Dental Implant Process
Step One – Consultation
Once you plan your free consultation at American Dental Solutions you will arrive for the first visit of the dental implant procedure. Here your Oral Surgeon will evaluate the health of your gums, jawbone, and the surrounding teeth as well as your overall health history. Additionally, your options for dental implants and sedation method will be presented to you. At the end of your consultation, our staff will cover your insurance information and will discuss the tooth implant cost. We have flexible low monthly payment options at American Dental Solutions that you will be informed about.
Step Two – The dental implant placement
Once the sedation method you have chosen has been applied, the titanium dental implants will be placed into your jawbone, and will remain below the gum. This section must remain in place for a minimum of three months to allow the bone to attach to the dental implant. Your temporary replacement tooth or teeth will be placed while the bonding takes place.
What to Expect While Healing
After having the lower portion of the implant embedded into the bone, a soft diet will help shorten the healing time and reduce any swelling more quickly. The deciding factors are your body’s ability to heal and how fast your jawbone bonds with the tooth implants.
Throughout the entire procedure, your dentist and the oral surgeon taking care of you will answer any questions that you may have about your dental implants. They will work to insure that you experience the least discomfort and disruption of your daily life possible.
Step Three – The Restoration
After your oral surgeon has determined that the dental implants have properly bonded with the bone, a titanium abutment will be affixed to the implant providing a strong base for the final crown or bridge to be attached and your smile will be complete again giving you the worry free smile you had before losing your teeth. You may now enjoy the life long benefits of a tooth implants procedure.
