  • Make Eating & Speaking Easier
  • Don’t Require Special Treatment
  • Have No Food Restrictions
  • Help Maintain Face Shape & Jawbone Density
  • Can Last a Lifetime with Proper Care

Dental Implants: about the process

The process for placing one or more dental implants can take several weeks or months, depending on your oral health condition, treatment needs, and cosmetic goals. We will discuss what to expect from your treatment during your initial consultation.

The dental implant process begins with a small incision in the gums. Then we make a hole in the jaw bone and place the implant. Once the gums start to heal, the implant will begin to fuse with the jawbone in osseointegration. This fusion is what makes implants so stable, like they are natural teeth. After several weeks of healing, we attach a natural-looking restoration to the top of the implant. This bridge, denture, or crown is designed to blend in seamlessly with the rest of your smile, providing normal function and aesthetics.

Who is Eligible for Dental Implants?

Patients should generally have good overall health and a healthy jawbone and gums to support an implant. If your jawbone density needs to be repaired, we recommend performing a bone graft or sinus lift surgery first, which will lengthen the overall process. In addition, patients who smoke regularly or have autoimmune disorders will often need to have their unique situation assessed by our team, as these factors can slow down the implant healing process.
