Dental Implant Procedure


Your dental needs are unique to you, so we offer individualized treatment plans for each patient. In some cases, bone grafting may be needed prior to placement of the implants, especially if there isn't enough bone available to properly support the restoration. If you have enough bone or your bone is reconstructed, the implants will be surgically put into place.

After the titanium posts have been implanted, you'll need to wait at least four months so that the bone can fuse to it. In some cases, the gum tissue may grow over the implants, so a procedure may be needed to uncover it before tooth replacement. Temporary dentures may be available during this time, and after your permanent restorations are put into place, the implant itself will be entirely invisible. In total, the procedure will take 6–8 months, but most patients report minimal disruptions to their daily lives.

Surgical Benefits


In some cases, the implants won't need to be placed under the gum line. If this is your situation, a tiny healing cap can be secured over the top of the implant. These implants won't require another procedure in order to uncover them, but they will still need the entire four months of healing time prior to placing the artificial teeth. In certain situations, a non-restorable tooth may be removed, and an implant placed right away.

Dental implants are complicated procedures, and they will require the skills and expertise of both your general dentist and periodontist. Dr. Mark C. Waring will perform the actual implantation surgery along with extractions and bone grafting if needed. Your dentist will be responsible for fitting and creating the permanent teeth as well as making any temporary teeth that you might need to wear throughout the healing process.

Type of Anesthesia


Both the surgical implant placement and bone grafting can be performed in the office, and general or local anesthesia will be used to keep you comfortable.

Choosing Dental Implants


The more you learn about dental implants, the more you may realize that these restorations can completely change your life. When you lose multiple teeth, whether this is something you've dealt with for years or it is an entirely new situation, it can be difficult to come to terms with the change. Dental implants can open the door to improved self-confidence, allowing you to restore your old eating and socialization habits without feeling self-conscious or worrying about your traditional dentures slipping out of place.

Caring for Your Implants


After your smile has been restored with dental implants, it is important that you keep up a good oral hygiene routine so that your mouth stays healthy. You'll need to floss and brush daily, and you should also follow up with your dentist for regular examinations and cleaning. With proper care, your implants could possibly last a life time, making it especially important that you follow your dentist's orders in order to protect your investment.
