Dental implants can be confusing in the beginning, but Dr. Coleman and our team are here to help! For more information, call our office today! We would be happy to discuss any questions you have.
The first step in any dental implant surgery procedure is a consultation. In a consultation, you will meet with Dr. Coleman to discuss the specifics of your situation. You will be evaluated for teeth implant candidacy. Dr. Coleman will take x-rays of your teeth and map out a personalized treatment plan with you.
Dental Implant Surgery
After you are established as a candidate for teeth implants, the next step is to place the implant. The implant is a rod that is placed in the jaw and fuses to the bone, replacing the missing tooth’s root. Our office offers sedation options to ensure that your procedure is completely comfortable.
Once the implant is placed, you will need some time for the rod to fuse to your jawbone and your mouth to heal. This time is important to the success of the dental implant. It allows the rod to become as strong as possible, which ensures that the teeth implants will last.
When the rod has fully fused to the bone, you are ready for your tooth replacement. This process varies depending on the work needed. A single tooth replacement utilizes a connector between the implant in the jaw and the crown placed to fill the missing tooth. Each crown is customized to perfectly match the natural teeth surrounding it.
Multiple missing teeth in a row are replaced with a bridge of crowns. The number of implants placed varies based on the number of teeth missing. Then, crowns are fused together in a bridge and placed over the implants, which hold them in place.
