Implants Procedures
No Comments

Implant placement is a surgical procedure that inserts metal posts or frames into the jawbone to serve as artificial tooth roots. This surgery is usually done by an oral surgeon, periodontist, or prosthodontist.

First, the implant site is exposed by making an incision in the gum tissue. Next, holes are drilled into the bone and the implant posts or frames are inserted. Finally, the incision is closed with sutures.

The implant site will heal over the next few months and the artificial tooth root will fuse to the bone. Once this has occurred, the artificial tooth can be attached to the implant.

The entire dental implant process can take several months to complete.

Dental Implant Final Restoration

The final stage of the dental implant process is known as the final restoration. This is when the permanent artificial tooth (or teeth) are attached to the implant. The final restoration can be done in one of two ways:

– With a dental crown, which is a single artificial tooth that is made to look like your natural teeth.

– With a dental bridge, which is two or more artificial teeth that are attached to each other and used to fill a gap in your smile.

In some cases, the final restoration may be done at the same time as the surgery to uncover the implant. In other cases, it may be done several weeks or months later.
