What is involved in the dental implant placement procedure?

Posted 7 years ago

No different than a typical dental filling visit, dental implants can be placed through very small incisions in the anesthetized (numb) gum.  We also offer moderate sedation for patients who choose not to be alert for their dental treatment.

Most (if not all) of our patients report experiencing no discomfort during or after the treatment visit.  As well, most patients are able to return to work and their busy routines the very next day.  Where possible, patients leave the office with their teeth in place – thus, never having to be “toothless” for any length of time.

Within days, the gum will heal over the implant.  Within months, the bone will heal into the implant completely.  At that point, you will need to visit our office (usually twice) for impressions and fitting of the final tooth.
