What Can I Expect When Getting Dental Implant Surgery?

Posted By San Diego Cosmetic Dentist || 6-Sep-2013

When you contact our firm about dental implant surgery, the first thing we will do is schedule an appointment for your initial consultation. During your consultation we will get a full set of dental x-rays to identify the exact point at which the implants will be placed during surgery.

We will also have your bones assessed to determine whether the bone will be able to accept and support the placement of a dental implant. Providing all is in order, we will schedule the surgery. Your surgery will be performed in a sterile environment and you will be placed under a local anesthetic and will not feel any pain.

Once the implant has been placed in your jaw, it will require a certain amount of time to assimilate into the jawbone. The exact time frame will depend on the type of dental implant surgery, as well as a variety of other factors.

Most dental implants fully heal within 3-6 months. You will be given a specific time estimate, along with exact instructions on how to care for your new permanent teeth. Once the healing is complete, an impression of the implant is required to make a crown or bridge. The crown or bridge will then be tested to ensure it is an exact fit and that it not only looks good, but that it is functioning correctly. To schedule your initial consultation for dental implant surgery, contact us today.
