The dental implant procedure is surgical, so local anesthesia is used to numb the area just like a crown or any other procedure that may cause discomfort. Often we prescribe a sedative prior to the procedure as well as pain medication for any discomfort that occurs after surgery if Ibuprofen is not enough. Most patients are returning to work next day.
Anyone missing a tooth or many teeth due to injury, disease or cavities may be a candidate for implants.The actual implant placement takes less than 1 hour. It can be completed in one visit or may take several visits. It depends on your unique situation and what is required to provide the very best result. To achieve maximum success implant placement requires planning prior to placement. 3D Cone Beam imaging technology to allows us to see and measure the planned implant site. Surgical templates are manufactured for your unique situation and it allows for precision placement based on our digital plan. Depending on your bone density and the implant stability we can plan on how long we must wait until the implant is ready to be restored.

So what is an implant?
It’s a small titanium screw that is embedded into the jaw, biologically compatible with the human body with no side effects, replacing the root of your tooth; it’s inserted by an Periodontics oral surgeon or Periodontist during a simple in office procedure.
Three to six months later, depending on location , your bone has embraced totally the implants and your dentist can restore them with crowns and bridges. Your existing bone is sufficient to accommodate the implants in most cases so even if you lost bone in the past that can today be replaced by artificial bone. Even denture wearers that were suffering in the past can today have bridges or have their existing dentures stabilized by implants. Sometimes, a series of implants are joined together to support a bridge or overdenture. Unlike removable dentures and bridges, a dental implant restores the entire tooth, from the root to the crown. Dental implants are fixed and not removable.

One of our strengths today is our implant treatments, and we do a lot of restorations on implants ranging from the single implant to full mouth restorations on implants.
Implants are basically a titanium screw that replaces the root that you’ve lost. Dental Implants are made of titanium which is a bio-compatible material with bone. Bone really loves it, grows around it and greets it like it’s own. And after some time, usually a couple of months or so, we can restore back the tooth to normal aesthetic function.
