune disorder that slows down the healing process, dental implants may not be the best choice for you. Additionally, dental implant surgery is not recommended for children, as their jawbones are still developing. Otherwise, dental implants tend to be a great choice as long as you have:

  • Healthy jawbone density
  • Healthy gums
  • Good overall health
  • Good oral health
  • Patience for the implant process
