The Basics of Dental Implant Treatment

Dental Implants are sweeping the nation in popularity because of their extremely high number of successful cases and treatments. Dental implants are a great option when it comes to restoring a tooth to complete your smile. However, we understand that with new treatments comes questions. That is why, our office is here to walk you through the basics of dental implant treatment.

Step 1: First, we will examine your smile and create an individualized treatment plan. In order to do so, we will thoroughly examine your mouth by taking a series of X-rays. Once we receive all of the information we need, we will take the necessary steps.

Step 2: If your jawbone is strong enough, a tooth root implant will be placed into the bone socket of your missing tooth. The implant will be made of titanium. Then, your bone will need to heal around the post to secure it in place. This could take six to twelve weeks.

Step 3: When the bone has healed, your dentist will attach an abutment to the post. Then, [heshe] will create a dental crown that is perfect for your smile. When the crown is ready, [heshe] will place it over the abutment.

Now that you know all about the steps involved in dental implant treatment, you’re ready for your appointment! If you have any questions or if you would like to talk to your dentist, Dr. [doctor_name], regarding dental implants, please call our office today at [phone]. We are pleased to help you, and we look forward to hearing from you!
